Whether out of necessity or to ease the anxiety of patients, sedation dentistry can be used for a variety of dental procedures. If you come to Parkcrest Dental Group for a procedure, you may be administered a sedative. As a licensed Missouri Dental Board administer of sedatives, we can make your procedure much less stressful. So what are some common procedures where we might use a sedative? Read on to find out more!
Wisdom Teeth Removal
One of the more obvious procedures that utilize sedation is wisdom teeth removal. This is a long and complex procedure, which would also cause significant discomfort if you were conscious. Thus, we use deep sedation to ensure the passage of time and discomfort is at an absolute minimum. Make sure you have a ride home after a procedure like this, as it can take hours for the sedative to wear off. When you get your wisdom teeth removal procedure done at Parkcrest Dental Group, you can rest assured that we will do everything we can to put you at ease and make you comfortable.

Filling a cavity can be a bit uncomfortable, so it’s common to use a mild, orally administered sedative. An oral sedative will numb the area where it’s applied, which makes having a cavity filled much more manageable. It also will greatly help anyone who has anxiety about getting the procedure. With the help of sedatives, the cavities will be filled before you know it!
