We also offer different sedation options to maximize patient comfort, as well as the cutting edge platelet-rich plasma therapy to expedite healing after oral surgery.When you come in for a consultation at our Missoula, MT, office, our team can explain the various benefits of the dental technology that we utilize. Gama and Morris can capture precise images and panoramic x-rays.Whatever the form of sedative, it is essential to be accompanied by a caregiver.Sometimes, sedatives are provided the night before the dental visit, which means that driving to or from the appointment is not advisable.First, be aware that a dog’s dental procedure is usually much more involved than ours.Most of us brush our teeth at least twice a day, but the overwhelming majority of dog owners scoff at the notion of brushing their pets’ teeth.
In other cases, patients may be unable to go through lengthy and complex procedures such as bone grafting or dental implants surgery due an inability to sit for long periods of time.
Sleepiness is a side effect of some medications, but nitrous oxide, oral conscious sedation and IV sedation only work to calm anxiety throughout the dental visit.
Sedation dentistry is popular because most sedatives can be taken by mouth, meaning no injections, no anxiety and no pain.
This advanced machine exposes patients to significantly less radiation exposure than traditional x-ray equipment while obtaining more detailed images.
These scans allow us to provide the most precise diagnoses and treatment planning.
People also rarely chew on rocks, tennis balls, and fences.
