Frequently Asked Questions

Sedation Dentistry Options in 55424

We never want fear to deter you from getting the high-quality dentistry you need. For this reason, we offer two convenient options for dental sedation.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a breathable gas administered through a mask worn during your procedure. It works quickly to help you relax and feel at ease, and it leaves your system as soon as the mask is removed. This means you'll be able to drive yourself home and resume your normal activities. Nitrous can be used for any type of procedure, and it's also safe for children.

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation offers a deeper sedation that allows us to complete multiple treatment procedures at one time if necessary. It's administered through a pill taken one hour prior to your treatment, and while you'll still remain conscious and responsive, you'll feel totally relaxed, have little to no memory of your appointment, and may even feel like you were asleep. Due to the nature of the medication, you'll need to find transportation to and from your appointment, and you should plan to rest and relax after your procedure.

Woman holding hand infront of face | Dentist Edina MNE-cigarettes, or e-cigs, are often touted as devices to help smokers quit or reduce their tobacco intake; however, the question still remains – are they harmful to your oral health?

Here are some thoughts on e-cigs from your dentist in Edina, MN.

What Are E-cigs?

E-cigs are essentially a battery-powered device that delivers an aerosol comprised of a diluent, flavorings, and nicotine. The devices don't produce smoke, but rather a vapor that is inhaled by the user.

This seems like it would be a great alternative to cigarettes containing tobacco; however, there aren't any clinical studies completed on the effects of e-cigs so consumers don't understand the risks that might be associated with this product.

The Effects of Nicotine

Nicotine does have an impact on the health of your gums, and if you are using e-cigs you may want to increase checkups with your dentist to every three months because nicotine can also mask the symptoms of gum disease since it reduces bleeding. It has also been known to increase clenching and grinding of your teeth because it's a stimulant. Additionally, nicotine inhibits the production of saliva, which increases your risk of developing dry mouth and bad breath.

If you're using e-cigs to help you reduce or quit smoking, we're happy to discuss ways you can protect your oral health during this time.

Woman staring out windowIt is very important to keep seeing your dentist when you are diagnosed with cancer.  Many oncologists want cancer patients assessed prior to cancer treatment to make sure there are no infections or abscesses.  If a tooth needs to be removed after cancer treatment, it can cause issues including osteonecrosis (a bone infection), so it is important to assess these issues prior to treatment.  In addition, many cancer treatments can contribute to a dry mouth (lack of sufficient saliva) which can lead to cavities.
