Can I have my dental work with Sedation? My teeth are in poor condition ...Visitor from NJ

Answer:
You definitely are able to have dental treatment done with sedation regardless of your medical conditions.

After consulting with your physician it can be determined whether an antibiotic regimen is necessary to protect your heart valve prosthesis and whether it is safe for you to alter your Warfarin dosages prior to treatment.

Depending upon those factors and dependant upon what dental procedures are necessary will determine what type of sedation and the location of where treatment can take place (i.e. in the dental office or in an outpatient surgicenter).

Most likely you will be able to have treatment done in a general dentistry office that provides sedation options.
