We know having dental work done may not be the most relaxing experience. For many, dental work actually incites anxiety. It is for this reason that here at Advantage Dentistry of Kenmore, NY, we offer several options for sedation. We aim for all of our patients to have a comfortable and pleasant visit with us.
Whether you are having major dental work performed or a simple cavity filled, we want to be sure our patients do not experience any anxiety or fear during the process. We have several options for sedation that will allow any nervousness to disappear. The procedure will seem to go by quicker as you drift into ease.
Oral conscious sedation relaxes you but it allows you to remain conscious during the procedure. You may not remember part of all of the procedure afterwards. It is in the form of a pill and the effects may last beyond the procedure, so you will need someone to drive you home.
Anxiolysis is another pill form of sedation, but it is lighter than oral conscious sedation. You will be able to drive yourself home afterwards. It is another relaxant that will put you at ease but keep you awake.
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas as many call it, is our lightest form of sedation. It is breathed in through a gas and will again ease any tense feelings but allow you to remain awake. Nitrous oxide wears off quickly; you will be able to drive yourself home afterwards.
If nervous feelings have been keeping you away from the dentist, ask about our sedation options for your next visit. To contact Advantage Dentistry of Kenmore, NY, give us a call at (716) 877-2275 or visit our website, www.advantagedentistry.com.
