At National Dental Oakland Gardens, our Flushing oral surgery specialists provide a variety of treatments, including, extractions, gum surgery, bone grafts, and more. We also offer IV sedation to ensure patients are comfortable while they are under our care. Read on to find out what your oral surgeon in Bayside can do for you.
As dental professionals, we are excited about saving teeth, and we do everything in our power to do so. Unfortunately, in some cases, an extraction is necessary. For example, if a tooth is too damaged, a good long-term prognosis is usually not likely. Additionally, an infected tooth can eventually begin to affect adjacent teeth if the problem is not addressed. Therefore, there are times when an extraction is the best solution for your oral health. If you do need an extraction, not to worry. Your oral surgeon in Bayside can help you determine an appropriate replacement option for your situation.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
One type of extraction we almost always recommend is the removal of wisdom teeth. Referred to as third molars, these teeth do not serve a purpose today. In fact, most wisdom teeth grow in at strange angles or become impacted in the jaw. This can lead to more serious complications, such as decay, gum disease, abscesses, and more. Therefore, most dentists agree that wisdom teeth should be removed, ideally when patients are in their late teens or early twenties. >> Learn more about wisdom teeth
About Laser Dentistry
Every procedure we perform at National Dental utilizes the latest in advanced technology. That is why our doctors are proponents of laser dentistry, which can be used for both hard and soft tissue treatments. Laser dentistry is advantageous for a couple of reasons. First, it allows your doctor to perform procedures with incredible accuracy and precision. Secondly, it reduces the amount of bleeding during oral surgery treatment. In turn, this means less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort during the recovery period as well. >>Learn more about laser dentistry
Reduce Dental Anxiety with IV Sedation
Do you have trouble sleeping the night before a dental visit? Do you feel emotionally overwhelmed or physically sick at the thought of undergoing treatment? Does having a dental procedure performed make you feel claustrophobic or out of control? If so, you are not alone. Millions of Americans suffer from dental anxiety. In fact, some even skip dental appointments altogether as a result. At National Dental Oakland Gardens, we provide IV sedation to help patients relax during their treatment. Before your procedure begins, your doctor will deliver sedative medications intravenously for an immediate effect. During your visit, the dosage will be adjusted continuously to keep you in a state of relaxation. Generally, patients remain carefree and comfortable, and most sleep through the procedure. IV sedation temporarily impedes motor skills and cognitive function. Therefore, if you choose this option, a responsible driver will need to accompany you to our office. >> Learn more about IV Sedation
