Is Sedation Necessary During Gum Disease Treatment?
Posted on 7/7/2020 by Todd Jorgenson
Is Sedation Necessary During Gum Disease Treatment?Having your gums treated for gum disease is necessary if your periodontitis has advanced beyond a certain point. What's more, depending on the facts of your situation, the treatment might even be invasive. When we treat a patient who requires this kind of care, we often use sedation. However, many of our patients have expressed a concern about sedation, so we thought this would be a good time to talk about what is—and is not—necessary when you are being treated for gum disease.

Gum Disease Treatment for Early Gum Disease


If your gum disease is only in the beginning stages, treatment will often consist of a very thorough cleaning—but no surgery. We use a procedure called scaling and planing to clean your teeth below the gum line.
During these kinds of procedures, you may experience some slight discomfort. However, it is typically not very strong, and does not last very long. We may use a mild numbing agent on your gum tissue if the discomfort is too much; however, you will not usually need to be sedated.

Gum Disease Treatment for Advanced Gum Disease


If your gum disease is advanced, you may be looking at much more invasive forms of treatment. These can include tissue grafts and, in extreme cases, possibly even bone grafts. Because these treatments can be quite uncomfortable, sedation is going to be necessary.
We know that the prospect of sedation can be frightening. However, keep in mind that we have been treating cases just like yours for a long time. We are able to quickly and effectively treat your gum disease using the latest techniques and procedures.
If you are suffering from gum disease, come see us. We'll be happy to sit down with you, review your case, and explain your options to you.
