What is it about a dental visit that causes a person to bury their head in the sand like an ostrich? There are a variety of different things that contribute to these feelings, but usually, pain and discomfort are at the forefront. New techniques and advancements in the industry have made procedures less invasive, and far more comfortable than ever before. These ideals are commonly a direct result of a previous bad experience, with another D.D.S., and our staff works diligently to change these viewpoints one smile at a time.
Another reason people avoid the dentist is from fear of judgment. They are afraid that unpleasant statements or comments will be made about the current state of their oral health. We do not discriminate against anyone and treat everyone with the utmost respect. Our team always has the patient’s best interests in mind, and we look forward to the opportunity to show you why so many families entrust us with their cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry needs. All you have to do is take the giant leap of showing up, while our team shows you compassion and support every step of the way.
The moment a Long Island resident walks through our door; they gain an understanding of what sets our practice apart from others. Our team is friendly and courteous, but most importantly, they have the experience and ability to handle your individual and family dental needs. The entire office atmosphere is cozy and comfy but remains professional as well. However, the environment is not enough to ease the anxiety and stress levels of some patients. Our sedation dentist makes it possible for these folks to receive the care that they need, with little or no recollection of the events at all.
Patients remain awake enough to answer questions that might arise, but stay virtually unaware of their surroundings. In many cases, the sedation dentist can complete extensive amounts of work in a single visit. Sometimes this value equals up to a year’s worth of procedures, but the treatment is not reserved for only more significant cases. For appointments that are not as invasive, the level of sedation is controlled to lessen the effects. The process is safe, but patients will need to have a driver to take them home, regardless of the amount of work performed. The health, safety, and well-being of our patients is always our top priority. Keep practicing good oral hygiene, and just know that we are here to help, whenever you are ready to take the huge leap of visiting a dentist.
