Do not let your oral health suffer because of a fear of the dentist. One of the leading reasons patients give for poor oral health is dental anxiety. Dr. Bard Levey offers sedation dentistry for patients suffering from fear of the dentist.
Your oral health can impact your well-being, confidence, and health. Having healthy teeth and gums helps keep your entire body healthy and improve your quality of life. If you avoid visiting the dentist due to fear or anxiety, talk to Dr. Levey about your fears and concerns. Our compassionate and dedicated staff is here to help you. We want you to feel confident and comfortable in all of your oral health procedures so you can enjoy a lifetime of healthy, functional and beautiful smiles. In addition, we believe in education our patients on every treatment so they fully understand how it benefits their long-term health. We often find this helps ease anxiety all on its own.
Types of Sedation Dentistry
There are several types of sedation dentistry. Depending on your personal goals and health, Dr. Levey will help you choose a form of sedation dentistry that is right for you. Our Croton on Hudson, NY dentist office provides oral sedation nd nitrous oxide for the comfort of our patients.
Oral sedation: administered in pill form, oral sedation will enable you to be responsive and in control of your bodily functions while feeling completely relaxed throughout your procedure. This type of sedation may take several hours to completely wear off and patients will need to arrange for transportation after treatment.
Nitrous Oxide: “laughing gas” or nitrous oxide is administered via a small cannula placed over the nose. Inhaling the odorless gas will enable you to be responsive during your treatment, but feel completely calm and free of anxiety. One of the benefits of this type of sedation is that the effects immediately disappear when the cannula is removed, enabling patients to drive themselves home after their procedure.
