Dental Procedures and Safety

Although our dentist’s office in Warsaw is generally a safe place, some dental procedures are complex. Complicated medical procedures always have the potential for side effects, whether they take place at your dentist, a hospital, or a doctor’s office. Because of this, patient safety is always a top priority. There are many ways our dental team keeps you safe and a few ways you can help them with this essential task.

The Importance of Physical Examinations

You’ll receive a brief physical examination of your teeth, mouth, and gums before most dental work is done. A physical exam will look for broken teeth, decay, cuts, sores, and other issues to see if your mouth is healthy enough for the planned procedure.

Revealing Your Full Medical History

Revealing your complete medical history is essential to staying safe. We won’t judge you for certain lifestyle choices and will make you feel comfortable regardless. We’re also bound by law not to disclose personal health information.

Certain procedures (especially those requiring anesthesia) may not be safe for some people. In other cases, certain lifestyle choices or health problems may require additional monitoring during the procedure.

Minimizing Allergic Reactions

Allergic reactions range from mild to life-threatening. Your dentist at Warsaw Family Dentistry will want to know if you’re allergic to latex or any medications, or if you’ve had a reaction to any anesthesia in the past.

Sanitation

All the tools used at our office are thoroughly sanitized between uses to prevent the spread of germs and diseases. Certain tools and items are used only once. Our dentist and staff wash their hands thoroughly between patients and between procedural steps as necessary.

Following Instructions

You will always be given care instructions to follow after leaving our office. You must follow these instructions exactly. This is especially important if you’ve undergone any surgical procedure, like wisdom teeth removal or dental implant placement. The care instructions will help minimize the risk of complications such as infection, excess bleeding, and dry socket, among others.
