Sedation Dentistry - East Amherst, NY

Doing Our Part to Keep Patients Calm

Do any of the following descriptions sound familiar?

At Dr. Shannon McCarthy’s practice, she and her team members do everything in their power to create a stress-free, casual atmosphere where patients of all ages can feel at ease. However, if you’re a match for one or more of the above conditions, you may need a little extra help to feel comfortable. That’s where sedation dentistry comes in! These techniques are designed to relieve negative emotions and create a sense of genuine relaxation, allowing your treatment to go as smoothly as possible.

Why Choose Shannon H. McCarthy for Sedation Dentistry?

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is more commonly known as “laughing gas,” and it’s a great choice for patients who need just a little extra help with feeling comfortable in the dentist’s chair. Patients inhale the gas through a mask that fits over the nose, and once it’s removed, the effects go away within minutes. This means you can even drive yourself home from your appointment!

Oral Conscious Sedation

Oral conscious sedation is a type of sedation where patients are provided with a prescription and instructed to take it at a certain time before their appointment. Once the effects take hold, you should enter a deep state of relaxation while still being aware enough to respond to Dr. McCarthy’s requests.

IV Sedation

IV sedation is a more advanced form of sedation that’s administered intravenously. This allows our team to control the dosage amount easily and ensure that you’re completely at ease. Dr. McCarthy has undergone advanced training in dental anesthesiology, and she’s fully licensed and certified to provide IV sedation and the rest of these helpful techniques in New York.
