IV Sedation in Coquitlam

Where once there might have been the fear of pain associated with tooth extractions, now at our IV sedation Coquitlam office, you can undergo your treatments with the comfort of general anesthetic or even a local anesthetic injected into the area where your tooth is to be extracted. Whichever you choose, your Coquitlam dentists at our Tri-City office are sure to put you at ease.

Extracting Teeth

Once you are comfortable in whichever method of sedation or local anesthetic you choose, your tooth will be carefully extracted. This leaves, of course, an empty socket, where a piece of gauze will be placed within that you will bite down on to ensure that a blood clot forms accordingly. It often requires a change in gauze a few times throughout the day and into the evening, but minimal blood loss usually occurs with a tooth extraction.

Sometimes your dental professional will put a few self-dissolving stitches in the space to close the gum, but depending on the size of the tooth extraction, often it is left to heal on it’s own.

Periodontal disease or extensive dental decay is one of the main reasons why multiple tooth extractions are conducted in this day and age of modern dentistry, but on occasion, it is necessary for other reasons also – which we will discuss in our next blog post.

Periodontal Disease Explained

Periodontal disease is when there is extensive bone loss surrounding the teeth, and the teeth become loose and unstable. Due to this, the gums trap food and tend to stay inflamed and infected due to this.

Although no one wants to lose their real teeth, sometimes removing them is beneficial as chronic dental infections can be the source of heart attacks, strokes and many other medical problems.
