Sedation Dentistry in Brewster, NY
At Putnam Dental Associates – A Dental365 Company, we know that for some patients, a visit to the dentist can cause anxiety. For others, health conditions such as arthritis can make it very uncomfortable to sit in the dentist’s chair for extended periods of time. That is why we provide our patients with the best options available in sedation dentistry. Your dentist can review your medical history and help you decide which sedation option is best for you. We want your dental experience at Putnam Dental to be as calm and comfortable as possible.
This mild sedative, also known as “laughing gas,” is easily administered through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax.
Intravenous sedation is a moderate sedative administered through direct injection into the bloodstream. This sedation is immediate, and in most cases, it will make you feel as though you’ve slept through the entire procedure.
If you have a moderate to severe need for sedation, oral medications may be a great choice for you. We offer several different types of oral sedation that are typically administered the night before or day of your procedure. In fact, with this option, you can be sedated for up to eight hours at a time.
