Sedation Dentistry Oakland Gardens

Sleep Dentistry for dental anxiety

Dental anxiety is not uncommon. Many patients experience a slight sense of nervousness when it is time to visit the dentist. However, dental phobia goes beyond mild anxiety. If you suffer from this condition, you may experience severe symptoms of stress, including elevated heart rate, increased blood pressure, nausea, insomnia, and even panic attacks.

Dental phobia can be a major obstacle to overcome for patients in need of dental care. Unfortunately, this anxiety may prevent them from going to the dentist for even the most simple, routine procedures. To help patients who suffer from dental phobia , our office offers sedation option.

In addition to Nitrous Oxide, Dr. Svetcov also offers IV sedation and oral sedation. These stronger options can induce a “twilight sleep,” and they may be better choices if you suffer from extreme dental anxiety. Ultimately, scheduling a consultation with Dr. Svetcov is the best way to determine the optimal type of sedation for you. He will explain your options and help you select the right type of sedation to meet your needs. Dr. Svetcov can help you enjoy easier, more relaxing treatment than you may have imagined possible.
