Types of Sedation

The type of sedation dentistry we offer in our Plano dental office:

IV Sedation is administered directly into your bloodstream. IV sedation is a fast acting and effective way to provide relaxing and comfort before your procedure. Once the IV is removed, the effects of the sedation quickly diminish. If you are receiving IV sedation, we recommend you coordinate a ride to and from our dental office. Dr. Dean has undergone extensive training to offer IV Sedation in our Plano dental office. Throughout your procedure, your vital signs will be monitored to ensure everything is running smoothly.

Oral Sedation is administered through a pill that patients take before treatment. While under oral sedation, patients will be in a sleep-like state but will remain in control of their bodily functions and breathing rate.
