Your First Visit: What To Expect

Sedation Dentistry Image

Does the thought of a visit to the dentist's office make you a little anxious? If you suffer from dental anxiety, you are not alone. Nearly 40 million Americans have some level of dental phobia.

Luckily for our Rockville Centre dental patients, Dr. Anthony Russo, Dr. Shoukry and our team at South Nassau Dental Arts offer sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry allows our patients to become fully relaxed for the duration of their time in the treatment chair, feeling little or no discomfort.

Experiencing Dental Anxiety Before Your 1st Exam? Don't Sweat It. We're Here For You.

Many people avoid visiting the dentist for a general dentistry appointment or bi-annual checkup because they associate fear and discomfort with the sights, sounds, and smells of the dentist's office. Even more patients avoid restorative dental repairs such as dental crowns or creating their dream smile with cosmetic dentistry solutions because of dental anxiety. Patients who suffer from dental anxiety often face a number of issues when they finally make it to the dentist's office, and may require extensive maintenance or repairs. With sedation dentistry, our dentists in Rockville Centre can perform multiple procedures in one comfortable visit while the patient reclines in a state of total relaxation.

What to Expect with Sedation Dentistry

Patients who undergo sedation before a dental procedure are not actually asleep and are able to respond to questions from our dentists when necessary. Patients are monitored by a member of the South Nassau Dental Arts team to ensure that their sedation is successful and also to make sure that they experience little or no discomfort. Many of our patients comment after their sedation dentistry session that they feel more relaxed than before they came into the office.
