Are you scared of sitting in the dental chair? You are not alone. There are many people across the country who suffer from some form of dental anxiety, even if they have never had a bad experience while visiting a periodontist. To help our patients feel more relaxed during their visit, Dr. James Lesinski and the team at Complete Health Dentistry of WNY encourages you to try our sedation dentistry services.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is a gas that you breathe in through a max. It helps you to feel relaxed when your body is otherwise anxious. This gas does not numb you or put you to sleep. Dr. Lesinski may administer the nitrous oxide a little bit before treatment or before administering another form of sedation.


Oral Sedation


This type of sedation is often used for more complex procedures. It involves a pill that you take approximately 60 minutes before your procedure. In many cases, patients do not recall the appointment after the sedation wears off.

Benefits of Sedation

There are many good reasons to see a skilled periodontist who offers sedation dentistry:

  • Reduce anxious feelings: The anxiety alone can make it difficult to get to a dental office. Sedation can help to calm those anxious feelings.
  • Relax more during treatment: If you are more relaxed during treatment, Dr. Lesinski can provide more effective treatment.
  • Beat sensitive gag reflex and more: Sedation is not just for those who feel nervous – it can also help people who have sensitive gag reflexes or other issues that make it difficult for a dental professional to work in their mouth.
  • Healthier teeth: Most importantly, sedation dentistry helps patients to get the important dental care they need to maintain a healthy mouth and body.
