Types of Wisdom Tooth Removal Services

If you require wisdom tooth removal in Yuma, Dr. Lemmon offers surgical, routine, partial impaction, and complete impaction removal. 

Types of Sedation Available for Wisdom Tooth Removal in

Dr. Lemmon has various types of sedation options available, including IV sedation and nitrous oxide. 

A local anesthetic is an injection in your mouth that numbs the location where your tooth is. In addition to the local numbing agent, the dentist may give you nitrous oxide to relax you during the procedure.

Dr. Lemmon may prescribe an oral medication like a benzodiazepine such as triazolam to ease your anxiety and possibly induce sleep during your wisdom tooth removal.  

During IV sedation, the dentist numbs your mouth using a local anesthetic and then runs an IV line with a drug that makes you drowsy. It’s possible you’ll sleep through the entire procedure. 

Benefits of Wisdom Tooth Removal Using Sedation Dentistry

Depending on the type of sedation you and Dr. Lemmon decide on, you may sleep during the entire procedure, so you won’t even know what’s going on while it happens. 

If you choose to use nitrous oxide, you relax during the procedure, so you’re not so tense.
