Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral Conscious Sedation

Conscious Sedation is defined as a minimally reduced level of consciousness that retains the patient's ability to breath independently and respond to questions or follow instructions. Sedation Dentistry, sometimes called Relaxation Dentistry, is one way that a dentist can manage pain and anxiety during dental appointments. Unlike general anesthesia where a patient is completely unconscious, the patient can interact with the dentist, but typically has no memory of the procedure.

Are you a candidate for Oral Conscious Sedation? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you experience extreme anxiety or fear when you're facing a dental appointment?
  • Do you gag easily?
  • Have you put off or canceled a dental appointment due to anxiety?
  • Have you had trouble in the past getting numb prior to receiving dental care?
  • Are you facing multiple dental procedures and worry that you won't be able to tolerate them?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, Oral Conscious Sedation might be right for you.

Oral sedation can be used for anything including filling a cavity, performing root canals or surgery to cosmetic dental services. You can regain your oral health or address painful conditions with greater ease.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth, usually in a person’s late teens or twenties. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this does not generally happen. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. They may grow sideways, partially emerge from the gum and even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to successfully erupt. Your dentist can determine if you need your wisdom teeth removed from the x-rays taken during your usual hygiene cleanings.

Extractions

The surgical removal of teeth is a common procedure in our office. You and your doctor may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced gum disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.

The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.

To avoid these complications, in most cases, your doctor will discuss alternatives to extractions as well as replacement options for the extracted tooth such as dental implants.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are changing the way people live and are often the best option for people who have experienced tooth loss. They are the closest thing to natural teeth that modern dental technology has to offer. They are a desirable alternative to dentures as these are “permanent teeth” that look, feel and function similar to natural teeth. Dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The posts act as tooth root substitutes and, within three to six months, the bone bonds with the titanium to create a strong foundation for artificial teeth. If you are considering dental implants, give us a call and we will thoroughly examine your mouth and dental records to determine if they are a good option.

Anesthesia

Dentistry has advanced to the point in which pain is almost a thing of the past. Powerful pain-killing medications known as anesthetics not only help a patient avoid discomfort during a procedure, but post-operatively as well. Some patients, especially children, may require higher doses of anesthetic than others.
