“I have avoided going to the Dentist for over 10 years. I had an emergency toothache and could not stay away any longer. The people at BDC treated me so kindly; they understood my anxiety and offered me sedation dentistry. It was the best thing I ever did! I now look forward to going to the office and I don’t need to be sedated any more!” – James D, W.Babylon

Below are three different sedation options that are available for our patients:
We offer this form of sedation complimentary to all of our patients.
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.
Oral Conscious Sedation
The pill is taken an hour before the procedure and additional medication can be given throughout the procedure as needed to obtain a level of sedation that will allow dental procedures to be performed in perfect comfort. Because of the amnesiac properties of the medication, there is little or no memory of the visit. We can maintain a good level of sedation for many hours, allowing us to correct significant dental problems in as little as one visit.
IV sedation dentistry is a method of performing dental treatments while a patient is in a relaxed state due to anesthesia administered directly into the bloodstream by a board-certified anesthesiologist.
During your initial visit we will be more than happy to discuss which of the above options specifically meets your needs.
