A Comfortable Procedure,
a Stunning Smile
Many people suffer from dental phobia or anxiety that affects their ability to receive proper oral care. If you get nervous, scared, or completely neglect going to the dentist, Dr. Stanislaus wants to put all your worries away.
When you visit Brooklyn Heights Dental for dental implants, we can provide you with sedation dentistry options to help you get through your procedure.
At your consultation, Dr. Stanislaus will discuss the use of nitrous oxide or intravenous sedation for your upcoming procedure so you can remain stress-free and comfortable throughout.

DUE TO DENTAL ANXIETY
Candidates for Sedation Dentistry
We want you to feel at ease throughout your entire implant procedure. You’re not the only one experiencing anxiety when thinking about the dentist, so we want to ensure your safety and comfort is put first in our Brooklyn office.
Whether you have anxiety, embarrassment, and claustrophobia, Dr. Stanislaus might also suggest sedation options to patients who:
- Experience rapid heartbeats and nausea waiting in a dental office
- Have had bad past experiences with the dentist
- Require multiple or more extensive treatments in one appointment
- Have a strong gag reflex
- Squirm from just the look or thought of dental tools
- Don’t feel the effects of numbing agents
If you have allergies or have any concerning health issues, please be sure to inform us so we can suggest the safest sedation option for you.
Nitrous oxide, also known as “laughing gas,” is one of the most subtle forms of sedation. It’s administered through a mask and works as you simply inhale it through your nose. You’ll begin to feel more relaxed as the effects begin to hit and you’ll feel little to no discomfort.
After your procedure is complete, the gas normally leaves your body fairly quickly, so you’ll most likely be able to drive yourself home.
Intravenous (IV) sedation is a much deeper form of sedation dentistry that we offer for your procedure. Safely inserted directly into your bloodstream, you’ll feel these effects right away.
During the procedure, you’ll likely fall asleep, but still be conscious where you can hear and answer questions if needed. You won’t feel much during your procedure and you’ll be at the greatest point of relaxation.
IV sedation may not leave your body instantly as nitrous oxide does, so we recommend you have a driver to take you home safely.
The Smile You Deserve,
the Comfort You Need
If you’ve been neglecting to repair your smile due to unfortunate damages, we encourage you to visit Brooklyn Heights Dental so we can discuss your necessary needs and ways we can calm your nerves.
Dr. Stanislaus believes every patient deserves a beautiful smile which is why we offer various sedation options to help you overcome your fear and achieve your smile goals.
