For some patients even walking by a dental office can make them feel weak and anxious. Whether it was a bad childhood experience or the sights, sounds, and smells of a dental office, these patients often avoid the dental care they need.
Dr. Oyangen is certified by New York State to provide oral conscious sedation dentistry to anxious patients within the Saratoga and Schenectady, New York area.
• Anyone who has fears or anxiety about going to the dentist
• Anyone who has let anxiety allow them to put off dental care
• Anyone who needs extensive dental care done in one day
Oral Conscious sedation is achieved by the combination of orally administered medications and nitrous oxide. When undergoing conscious sedation, you are in a minimally depressed state of consciousness but can still maintain an open airway and answer appropriately to physical and verbal stimulus. During the procedure, your anxiety is nearly eliminated. If a patient chooses sedation dentistry, in most cases the patient will not remember much about their treatment and feel extremely relaxed and stress-free.
We also offer Nitrous Oxide for those patients with some dental anxiety or who are less anxious about dental work being performed. When using Nitrous Oxide it only takes a few minutes to reach a comfortable anxiety free state. Since its effects are so quick to wear off, you are safe to drive shortly after your dental procedure is finished.
Prior to undergoing any form of oral conscious sedation, we will review with you the guidelines and recommendations regarding your individual case.
