If your dentist has recommended that you have your wisdom teeth removed, don’t worry! The procedure is no scarier than any other oral treatment done at Olive Tree. If you are nervous about visiting the dentist for the extraction, we offer various services and procedures, including sedation, to ensure you feel comfortable. We also offer laughing gas or nitrous oxide to help you relax during the procedure. Our experienced team has helped many patients with wisdom teeth extractions and performed different types of extractions with various levels of sedation.
For some people, dental treatments can trigger severe anxiety. The sight of dental tools alone can make them feel scared and apprehensive. Local anesthesia is often insufficient to calm them down. Dentists often choose sedation to manage the treatment processes for patients with dentophobia, or dental fear.
If you experience discomfort or pain in the posterior region of your mouth, we recommend seeking professional dental help without delay. If you feel worried or anxious about the extraction procedure, we recommend removing your wisdom and molar teeth under sedation, such as laughing gas or other methods. Our team will be able to remove your wisdom teeth with minimal discomfort.
Additionally, laughing gas has lower risks compared to other sedation methods. The side effects of laughing gas typically disappear once the mask is removed. Nitrous oxide sedation is suitable for all types of dental treatments, from routine teeth cleanings to more complex procedures like root canals.
