Is going to the dentist always stressful for you no matter what kind of treatment you need? Has this anxiety caused you to cancel appointments or miss out on much-needed care for years? We completely understand, and we’re ready to help you finally relax with our sedation options. From routine cleanings to advanced restorative care, we can use sedation dentistry in our Mineola, NY dental office to make any appointment fly by, so that at the end, your only thought is, “That’s it?”
Nitrous oxide sedation has been widely used for over a hundred years, and it’s perfect for patients who need just a little help getting through their dental visits. The odorless gas is mixed with oxygen and administered using a small mask placed over the nose. After a few deep breaths, a patient will feel calm, warm, and happy from head to toe. And the effects of nitrous oxide go away moments after the mask is removed, meaning a patient can get straight back to their day following their appointment.
For patients with severe dental anxiety, or who require extensive care, IV sedation is the ideal option. A potent sedative is administered directly into the bloodstream, helping a patient become extremely relaxed within moments. Even better, we can adjust someone’s sedation level in real-time to ensure they feel completely comfortable moment to moment. IV sedation can also allow a patient to save time by enabling our team to complete multiple procedures during one well-planned visit.
