Dental Implants Under Anesthesia
Do you want to have a beautiful smile, but hate going to the dentist? You’re not alone. We understand that many people have genuine dental anxiety and are afraid to go to the dentist.
At our periodontal office on Long Island, we cater to cowards. That’s why we want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the dental care you need to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are a natural-looking, long-lasting solution to missing teeth. They replace the roots of the tooth and are capped with a crown, a bridge, or a denture. Whether you are missing a single tooth, several teeth, or an entire row of teeth, we can give you a beautiful, new smile while you’re asleep.
Dental Implants with Sedation on Long Island
Our periodontist in Huntington places dental implants in a safe and comfortable manner. Our team is skilled at both conscious sedation and unconscious sedation. During conscious sedation, the patient remains awake during the dental implant procedure. The periodontist numbs the area a local anesthetic such as novacaine and can use nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to help patients feel comfortable and relaxed during the procedure. If needed, the periodontist can prescribe an oral sedative such as Valium to help as well.
If you would prefer to be asleep during the dental implant procedure, we can arrange to have a board-certified anesthesiologist come to our Long Island office to administer I.V. sedation. The patient sleeps through the entire procedure and wakes up with no memory.
Who Should Get Dental Implants While Under Anesthesia?
There are many reasons why a person may choose to get dental implants under anesthesia. The best candidates for sleep dentistry include:
- people who fear going to the dentist
- people who want to get multiple procedures completed in one visit
- people with a severe gag reflex
- people with medical conditions that make it difficult to stay still in the dental chair
- people who hate the sounds and smells associates with the dental office
- people with very sensitive teeth
- people who want to have no memory of the procedure
- people who like the idea of waking up with a beautiful smile
What Are the Benefits to Getting Dental Implants While Asleep?
There are several benefits to getting dental implants while asleep at our Huntington, NY dental office. First, the patient has no memory of the procedure. Second, multiple procedures can be performed in a single dental visit.
While the patient is comfortable and asleep, our periodontal experts can extract any teeth as necessary, place the dental implants, and even place the crown, bridge, or denture on top. Frequently called “teeth in a day,” this type of procedure allows the patient to wake up with a beautiful, new smile.
All-on-4® Treatment Concept: Implant-Supported Denture
Our dental implant specialists create All-on-4® implant-supported dentures on patients with conscious sedation or unconscious sedation as well. All-on-4 treatment is a revolutionary concept that uses four Nobel Biocare implants to support a full row of teeth.
One of the most frequent complaints by people with dentures is that the dentures slip. All-on-4 treatment anchors the denture in place, creating a no-slip denture that allows them to eat, smile, sing, and do everything else they could do when they had a full set of healthy, natural teeth.
Imagine waking up with a full set of teeth again. That’s a reality at our periodontal office in Huntington, NY. We can arrange for a board-certified anesthesiologist with more than 15 years of experience to keep you safely and comfortably asleep while our experts give you the smile you desire. READ MORE
