Iv sedation or not in preparation for my first dental implant to replace tooth #2 that is not mobile yet but with some degree of a furcation.?
No IV needed. There is no need for IV sedation for the placement of an implant. The use of local anesthesia should make the procedure painless. If you are a little nervous, you may want to consider asking your dentist for an anti-anxiety medication. If what describe about the condition of #2, you may actually need a bone graft first to create enough bone volume for the implant. Talk to your dentist & good luck.
It depends... You can best answer this question. Do you use IV sedation for extraction or root canal procedures or any other dental procedure? Do you usually have a need for nitrous oxide for dental treatment? If so, then IV sedation may be a great option. If you never have much anxiety with medical or dental procedures you may not need IV sedation at all.... Please discuss with your implant surgeon.
Depends. Iv sedation depends on your anxiety levels. If your molar is not mobile depending on the degree of fur cation there are some bone regenerative techniques that your dentist or periodontist should discuss with you and whether you qualify for them. If it is a severe fraction involvement then a dental implant would be your best option.
Not needed by most. Most patients do well with local anesthesia. If you do ok having a filling with local, you should be fine. Get it done soon before you lose more bone. Good luck.
IV sedation. While it may not seem so, this is a "technique sensitive" operative procedure in a relatively inaccessible area and involves noxious stimuli like the injections themselves, deep pressure, vibrations. The extraction is complicated, the implant site requires careful maintenance, and with immediate implant placement) IV sedation is the method of choice. Most folks (only if given the option) take it.
Consider sedation. Sedation will make the entire process easier assuming that you are in good health. Often a drill will be required to split the tooth in pieces.
Swollen, inflamed gum. Gingivitis is a condition of gum inflammation, and thus tends to bleed. It is treated by a good cleaning and good home care.
Not really. Your gum tends to bleed during pregnancy because the break down product of estrogen (its level surge during pregnancy) is estradiol, which is a growth factor for bacteria. This condition is called pregnancy gingivitis. However, gum bleeding does not indicate possibility of pregnance and should not be used as the criteria. Gum bleeding, by definition is gingivitis, and used to measure your periodontal health.
Treated the bone loss. A through and through furcation is hard to treat, but if it is not through the other side, bone grafting can be done to save the tooth. Make sure the cause of the furcation involvement is solved (occlusion) to ensure the successful treatment.
Not necessary. I.V. Sedation should be used only for the very anxious individual. Cost, complications and safety, recovery are all issues with sedation. If you can manage other dental procedures then you should be fine. You could ask for less expensive nitrous oxide.
Discuss with dentist. This is a problem that requires a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. In that meeting, your doctor will listen to you, perform a throrough examination and possibly order labs or other tests. Based on this information, he/she will be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.
