Sedation options at your tooth extraction appointment
We understand that tooth extraction procedures can be anxiety-inducing for some patients. That’s why we offer various sedation options to ensure your comfort and relaxation throughout your treatment.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Nitrous oxide, often referred to as “laughing gas,” is a safe and commonly used sedation method. It’s administered through a mask placed over your nose. This option provides a mild and calming effect, helping you feel more at ease during the procedure. After the procedure, the effects wear off rapidly, allowing you to resume your normal activities.
Oral sedation involves taking a prescribed sedative pill before your appointment, typically about an hour before the procedure. This option induces a moderate level of sedation, making you feel drowsy and relaxed. It’s suitable for individuals with mild to moderate anxiety or longer procedures.
At Sparks Precision Dental, your comfort and well-being are our top priorities. Our team will work with you to choose the most appropriate option based on your needs.
FAQs about tooth extractions
Is a tooth extraction painful?
At Sparks Precision Dental, we offer sedation options to numb the area, ensuring that you don’t feel pain during the procedure. After the extraction, there might be some discomfort, but it can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?
Most people recover from a tooth extraction within a few days. However, some people may experience pain and swelling for up to a week. Following our instructions carefully after the extraction is important to promote healing and prevent complications.
What can I eat after a tooth extraction?
Sticking to soft, cool foods that won’t irritate the extraction site is best. Options include yogurt, applesauce, mashed potatoes, and smoothies. Avoid hot, spicy, and crunchy foods for the first few days. As you heal, you can gradually reintroduce a regular diet, starting with softer foods and gradually moving to firmer options as advised by your dentist.
