Does the sound of a dental drill set you on edge? Are you constantly nervous about setting up a dental appointment, even for a simple and routine cleaning and examination? Dental anxiety can be a problem for many of us, no matter how old you may be or how many times you have or haven’t visited your local doctor to insure your smile is in perfect health. However, your fear of the dentist is nothing to be ashamed of, nor should it stop you from receiving the care you need. Whether you suffer from an illness which makes it difficult to sit still for any amount of time, or suffer from dental-related anxiety, you can find the care you need from your Bay Ridge sedation dentist at the offices of Gary Herskovits, DDS.
Dental health care is important at every age, regardless of whether or not you have a mental condition or other difficulties in visiting the dentist. Fortunately, our state of the art offices are always available with varying degrees of sedation dentistry to provide the ideal level of relaxation to suit your unique needs. Nitrous oxide or laughing gas can be the ideal dose for those who are experiencing anxiety about simple dental treatments which although not causing any level of pain, can still cause a great level of problems to your mental state. This level of sedation is the mildest form, can take effect immediately, and is also the easiest to control by your doctor. Nitrous oxide is also the only level of sedation that allows you to drive yourself home from your trusted Bay Ridge sedation dentist, allowing you to schedule your care at your own schedule. Laughing gas allows you to remain conscious while you are having your treatment done, so you are always in control, while allowing your body to enter a state of perfect calm and relaxation. Deeper levels of sedation can also be achieved through the use of oral sedatives. This type of medication will be prescribed by your doctor prior to examine, as pills need to be taken usually one hour before your examination. As if with all other sedatives stronger than nitrous oxide, patients will need to arrange for transportation to and from their appointment.
