IV Sedation - White Plains, NY & Mt Kisco, NYMost patients are not excited about the prospect of a root canal treatment in White Plains, NY and Mt. Kisco, NY. Today, our practice offers several options in our offices to assuage dental anxiety to make our patients feel relaxed and stress-free during any endodontic procedure. Drs. Kolnick, Diamond, Hope, and Chaudrhy want their patients to stop avoiding treatments due to anxiety. They can help with sedation dentistry options to make the experience more manageable. Ignoring a problem tooth that may need treatment can lead to even more serious complications. Instead, check out some of the sedation alternatives we can provide to our patients during your treatment.


Be Comfortable


Our goal is for our patients to feel comfortable during their root canal treatment. During the procedure, Dr. Kolnick will make an opening in the crown of your tooth to treat the inflamed soft tissue and remove the infected pulp. If you avoid treating the infection, you could develop a serious abscess, which causes even more pain. Instead, you may want to consider some of our sedation options.


Nitrous Oxide


One option we offer is nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. This is a popular sedative that dental patients choose. Patients do not have to worry about negative side effects of the sedative after treatment. Once the procedure is over, the sedation effects end.


Oral Medication


If you need something a little more powerful to feel calm during your treatment, your provider could prescribe an oral medication to you. You may need to have someone accompany you during your treatment so you do not have to drive home.


IV Sedation


The most powerful type of sedation we offer is IV sedation. With IV sedation, you will be given medication through your veins with an IV. This medication takes effect quickly and allows patients to relax and feel less anxiety during treatment.
