Dentist in 94538 provides wisdom tooth removal with IV sedation
Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta of the Center for Implant Dentistry in the 94538 area encourage patients to take the time to learn about their third molars. These teeth, often referred to as the wisdom teeth, are known for becoming problematic. They can become impacted and fail to erupt. They can also break through the gum line and become troublesome, resulting in an increased risk for periodontal disease, cavities, and misalignment of the remaining teeth. Abscesses, cysts, and cavities may also warrant the extraction of wisdom teeth. This is why patients will often have them removed by a dentist.
At the Center for Implant Dentistry, not only do we offer restorative treatments but we can provide patients with solutions to their general and preventative dentistry needs, including wisdom tooth removal. Patients are often concerned about the procedure, fearing pain and discomfort well before they even sit in the dental chair. Thankfully, our team of dentists provides appropriate anesthetics and sedation. We can offer local anesthetics as well as sedation. Our practice offers both IV sedation and oral conscious sedation, both effective at reducing anxiety and making patients calm and comfortable during their dental procedures.
Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta can describe both types of sedation to patients before they choose the one most appropriate for them. IV sedation is typically suggested for wisdom tooth surgery because it puts most patients â€œunderâ€ during their procedure. They sleep throughout the treatment, making it even easier for the dentist to perform the treatment quickly and easily without issue. Oral conscious sedation allows the patient to stay awake during treatments, which may not be desirable for wisdom tooth surgery. Oral conscious sedation is better for patients with mild to moderate anxieties that need to be seen but should be responsive during their dental treatment.
