Your dentist recommends removing your wisdom teeth because they are decayed or aren’t erupting correctly in your mouth. Getting your teeth extracted can be daunting to many but you may not even remember the procedure if you opt for Wisdom Teeth Anesthesia, one area of sedation dentistry.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation Dentistry is a safe way to help ease the process of dental treatment. In many instances, sedation keeps you conscious but you may feel calm and comfortable. Dental treatment can bring fear or anxiety to most of the people and facing surgical procedures can feel even more apprehensive. sedation dentistry uses medication to relax patients, thus helping to manage any discomfort the patients may experience during dental treatment. Sometimes simple checkup can make many people tremble with fear. Oral Hygiene and dental care are essential to your overall health. The sedation dentistry will ensure that you get the treatment you need without the anxiety you normally feel during a visit.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

Third molars or wisdom teeth are the last molars to emerge and are located at the back of the mouth. Mostly, the inadequate space in the mouth doesn’t allow wisdom teeth to erupt properly. This can further make it impossible to adequately maintain the teeth. Reasons to remove wisdom teeth: Wisdom teeth extractions are mostly performed because of an active problem such as pain, swelling, or infection. If a wisdom tooth isn’t extracted, it may cause a number of harmful outcomes, including:

  • Teeth damage– Second molars can be adversely affected by impacted wisdom teeth, resulting in tooth decay and periodontal disease(gum disease).
  • Diseases– Although uncommon, cysts and tumors can occur in the area surrounding the impacted wisdom teeth.
  • Infection – Bacteria and food can become trapped under the gum tissue, which can result in infection.
Sedative and Anesthetics There are many types of sedation one can opt for depending on the anxiety level and the procedure’s complexity:
  • Local anesthesia- This blocks the sensation of pain during the procedure by numbing the area of the mouth to be treated.
  • Conscious sedation – An oral medication that is taken with anti-anxiety pill before the procedure. One may feel a little drowsy.
  • Nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” – You breathe a controlled mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a mask placed on your nose. This allows you to feel relaxed during the treatment.
  • Intravenous (IV) sedation – This is taken orally or through a vein. IV sedation works quickly and is used in combination with local anesthesia.
  • General anesthesia – A combination of oral and IV medications that sedate you.

If you have been delaying wisdom teeth extraction, sedation can alleviate your apprehension about the procedure.
