Relax and Get the Dental Care You Need
At Passes Dental Care, we understand that some people get anxiety when they think about going to the dentist office for a treatment, and that’s normal. Helping our patients attain a healthy smile in a comfortable environment is our priority. Therefore, whether you are visiting us for dental implants, a cavity filling or any of our other services, we offer sedation dentistry to make sure that you and all of our patients have a stress-free appointment.
If you experience anxiety when visiting the dentist, please let us know so that we are able to collect medical history, medications you are taking and additional lifestyle information. This will help our doctors determine the best solution for you. Based on the level of sedation, we will let you know what you can expect and if you need someone to drive you the day of your appointment.
Types of Sedation
Just as levels of anxiety vary from one patient to the next, so do the preferences for receiving sedation treatment. Our Great Neck dentists off three types of sedation:
- Oral Sedation – typically given orally to be swallowed or can be dissolved underneath the tongue. Medication can be taken before the procedure and patient will still be able to communicate with our dental team during the treatment.
- Inhalation Conscious Sedation – nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, that is inhaled through a small mask placed over your nose and can be used alone or with an anti-anxiety medication that is taken orally. You will not fall asleep after
being sedated, but will be relaxed throughout the entire procedure.
- IV Conscious Sedation – sedative is delivered directly into the bloodstream intravenously (through the vein). The level of sedation can be controlled and adjusted more quickly and easily.
Of the three, oral sedation is the most popular. However, IV sedation has the most immediate effect on the body.
