Even the most courageous dental patients can get a little weak in the knees at the thought of oral surgery. But you can’t afford to let your fears get the better of you. If oral surgery is recommended, there’s a good reason for it, and delaying the procedure may only result in more complicated problems in the future.
Comfortable Oral Surgery Techniques
However, you will be pleasantly surprised to know that the days of lengthy, uncomfortable procedures are over. The compassion and understanding of your dental team, paired with state-of-the-art technology and sedation techniques, allows most oral surgery procedures today to be performed efficiently. This means less discomfort and less time in the dental chair for you.
Good General Health is Important
In general, you should be in good oral health before undergoing oral surgery. As part of your comprehensive dental history, your dentist will already have a good picture of your general health. This should include medications you take or conditions that may require a special approach.
Gentle Sedation to Put You at Ease
Most dentists offer sedation like nitrous oxide to help you relax and drift off during your procedure. If your dentist prescribed a calming medication, you should take it about an hour before your appointment. With oral sedation, the medicine stays in your bloodstream for several hours, so you will need a friend to drive you to and from your appointment.
