Sedation Dentistry in McKinney
For certain dental procedures, it’s necessary for us to administer sedation dentistry.
This is most likely to occur when a procedure is rather complicated, or when patients become extremely anxious about having to go through a certain procedure. Our McKinney sedation dentists will consider the situation and use their best discretion about when sedation becomes necessary, and which level of sedation is right for you.
There are a few different levels of anesthesia used in sleep dentistry in McKinney. The kind your dentist chooses depends on your comfort and the type of procedure you will undergo. The three types used are moderate sedation, deep sedation and general anesthesia. Moderate sedation is the lowest intensity of sedation for relieving the stress of some procedures. Deep sedation goes just a bit farther than moderate in terms of reducing the patient’s consciousness, giving him or her the relief they need to avoid experiencing pain or anxiety while still also allowing them to respond to basic commands from the dentist. General anesthesia, meanwhile, is another step farther as it creates a total loss of consciousness for the duration of the procedure.
Our anesthesiologist, Dr. Dashty, has a great deal of experience and training in all forms of anesthesia. You can be confident that you are in good hands whenever you need to undergo sedation dentistry in McKinney, TX.

What happens while I am under sedation? During your sedation, Dr. Dashty will monitor your overall comfort and how you are responding to the anesthesia. He attaches monitoring equipment to specific points to help gauge multiple parameters. Your eyes, pressure points, and body temperature are all monitored under sedation.
