I need to have 2 teeth extracted. My anxiety level for dental work is through the roof. I can't find anything on the internet about the safety and if it is even possible to have conscious sedation for the procedure. Of course I will ask my MD and consult with the dental surgeon first. I am amazed at the lack of education that MD's have on Suboxone and it scares me to death. I was in the ER recently for a diverticulitis attack. The pain was awlful. The MD perscribed 4mg Dilaudud IV. I told them don't bother, but they gave it to me anyway..of course it didn't work! Anyway, does anyone have any info regarding conscious sedation for dental procedures while on Suboxone?
i would say of course they can but you might have to stop taking it long enough that you feel uncomfortable for the sedation to work properly. it might not even matter. i have the same fears and am at a pain clinic on tons of high dose meds and my sedation didn't put me to sleep but i also could care less so i didn't argue that they cheaped out on the sedation meds cause they didn't want to use more than usual. good luck
