Glendale Dentist Explains Common Procedures For Which We Use Sedation Treatment

Written by Dr. McKay on Mar 16, 2015

When it comes to getting the dental care that you need, you want to make sure that you are not only achieving great dental results, but that you are also doing it in a way that is comfortable for you. Modern dental technology makes it simpler than ever before to breeze through dental treatment—even if you are having extensive restorative work done.

Here are some situations in which our Glendale sedation dentists might recommend sedation treatment for your comfort and convenience:

Root Canal Therapy

If you have a severely damaged tooth that needs to be rehabilitated with root canal treatment, you may benefit from sedation treatment. Root canal therapy involves our dental team removing the root of your tooth, so we want to make sure that you stay comfortable as we work on this sensitive part of your smile.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

Many patients benefit from sedation therapies when they are having their wisdom teeth removed. In some cases patients have fully erupted wisdom teeth—these teeth can sometimes be pulled quickly like a normal tooth. However, in general, people have wisdom teeth that are at least partially encased in the jawbone. That is why sedation treatment is so vital when our dental team is removing wisdom teeth.

Dental Implant Placement

Another instance in which sedation is useful is during dental implant root implantation. In this first phase of treatment our dental team is actually surgically inserting your implant root into your jawbone. Sedation dentistry will allow you to have a comfortable and calm implantation experience.

Our Glendale sedation dentists will be able to advise you on whether or not sedation treatment is right for your life, and your dental procedure. To speak to a member of our helpful team, just give our office a call, or use our website to submit your question and contact information.
