Our team of oral and maxillofacial surgeons help patients in Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, with everything from extraction to implant placement, and even jawbone grafting! However, we know that the thought of oral surgery could make people feel comfortable. In today’s blog, we’re looking at the sedation options we provide to ensure your comfort.
Ensuring a Comfortable Visit
We know that undergoing an oral surgical procedure is more involved than placing a filling or dental crown, which is why we take steps to ensure you feel comfortable. First, we will answer any questions or address any concerns you may have about the procedure. We will also carefully explain how the procedure will work, and what the treatment will involve. Common examples of our treatments include removing wisdom teeth, or teeth that have become damaged. We treat facial trauma, and can rebuild lost structure in the jawbone with ridge augmentation and sinus lifts. Replacing missing teeth with dental implants, and even securing a fixed denture, is also possible!
Easing Your Dental Anxiety
One major issue between people and receiving the care they need is dental anxiety. We know that your fears are real, and they can keep you from undergoing the care necessary to preserve your smile. But if you need oral surgery, we want you to know that we will listen to you, and that our sedation options often help those with even severe anxiety remain calm and relaxed, with no memory of the procedure afterward.
We have multiple options available for our patients. Nitrous oxide is administered through a mask over the nose, and the effects are immediate but wear off just as quickly when the procedure is over. Oral sedation, such as Valium, causes you to enter a deeper state that takes time to wear off. For the deepest forms of sedation, we have IV and general sedation. Our team is licensed and accredited, and always follows strict health and safety guidelines for each and every patient. We’re experienced in offering care for pediatric patients and the elderly alike. We even have the same monitoring and safety standards that are followed in hospital operating rooms!
If you have any questions about how we ensure your health and comfort when you visit us, then please contact our team today. We would love to see you and help you transform your smile.
