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.

Bone Grafting

The bone grafting procedure is an excellent way to replace lost bone tissue and encourage natural bone growth.  A bone graft may be required to create a stable foundation for dental implant placement or to make the smile appear more aesthetically pleasing.

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.

Oral Surgery Services

General Dentists can care for patients who experience conditions such as problems with wisdom teeth or those requiring dental implants. They treat accident victims suffering from facial injuries, perform reconstructive and dental implant surgery, and care for patients with tumors or cysts of the jaws and functional and aesthetic conditions of the maxillofacial areas. 

We understand the anxiety and inconvenience associated with any kind of surgery. Our skilled and caring staff will be with you every step of the way, and most oral surgeries are completed in less than an hour.

We have general dentists trained and skilled in a number of oral surgery procedures in our New York offices.

 

For more complex oral surgery cases and conditions, our New York general dentists may refer you to Dental Specialists.

Preventive Dentistry

Regular preventive dental appointments are an important step in your oral health routine. These biannual checkups can also result in less extensive and less expensive treatment for dental conditions that may develop, and help you keep your natural teeth for a lifetime. During a regular preventive appointment at Western New York Dental Group, you will receive a thorough hygiene cleaning and a dental exam to check for cavities and other conditions. You may also receive x-rays.

Implants

Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Someone who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.

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.

Facial Trauma

The oral surgery specialist performs the proper treatment of facial injuries. These professionals must be well versed in emergency care, acute treatment and long-term reconstruction and rehabilitation – not just for physical reasons but emotional as well. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are trained, skilled and uniquely qualified to manage and treat facial trauma. Injuries to the face, by their very nature, impart a high degree of emotional, as well as physical trauma to patients. The science and art of treating these injuries requires special training involving a “hands on” experience and an understanding of how the treatment provided will influence the patient’s long term function and appearance.

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.

Endodontic/Root Canal Therapy

Root canals are typically needed when an untreated cavity progresses rapidly and spreads to the pulp of the tooth. The tooth pulp is made up of blood vessels, connective tissues and nerves. Once the bacteria of decay have reached the tooth pulp, it can be extremely painful. If your dentist determines that a root canal is the best solution for you, the procedure can typically be done with minimal discomfort and often keeps you from losing the tooth.

Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics deals with simple to complicated full-mouth restorations that may involve crowns, veneers, fixed bridges, dentures, dental implants, or mixed implant and natural tooth restorations. Your general dentist may refer you to a prosthodontist for more complex restoration or replacement cases.

TMJ Disorders

TMJ disorders are a family of problems related to your complex jaw joint. TMJ stands for temporomandibular joint, which is the name for each joint (right and left) that connects your jaw to your skull. If you have had symptoms like pain or a “clicking” sound, you’ll be glad to know these problems are more easily diagnosed and treated than they were in the past. Since some types of TMJ problems can lead to more serious conditions, early detection and treatment are important.

Sedation Dentistry

Powerful pain-killing medications known as anesthetics not only help a patient avoid discomfort during a procedure, but post-operatively as well. Your dentist will talk to you about the most appropriate sedation option to address your particular needs.
