What Is IV Sedation?

We offer intravenous (IV) sedation to help our Allen, TX patients enjoy a more comfortable dental experience. IV sedation may be used on patients who experience stress or fear about going to the dentist. This treatment uses anti-anxiety medication that is delivered directly into your vein to keep you calm and relaxed during your dental sessions. Although you are not really asleep throughout the procedure, the relaxation and short-term memory loss could make you feel as though you've been asleep. We can adjust the amount of medication, depending upon what you need, to ensure your safety. To learn more about IV sedation, contact The Dentist of Allen at your earliest convenience.

What Should I Expect During IV Sedation?

During IV sedation, a small needle will be placed in your vein and the medicine will be injected. You will start to notice the effects within a few seconds. We will then perform your dental procedure while simultaneously monitoring the IV levels. After the procedure is complete, the IV will be removed and you'll feel alert within a couple of minutes.

It is wise not to drive for at least 24 hours following IV sedation. It's recommended that you arrange for someone to pick you up from your dental appointment and take you home. You may feel tired for the rest of the day so we recommend that you drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and relax if possible. Some people become nauseous or experience memory loss, but these side effects typically subside within a day. If you notice any issues or if your symptoms persist, contact our office right away.

Took my kids here for the first time. The office staff was friendly and quick. Our wait time was little to none and they have late hours so the kids don’t miss school!

I love the thorough cleanings and professional care I receive here. I couldn't ask for a better dentist and am very glad my family chose to come here. I recommend this office 100% and some. See you in 6 months.

I have been going to David and Dr. Kim since 1986. He is the only dentist I will let touch my mouth. They are honest and they will always be up front with me. I really like the girls in the front office also. He hires the best!!! Their prices are the same as other dentists. The equipment is state of the art. I like the way they decrease the pain of any shots that has to be put in my mouth. Do you want to pay for dental work that will have to be redone in a few years? If you do, do not go to this office. They always use the best and the most cost effective treatment.

Friendly and knowledgeable staff, it’s an easy process from start to finish. The dental hygienists are awesome, and do a great job. I have seen both dentists there and I would recommend them both, Dr. Koelker and Dr. Kim. The front office staff does a lot to make sure I am able to schedule and change appointments if needed, and have even reached out after hours via text to double check my insurance several nights before my appointment, to see if I needed to switch to private pay to make sure I wasn’t potentially billed beyond my limits. That’s great service.

Yes I recommend The Dentist of Allen. Both my wife and I have been patients for close to 20 years. We both think Dr Kim is great, along with the rest of the staff.
