When a patient learns that a dental treatment is necessary, one of the most common concerns is their comfort during the procedure. Rest assured to know that various types of sedation can be used based on the needs of each patient.
With routine dentistry, such as cavities and fillings, local anesthetic is often all that is required to ensure comfort during every step of the procedure. But, there are times when general anesthesia might be required due to extensive work that needs to be done, such as tooth extraction or implant placement.
At the Dental Group of Bloomingdale, we are working to provide the most comfortable experience for every patient. We will help you understand what to expect for the treatments that are required. You are welcome to talk to us at any time about the sedation options that are available when dental surgery is needed.
Two common types of sedation are offered to our patients:
Regardless of the type of sedation that is used, a local anesthetic is utilized so that you will be numb when you wake up. This step helps with pain management during the first few hours after treatment.
What should you expect if you choose sedation for your dental treatment? Our team will help you determine the right solution based on your needs. Then, we can provide detailed information about the way the sedation will be administered and how you will feel during the treatment. The most common side effects are confusion, tiredness, and unsteadiness after coming out of sedation. Keep in mind that you need to be prepared with someone who can drive you home after the treatment is complete.
You have the opportunity to decide on the sedation that is a good fit for your needs. Our team at the Dental Group of Bloomingdale is focused on offering the most comfortable solutions. At the same time, we want our patients to feel empowered in choosing the dental services that are a good fit. You are welcome to contact us at any time if you need more information about the treatments that we offer.
