When a tooth is severely damaged or causing major problems for other teeth, the most effective option may be to remove it entirely. By doing this, we can ensure that the best possible long-term outcome for the patient can be achieved. Most patients who receive a tooth extraction experience minimal, if any, pain during the process. The tooth in the very back of your mouth is known as a wisdom tooth, and for many people these teeth cannot grow and become impacted, or stuck, in the gum. This situation is serious, as it’s possible to get an infection, resulting in tremendous pain. Having the tooth (or teeth) extracted by a dentist is the only solution. visit us at Bensonhurst Dental Arts for so our highly trained dentist can help you.
This “dental phobia” prevents people from receiving necessary routine dental care, potentially compromising the health and functionality of the mouth and smile. Oral sedation, also known as pill sedation, is one of the three sedation methods dentists use to help calm patients down during dental procedures. Patients take the sedative in the form of a pill in the hours leading up to the appointment. The oral sedative is a type of Benzodiazepine, which decreases activity in the parts of the brain that control fear and anxiety. The result is a very relaxed and calm mood that will allow your dentist to effectively do what they’re supposed to. If you experience “dental phobia”, Bensonhurst Dental Arts is here to help you!
