Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for permanent or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth. We place implants for a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth or replace a full upper or lower denture or partial.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
A wisdom tooth is extracted to correct an actual problem or to prevent problems that may come up in the future. We offer many types of anesthesia to keep you comfortable during your procedure. We will also give you medication to make sure your recovery is as painless as possible.
We offer IV anesthesia as an option for many of our procedures depending on the patient’s anxiety. When given this type of anesthesia, the patient falls asleep and is completely unaware of the procedure being performed. Medications are administered through an IV line and the vital signs are closely monitored. Patients elect for this with more involved procedures such as removal of wisdom teeth, multiple extractions or placement of dental implants.
While making the patient more comfortable but not completely putting them to sleep, we offer laughing gas. It is a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen are administered through a nasal breathing apparatus. The patient will remain conscious, but in a relaxed condition. Laughing gas has a sedative and analgesic (pain-controlling) effect and can be performed with just about any procedure.
