For some people, the dentist’s office can be a scary place, especially if your teeth hurt or if it has been a long time since you have been to the dentist. Dr. Avrit knows that, and he offers three different levels of sedation to make your trips to the dentist as easy and stress-free as possible.
Mild Sedation with Nitrous Oxide
The first level is nitrous oxide, which is also known as laughing gas. When you inhale the gas, it calms your nerves down significantly. Another benefit of nitrous is that when it is removed, you go back to feeling normal, and you can drive yourself home.
Oral Sedation for Greater Relaxation
The second option is oral sedation, which is a series of pills that you take leading up to your appointment. This option significantly decreases your anxiety level and can also lead to some memory loss about your visit.
IV Sedation for Deep Anxiety and Longer Procedures
The third option is IV sedation, which Dr. Avrit frequently uses when he takes out wisdom teeth or extremely nervous patients. You should choose this option if you absolutely do not want to remember anything about your visit.
If you elect for the second or third option, you will be required to have someone bring you and take you home because you will still feel the effects after your appointment is over. Feel free to contact Dr. Avrit if you want one of these options for your appointment.
