IV Sedation

With IV Sedation, Dental Anxiety Needn’t Undermine Your Health

If you’re one of those people with severe dental anxiety, you’re in good company. It’s a common phobia, even among patients who’ve never had a negative experience at a dentist office. Dental anxiety has significant downsides. Minor dental health issues can grow into major ones. What’s worse, unchecked dental issues have been connected with serious systemic health complications, including cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and problematic pregnancies. Whether your fear is about pain, how long a particular procedure will keep you in the chair, or what a procedure you’re having for the first time will be like, count on us to keep you calm and comfortable before and during any treatment you receive here in our Wantagh, NY office. With extensive experience, our three board-certified periodontists can produce excellent, predictable results for any treatment we provide.

What Is IV Sedation?

Though all kinds of sedation and anesthesia provide relief from pain and anxiety, IV sedation can be particularly effective in helping you overcome your dental anxiety. This is because it delivers powerful, dependable pain control during procedures while making you unaware that you’re even undergoing treatment—even though you are technically awake. You won’t even remember the procedure once it’s over. Due to its potency, IV sedation is especially beneficial during lengthy or complex procedures. The team here at South Shore Long Island Periodontics & Implantology works with a Wantagh, NY-area anesthesiologist, a specialist who’s extensively trained in administering IV sedation to keep you calm and pain-free.
