Sedation Dentistry in Mount Kisco, New York

Do you suffer from dental anxiety? Dr. Calian may recommend sedation during your next visit to help you relax.

Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry refers to the use of a range of sedation options during dental procedures. We use sedation to help our patients relax and feel at ease during treatment. Sedation can be safely combined with local anesthesia for a more comfortable and pain-free dental care experience.

How is Sedation Dentistry Used?

At Smile Design Dental Spa, we offer the following sedation methods depending on your treatment needs:

  1. Laughing Gas: An inhaled minimal sedation method that is administered through a small mask placed over the nose. The gas induces a state of ease and relaxation. Laughing gas is safe for patients of all ages, and is commonly used to help children feel more comfortable.
  2. Oral Sedation: Administered as a pill or liquid, this sedation method puts patients in a state of relaxation. Patients often become drowsy but remain conscious throughout the procedure.
  3. IV Sedation: Intravenous (IV) sedation administers the medication through a vein. This allows it to go into effect more quickly and to be carefully monitored and adjusted throughout the procedure.
  4. General Anesthesia: General anesthesia is administered at a hospital during oral surgery procedures. It puts the patient under for the duration of their procedure and must be administered and monitored by a trained anesthesiologist.

Am I a Candidate For Sedation Dentistry?

Dr. Calian recommends sedation for patients who experience dental anxiety. Fear of the dentist can prevent patients from seeking the dental care they need to achieve optimal oral health. It can also be used to help patients with other barriers to treatment, including:

Physical or cognitive disabilities that prevent patients from sitting, relaxing, or complying with the dentist’s instructions

If you think you are a candidate for sedation, call Smile Design Dental Spa to schedule an appointment with Dr. Calian. Our dentist will gladly discuss your needs, questions, and concerns.
