Pain-free, stress-free dental treatment is possible with IV Sedation at Lincoln Crossings Dental Care.
IV sedation is one of three sedation options we offer at Lincoln Crossings Dental Care. It consists of a medication administered intravenously to place you under heavy sedation while undergoing certain types of dental treatment, like implant placement surgery or tooth extraction. It can only be administered by a doctor, and you must be monitored while under IV sedation for your health and safety.
How IV Sedation Works
IV sedation is perfectly safe when administered by a trained professional like Dr. Stryker. Side effects and allergic reactions may occur very rarely, which is why it is so important to be honest and thorough when discussing your health and medical history with your dental team. You will not be able to drive or go back to work after you’ve had IV sedation because the effects take several hours to wear off completely. You will, however, have very little memory, if any, of the procedure.
We want you to have the best possible experience at Lincoln Crossings Dental Care, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that your procedure goes smoothly. Dr. Stryker will send you home with after-care instructions to help you recover as quickly as possible. However, if you experience any complications or you have any concerns once you are at home, call us right away.
IMPORTANT: Do not plan on driving yourself home after your procedure.
You must have prearranged transportation for when the procedure is over. Additionally, do not plan to go back to work or to another appointment the same day. You will need time to rest and recover from your procedure.
