IV Sedation is used in dentistry for patients that suffer from dental anxiety, have a bad gag reflex, or patients that have had a bad dental experience in the past. IV Sedation also helps patients get through very long or complicated dental procedures. In some cases IV Sedation is the best choice to help keep patients relaxed and calm during their procedure.

 

IV Sedation is given intravenously, and is a type of sedation that is controlled by the doctor. IV sedation can provide moderate sedation or deep sedation depending on the treatment and patient’s needs. Patients are usually in a semi-awake state, and have the ability to communicate if needed. Most patients do not have any memory of the procedure with IV sedation.

 

At Mesquite Dental & Implant Center in Mesquite, TX we always make our patient’s health a priority, and work with each patient to choose the best type of sedation. During every procedure we monitor the patient’s breathing and blood pressure carefully to ensure the procedure goes smoothly.

 

Many patients wonder if they have used IV sedation in the past, will it still be effective if they need another procedure. IV sedation will always be effective and works quickly. There is no need to worry if you have been recommended for another procedure using IV sedation. You will still receive the same effects the next time you need to use this type of sedation for a dental procedure.

What are the Benefits of IV Sedation?

  • Great alternative to general anesthesia
  • Is a strong sedative compared to other sedation options
  • Effects are felt quickly and administered intravenously
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Patients have temporary amnesia and do not remember the dental procedure
    Helps to suppress gag reflex
  • Allows patients to remain in a semi-conscious state

Recovery is easy and most patients will need to stay in the procedure room for about an hour. We recommend patients bring a friend or family member to help drive them home. Patients may feel drowsy or sluggish, but this should subside after a day or so. Physical activity should be limited until the side effects wear off completely.

Popcorn and Dental Implant

Dental implants are an investment, and after you go through the process and finally have that perfect smile, it is important to care for them properly. Watching what you eat or chew on helps to ensure your implants stay in great condition. There are certain foods patients should avoid with their dental implants to help keep them looking and feeling great.

 

At Mesquite Dental & Implant Center, we specialize in implant dentistry, and our team is trained to work with each patient throughout the entire process. We prepare our patients on what to expect, and discuss how to care for your implants at home. Practicing good oral hygiene is always key to ensure you keep your implants clean and free of harmful plaque.

Can I Eat Popcorn?

Popcorn is one of the foods that should be avoided if you have dental implants. Any food that is a seed can be dangerous, and can cause you to have potential issues. Popcorn specifically can get stuck between the teeth and gums, and damage your implants. If you chew on an un-popped kernel, this can put stress on your implant, and can cause the implant to become weak or unstable. Implants are durable, but in some cases, they can break or crack if they are not treated with care.

 

We always recommend patients treat their implants just like their natural teeth. Keeping your dental implants clean and healthy can avoid unnecessary or painful trips to the dentist. After investing in your smile, you want to avoid the need for repair. There are plenty of snacks and foods that are softer, and are safe to eat with dental implants.
