Why Consider Sedation?

There are a number of reasons why you should consider sedation dentistry. For one, it will help you have a positive dental experience. When you use sedation for your next visit, you will feel completely relaxed from start to finish. Don’t cancel your appointment, give sedation dentistry a try and we guarantee you won’t feel the need to reschedule again. Sedation dentistry takes all the anxiety you once felt away through the duration of your visit. The more relaxed you feel during your visit, the more positive you will feel about your experience. You can say hello to regular dental exams again and improved oral health overall. Why not give it a try?

Who Can Benefit From Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry can benefit most patients who are undergoing an invasive procedure or want to have multiple procedures in one visit. In addition, it most benefits the following patients:

  • Have a difficulty getting numb
  • Experience a strong gag reflex
  • Suffer from severe anxiety
  • Have a fear of the dentist
  • Have trouble sitting still

Sedation Dentistry Options

If you think sedation dentistry might help reduce your anxiety or make your dental visits more comfortable, we offer two sedation options for you to choose from. Oral sedation is a pill you take prior to your appointment. The medicine keeps you awake but you will feel completely relaxed. This option is ideal for patients with a strong gag reflex, or those who have heightened sensitivity. This treatment option may take a while to wear off so we ask that you arrange for a ride to and from your appointment.

Our second option is nitrous oxide also known as laughing gas. This option involves wearing a mask that gives you a combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide to inhale. The nitrous oxide works immediately and allows you to feel completely comfortable during your procedure. Once your treatment is over, we will remove the mask and the effects will wear off almost immediately so you can drive yourself home.

Our last option is completely drug-free and is known as NuCalm. This treatment uses a technique to shut down your body’s natural response to anxiety and allow you to enter a meditative-like state.

If you would like to have a better experience at the dentist, please don’t hesitate to call our Mohegan Lake dental office to ask for a form of sedation dentistry during your next visit. You can contact us to learn more or request an appointment.
