Why Consider Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation Dentistry Services

Oral Sedation

This kind of sedation is taken orally, typically one hour before your visit. Many patients experience a decrease in dental anxiety and discomfort with the degree of effects depending on what medication is prescribed and at what dosage.

Nitrous Oxide

Often called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask prior to treatment. You’ll stay alert and awake but feel relaxed throughout your procedure. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly once your mask is removed.

IV Sedation

Administered intravenously, this type of sedation puts you in a sleep-like state, though you will remain awake during your procedure. With amnesic effects, many patients who receive IV sedation may forget parts of their care or the entirety of their treatment. With some lasting effects, patients will need someone to drive them home after their visit.

The Dangers of Dental Anxiety

If you’re afraid of dental visits, you may decide to skip them and ignore dental symptoms that should receive attention. The associated risks are considerable, since small dental health issues that go unchecked can eventually turn into big ones. In these instances, the end result can be a far more serious condition than you would’ve had if you’d pursued treatment earlier. Gum disease can cause gum recession and tooth loss. If left untreated this can lead to additional systemic complications, more pain, and more treatments. With all of our options for sedation dentistry in Plainview & Hicksville, NY, this need never happen to you. Reach out and learn more about how our specialized and comprehensive sedation solutions can offer the comfort and confidence you need for a healthy smile and a healthy life.
