Do You Offer Sedation?
Many men and women of all ages alike have real phobias about visiting the dentist. KFA Dental Excellence performs sedation dentistry in our Farmingdale, NY office for this reason. Feeling safe, comfortable, and relaxed is how we want you to feel during any dental treatment or procedure. One of our highly skilled dentists would be happy to meet with you during a consultation to go over the various sedation choices we have available at KFA Dental Excellence to help you find the best option for you and your needs. We look forward to helping you get the dental care you need without any fear or stress.
What sedation options are available?
We offer a variety of sedation options, depending on the level of sedation needed. Our commonly requested sedation dentistry methods are:
Nitrous oxide sedation: This is often referred to as laughing gas and is a standard type of sedation that provides mild sedation. Patients typically will be able to leave the office on their own.
Intravenous (IV) sedation: This form of sedation is administered directly into an individual's veins to completely calm them during their procedure. At KFA Dental Excellence, we offer IV sedation upon request for our patients.
"Dr. Ferrari and the entire team at KFA Dental are amazing. Working for an orthodontist for over 10 years I have heard so many wonderful things so when it came to my own dental care, I knew where I wanted to go. From the first visit to my recent fillings, they make everything so seamless and comfortable, and I am highly sensitive!! Thank you so much for making my experience such a wonderful one!"- M.K. / Google / Mar 07, 2020

"I started going to KFA Dental around 8 years ago. They are the BEST by far! Everyone in the office is kind, compassionate and professional. My dental Hygenist, Melissa, and my dentist, Dr Aldieri, have taken excellent care of me. They are truly concerned with my overall health, In addition to my dental needs. If you are considering switching, look no further. This is the place to get the absolute best care!"- E.W. / Google / Feb 29, 2020
"I have been going to this dental practice for more than 25 years and couldn't imagine getting dental work done anywhere else. They have moved from their original location and have added 2 dentists over the years but a practice I always loved got even better over time. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience there. The office is modern and immaculate. When you arrive for your appointment, you are immediately greeted by the friendly staff at the reception desk. The office is run like clockwork so you never have to wait very long. Once called in, you are personally escorted to your dental chair (which has a massage option) where they go out their way to make you feel extremely comfortable. You get personalized attention to discuss any problems or concerns you may be having in your mouth. This office has all the latest and greatest in technology to make your experience the best it can be. The dentists, hygienists and all staff members are great people who are very caring and dedicated to their profession. My family of five are all patients and although my older children moved away from the area, they return to have all their dental work done by KFA Dental!"- K.S. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"I have been a long time patient of Dr. Ferrari and moved to Manhattan 6 years ago. Due to no longer having a car, I had decided that maybe it was time to find a dentist in closer proximity to me. I was a dental assistant in the past and I am very particular when it comes to who touches my teeth. I took a chance trying someone new and although they were ok, they weren’t Dr. Ferrari. I decided to return back to KFA this year - I had to bottle a friends car - but when it comes to my teeth, I can’t just let anyone touch them. This office is very thorough, super clean, and their staff is amazing. From the front desk, to the assistants I always leave with a nice bright smile on my face. I highly recommend KFA dental, especially Dr Ferrari and no matter where I move to, I will always find a way to make my way back to their offices."- A.O. / Google / Feb 17, 2021
Can I Get Sedation?
While not everyone has a great deal of fear and anxiety about going to the dentist, there are many that do. Should you suffer from severe fear and anxiety at the idea of routine dental appointments, then you are probably a great candidate for sedation dentistry. We have a variety of sedation options available so we will ask you questions regarding your lifestyle and medical history to help determine which sedation option will be most effective for you. On top of sedation dentistry, we do offer cable TV, massage chairs, and noise-canceling headphones as an additional measure to help you remain calm and feel comfortable while in our office.
What Can I Expect From Sedation?
The process for sedation dentistry differs from person to person based on which method you've selected. For nitrous oxide sedation, we will temporarily calm you by putting a mask over your nose, which administers nitrous oxide gas. With IV sedation, you will be eased into a heavily relaxed state prior to the procedure through the use of medication from an IV.
Is there Any Follow-Up With Sedation?
We will carefully go over what to expect before and after your procedure and answer any questions or concerns that you may have. In some cases, you'll need to have somebody else drive you home after treatment. In others, you will be fine to drive yourself. After your procedure, getting rest and rehydrating are important to feeling more like yourself. You might be tired for the rest of the day, but that is normal and should fade within a day or so. After your procedure, you will have conquered your fear of the dentist and will be on your way to having a healthy mouth!
Patients should not have to experience phobias or nervousness to keep up their oral health, or worse, avoid it altogether. By choosing sedation dentistry at KFA Dental Excellence, your dental cleanings, exams, and procedures can become a beneficial and peaceful experience.
