Experience a Comfortable Tooth Extraction
Dr. Williams will examine you with digital X-rays and other equipment to determine whether you need an extraction. Then he will:
- Numb your mouth with local anesthesia so you won’t feel a thing during the procedure
- Administer dental sedation if you decide to receive it
- Offer you amenities like a pillow and blanket to help you relax
- Remove the tooth or teeth as gently as possible
- Provide you with instructions on how to care for your extraction site
Choose the Right Sedation for Your Oral Surgery
Many people require no more than local anesthesia to stay comfortable throughout their extraction. If you are still nervous or worried about pain, though, we can also provide sedation. You can choose:
- Inhaled Sedation – Also called laughing gas, you inhale this mild and fact-acting sedation through a small mask worn over your noise. It wears off without leaving you groggy, so you can drive yourself home.
- Oral Sedation – For a deeper level of relaxation, you can take a prescription pill.
- IV Sedation – A licensed anesthesiologist intravenously administers this sedation. You’ll relax so deeply you may not remember anything about your procedure when it’s over.
