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

Dr. Marcus patiently waited over an hour for me to get numb and took care of a badly infected tooth that had me in misery for three days. The pain is gone now and I have my tooth. Thanks a million, Dr. Marcus, to you and your staff!

Dr. Marcus is amazing! When I needed emergency root canal over the Christmas holiday, he not only made sure to get me on the calendar immediately, but treated me as if I was one of his own patients. I live in Philadelphia and was told by my local dentist that I was SOL as they were closed for the holiday (without coverage). I’d tried calling several other oral surgeons, but none of them would se…

I have been a patient of Rick Marcus for a number of years and have always found him to be outstanding. He works practically without any discomfort with root canals and is always using the latest proven techniques. He is highly skilled and has a perfect touch. Today I had a periodontal cleaning with a new hygienist named Julie and that too was an excellent experience. This is an office that consis…

Dr. Marcus made my daughter’s root canal experience one that she will remember in a positive way. In fact, she laughed and smiled through the experience instead of having the fear that she usually has. Not only was Dr. Marcus amazing but his staff was as well. They spent an extra hour helping me through an insurance issue! I highly recommend using Dr. Marcus for your child or yourself!!

This is a wonderful office. Dr Marcus got to the root (just a small pun intended!) of two problems in the summer of 2015. He is an amazing endodontist and did everything he could to make me a pain free person.

Dr Marcus and his staff are absolutely amazing. Needed to get my 8 year old daughter in for a broken tooth. They were more then accommodating. They were able to give me an appointment the same day. Dr Marcus made my daughter laugh and made her feel at ease. Absolutely wonderful doctor. The staff from the front desk girls to the MA were amazing. Highly recommend this office.

Could not say enough about how professional both Dr. Marcus and his staff are. I had a pretty painful tooth issue that my normal dentist immediately assessed would need a root canal back in April. I quickly made an appointment with Dr. Marcus. I was treated amazingly by both the staff setting me up, the assistant in the room helping Dr . Marcus and most importantly, the skill and compassion from D…
