Which Procedures Call for Sedation Dentistry?, Anchorage, Alaska

One of the most important advancements in the field of dental care has been the development of sedation dentistry techniques. Through the careful, targeted use of medications, modern dentists can administer even the most extensive treatments while the patient remains calm and comfortable.At Family First Dentistry in Anchorage, Alaska, they offer sedation dentistry for restorative dentistry, dental surgery, and for patients with severe dental anxiety.

Restorative Dentistry

Sedation DentistryThis includes treatments such as root canals and fillings. In many of these treatments, the tooth structure must be altered to remove decay and accommodate dental prosthetics. To protect you from pain and discomfort, you may be administered an anesthetic, IV sedation, or nitrous oxide.

Oral Surgery

Many oral surgeries can be performed in-office, while others may require seeing a specialist. In any case, your dentist will discuss sedation dentistry options with you before teeth extractions and dental implant placements.

Emergency Procedures

If you're visiting an emergency dentist, chances are you're already experiencing tooth pain. To relieve the discomfort of tooth decay or breakage, you'll receive an anesthetic that’s appropriate for your needs. Your dentist may also prescribe pain relief medications when you leave the office.

Dental Anxiety

To allow you to get the care you need, Family First Dentistry offers oral sedation before your procedure, as well as nitrous oxide to relieve stress and promote comfort.
