A warm, welcoming atmosphere

When many patients hear “oral surgeon” or “extractions” they can’t help but worry. We do everything we can to alleviate your anxiety from designing our office to feel like home to offering nitrous oxide and oral sedation dentistry. If you’d like Dr. Ross to do your surgery while you are completely asleep, we are happy to arrange the procedure at a separate outpatient facility with a dental anesthesiologist.

about wisdom teeth extraction.

Wisdom teeth are the final set of permanent teeth patients get and can be found behind molars. Whether or not they erupt through the gum, they can crowd the jawbone causing other teeth to shift and altering a patient’s bite. They may put excessive pressure on surrounding teeth resulting in toothaches, jaw pain, and even damage to teeth with high frequency.

Our dentist will provide you with options for anesthesia before extracting wisdom teeth. Local anesthesia numbs the affected area where wisdom teeth are located so that patients won’t feel pain but remain conscious during the procedure. If you would prefer not to be awake, IV sedation can be administered at another facility with Dr. Ross or with one of our wonderful, local oral surgeons.

Oral sedation with an anxiolytic like Halcion can offer the best of both worlds. It can be as easy as taking a single pill in office to relax any anxieties, undergoing your surgical procedure, and then walking out the door afterwards. Often, patients don’t remember the procedure but have the benefit of enduring less medical risk from deeper sedation options. And at just $60 you can save a fortune from traditional IV sedation which can range up into the thousands of dollars.
