Sedation For Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Call today to schedule a free wisdom teeth consultation.
Most people do not have room in their mouths for wisdom teeth, and when the wisdom teeth try to come in, typically during the young adult years, trouble ensues.
Because of changes in the jawbone structure and diets as humans have evolved over the centuries, there’s no room for wisdom teeth. Without adequate room in the jaw, wisdom teeth become impacted and/or grow in at an odd angle. As a result, the vast majority of people need to have their wisdom teeth extracted.
If they’re not extracted, wisdom teeth can become infected, which can lead to a dental emergency.
Don’t let this happen to you! If you suspect your wisdom teeth are coming in, give us a call. There’s a chance that you have room in your mouth, and that your wisdom teeth will come in without a hitch. But it’s always better to know, before a small problem turns into a lot of pain and potentially added expense.
While nitrous oxide and oral sedation are options, most people choose to have IV sedation for wisdom teeth extractions. Also known as general anesthesia, IV sedation allows you to be completely unconscious during the procedure.
