A Comfortable Procedure,
a Stunning Smile
Dental phobia and anxiety is a growing issue for many people in America and many aren’t seeking proper dental care. Dr. Stanislaus wants to put all your worries away, especially for his patients who need dental implants, because he offers sedation dentistry. Brooklyn Dental Heights offers nitrous oxide and intravenous sedation to patients who are fearful, embarrassed, or claustrophobic.

DUE TO DENTAL ANXIETY
Candidates for Sedation Dentistry
We want you to feel at ease throughout your entire implant procedure. You are 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.
Along with anxiety, embarrassment, and claustrophobia, Dr. Stanislaus suggests 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
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 is also known as “laughing gas” and is known as the most conservative form of sedation. It is administered through a mask and you will simply inhale it through your nose. You will begin to feel more relaxed and possible euphoria throughout your procedure.
After your procedure is complete, the gas normally will leave your body, so you will most likely be able to drive yourself home.
Intravenous sedation is a much deeper form of sedation dentistry and will most likely be asleep, but still slightly conscious where you can still hear and answer questions if needed. You won’t feel much during your procedure and you’ll be completely relaxed.
IV sedation may not leave your body instantly as nitrous oxide does, so we recommend you have a driver to take you home.
