We understand that the dental office can be a scary place for many people. The problem with fear and anxiety is that if you put off much needed care when issues are small, they tend to only get bigger and more costly as time goes on. At TruYou Dental, we offer many different options to handle anxiety. Our sedation options include nitrous oxide, oral sedation and IV sedation. If you would like to learn more about your dental sedation options in the Great Neck, NY area, our dental team can help you determine the best recommendation for your upcoming visit. With dental sedation, you can sit back and relax as our team helps you work towards a better smile!
We offer the use of nitrous oxide, which does a great job at reducing anxiety and making you care a lot less about having dental work completed. Nitrous oxide is a common form of sedation that is even safe for children. Administered through a mask placed over the nose, the sedation begins to take effect within minutes. With no distractions from surrounding sounds or smells, you can feel comfortable through a routine exam or necessary treatment. Once the mask is removed, your sedation will begin to wear away, allowing you to resume your normal daily routine.
Another great option is the use of oral sedation with medications like Halcion, that can reduce anxiety and make you a bit sleepy and comfortable. You may not even remember your dental visit once your treatment is complete. Oral sedation allows your dentist to accomplish a lot in just one visit as you are at ease in the dental chair. This form of sedation does take some time to fully wear away, requiring you to bring a friend or family member to drive you home following your visit.
The ultimate in sleep dentistry is achieved when we partner with Advanced Dental Anesthesia. This group of dedicated, compassionate dental anesthesiologists are best-in-class, providing outstanding sleep dentistry care for our patients. They are available to provide IV sedation services so that you can go to sleep and then wake up with all your dentistry completed. If you have severe anxiety or are in need of much dental work, your dentist may recommend IV sedation.
