Whether you need to have one tooth or multiple teeth extracted, it can always be done in a safe and comfortable setting. Local anesthesia is used in all cases, but it can be supplemented with various levels of conscious sedation, ranging from nitrous oxide and oral pre-medication to I.V. sedation or deeper conscious sedation (the latter being provided by a dental anesthesiologist). Your dentist will consult with Dr. Thornton both before and after your extractions to ensure the proper plan for replacement of your extracted teeth.
