I've always had bad experiences at the dentist before. I could never find one that made me feel good about the experience unitl I went to Dr. Alex. Thank you Dr. Alex for everything. Thank you to your staff for making me feel at home.
For the very anxious patient we offer Sleep Dentistry, or Sedation Dentistry, at our Smithtown Long Island Dental Office. Imagine falling into a relaxed sleep and waking up with all of your dentistry completed in one visit in a safe and controlled environment. Our house dental anesthesiologists work side by side with us in the comfort and convenience of our dental office using the latest safety precautions and equipment.
Dr. Shvartsman has had extensive training performing dentistry under sedation and general anesthesia. He spent four years at the prestigious NSUH-LIJ Department of Dentistry where he served as Chief Dental Resident and treated many patients in the OR setting.
Some dentist's idea of sedation dentistry is a pill cocktail. Patients are given a handful of Valium like drugs and sleeping pills. This approach is taught during a weekend course all over the country and is heavily marketed to dentists. The trouble with this approach is that it is not only dangerous, but the same doctor performing the dentistry is responsible for your life. Physicians do not do this, they work side by side with Anesthesiologists for the safety of their patients. Splitting the doctor's focus between performing intricate dental procedures and maintaining the patients sedation and life has proven to be fatal on several occasions in the past decade. This is the reason Dr. Shvartsman focuses on providing your dental care while our anesthesiologist focuses on your safety and relaxation. Since our anesthesiologists are physicians, we have found that the majority of our patients get 100% reimbursement for sedation by their medical insurance!
The safe way to perform in-office Sedation Dentistry.
Dental IV Sedation allows for relaxed and comfortable state that results from the use of intravenous anesthesia. A combination of anesthetics first relaxes you, then produces profound amnesia and pain control. You'll feel, remember and worry about nothing. Patients breath on their own and reawaken soon after their dental treatment is done, with no memory of the procedure and having felt zero pain during treatment.
Sedation Dentistry is available at our state of the art dental office.
