At River Oaks Dental, we understand that there are many types of patients. That’s why we offer you two great sedation options. If you’re nervous about your tooth extraction, we’ll help you decide which type of sedation will work best for your needs.
Inhaled sedation with laughing gas will alleviate mild to moderate dental anxiety. You’ll breathe in the gas through a comfortable mask, and almost immediately you’ll begin to feel relaxed all over. You will experience a mild euphoria throughout your treatment, but afterward you’ll feel like yourself in no time. You’ll be able to drive yourself home without any assistance.
For a deeper level of relaxation, you can opt for oral conscious sedation. Dr. Monteiro will prescribe a safe, FDA-approved pill for you to take ahead of time. By the time you’re seated in our dental chair, your mind will be completely at ease, and you may even feel a little groggy. Afterward, you may not remember much, if anything, about your procedure. The pill’s effects will take several hours to wear off, so you’ll need a trusted friend or family member to drive you home.
We go the extra mile to make sure your care is as pleasant as possible. At River Oaks Dental, you’ll have access to:
Plus, if you need to take a break during your procedure or have a special request (such as dimmed lighting), just let us know. We’ll do all we can to ensure that your time with us is relaxed and enjoyable.
Reasons you might need a tooth extraction include removing a damaged tooth or making room for new replacement teeth. Prior to your procedure, our team will take X-rays so that we can get a detailed look at your teeth roots, bone, and nerves.
These images, along with a thorough exam, will allow Dr. Monteiro to plan your treatment. We’ll go over your procedure in detail, taking time to give you answers to any questions you might have about extractions, sedation, aftercare, or anything else.
We’ll also discuss tooth replacement options with you. It is always best to replace a missing tooth so that your other teeth don’t shift positions and cause problems with your bite. Your tooth replacement options may include dental implants, bridges, implant-retained dentures, and implant-supported dentures.
After your extraction, you may need a bone graft to supplement the bone in the area where your tooth was. A bone graft can strengthen your jaw to prepare for an implant or help prevent bone loss if you won’t be replacing your tooth right away.
Jacksonville teeth extractions can get your smile back into shape! Call us today at 904-299-8951 to schedule your appointment.
