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.
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.Learn more
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.Learn more
As we age, our dental care needs change. Seniors may need more restorative care to ensure a healthy smile. At Western New York Dental Group, we offer complete senior dental care, including dentures, dental implants, gum disease prevention and a discount program for our older patients.Learn more
Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is a bacterial infection of the gums and bones that hold the teeth in place. Gum disease can affect patients of all ages, and even the healthiest of smiles can be at risk. Gingivitis is the initial stage of this disease, and, if treated at this stage, gum disease can often be prevented and reversed. However, if left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss and unsightly changes to the soft tissues around the teeth. The good news is that gum disease is relatively easy to prevent by maintaining proper dental hygiene (brushing and flossing) and making regular dental visits.Learn more
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.Learn more
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.Learn more
