There may be a time when oral surgery is the best solution for your dental care, such as dental implants, or having a tooth repaired or removed. Nothing provokes more fear and discomfort than knowing oral surgery is necessary. Oral surgery may seem somewhat overwhelming and traumatic. Our goal is to eliminate this fear. We want you to feel comfortable throughout the duration of any surgical procedure. We will take the time to discuss your concerns and how you are feeling. In addition, we will provide you with helpful tips for overcoming dental anxieties, which may include simple comforts such as a blanket and neck pillow, or more involved comforts such as conscious sedation. Our doctors will provide you with the best information to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
At the time of your procedure, our doctors will devise an individualized plan specific to your dental needs, which will consist of precautionary measures prior to your appointment, the actual procedure and the healing process.
IV & Conscious Sedation
Dental procedures can seem somewhat overwhelming and traumatic. We understand, and while our dentists are some of the best in the nation, it does nothing to negate that fact. If you are one of those patients who are white-knuckled about having a procedure done, you can take comfort in knowing that we offer I.V. sedation. When administered, an intravenous sedative induces you into a state of deep relaxation. While you do remain conscious, you may not have clear memories of the procedure – including the normal sounds generally associated with a surgical procedure.
Dental Implants are an option for people who are missing teeth, wearing uncomfortable dentures or are not interested in wearing a bridge. The process for dental implants involves placing posts onto the upper and/or lower jaw, providing replacement teeth a sturdier anchor for a more durable function.
