Anxiety Free Experiences
When a tooth needs to be removed, let’s take an instance, a patient’s got a severe decay in the tooth and it’s gone down below the bone there and we’ve got a lot of infection. Many times. What we’ll do is we’ll put the patient on antibiotic and some pain medication to get the infection reduced to the point where we can be able to see them and comfortably be able to remove the tooth. Sometimes when we get into a hot situation like that, we will give certain anesthetics that are able to block the pain better than the conventional anesthetics that we have.
We have certain techniques that are able to get right directly to the area and allow the patient to be more comfortable. Sometimes we will use nitrous oxide for sedation to help the patient relieves some of the anxiousness that they have during that. Again, a good postoperative course comes from good administration of medication, preoperatively, if we can and then also postoperatively. Sometimes if the tooth is broken off and the tooth needs to come out, we can place an implant at the same time. And in many instances, place a tooth over the top of the implant, which allows the patient to return to work, return to life as if the tooth was still there. And it provides a service for them and it improves the quality of their life.
