We even offer sedation for maximum comfort while you are under our care. If you are in need of an oral surgeon in Astoria, we invite you to visit our Sunnyside practice.
IV Sedation for Optimal Comfort and Relaxation
Do you become anxiety-ridden at the thought of visiting the dentist? Do you lose sleep the night before an appointment? Perhaps you even avoid dental visits due to excessive nervousness. Dental anxiety is real. With today’s advances, we can help patients relax throughout the duration of their treatment. No matter what type of oral surgery you need, we offer IV sedation to help you remain comfortable.
To administer this type of sedation, your doctor will place an IV port in your arm. This way, sedative medications can be delivered directly to the bloodstream for an immediate effect. Even better, the dosage can be adjusted throughout your treatment so that your level of comfort remains constant. Entering a state of “twilight sleep”, you will still be able to respond to our surgical team if necessary but will be extremely carefree and relaxed. Because sedatives interfere with your cognition and motor skills, a friend or family member will need to accompany you home following your appointment. >> Learn more about IV Sedation
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Today, most dentists agree that wisdom teeth should be removed as a preventative measure. Due to the harsh diets and poor dental hygiene of our ancient ancestors, they needed this extra set of molars to function properly. In fact, by the time these individuals reached their early twenties, they had already lost several teeth. Today, however, we are able to avert tooth loss through preventative care. Therefore, wisdom teeth are simply not necessary.
When wisdom teeth erupt, they often grow in sideways or become impacted in the jawbone. This can lead to a host of serious oral health problems, including decay, gum disease, overcrowding, and other forms of dental damage. At National Dental Sunnyside, our oral surgeons routinely remove wisdom teeth to help patients preserve their oral health for years to come. >> Learn more about wisdom teeth
At National Dental, patient comfort is our number one priority. Therefore, we always strive to stay up to date on the latest methods and technologies. Whenever possible, we use laser dentistry at our Sunnyside practice. Lasers can be used on hard tissue, such as teeth and bones, as well as soft tissue, such as your gums, cheeks, and lips. Dental lasers significantly reduce the noise and vibration associated with traditional dental drills. When used for soft tissue surgery, they cauterize as they incise, resulting in less bleeding during the procedure. As a result, patients can enjoy less bleeding, swelling, and discomfort during recovery as well. >>Learn more about laser dentistry
