NYC Cosmetic Dentists Serving Manhattan and New York, NY
If you are afraid or anxious at the dentist, or just generally experience discomfort at the dentist, then sedation dentistry may be right for you. In New York City, experienced sedation dentists Dr. Ramin Tabib and Dr. Elisa Mello provide conscious oral sedation and nitrous oxide so that you can receive the dental treatment you need and deserve, without fear.
Sedation Dentistry for a Relaxing Dental Appointment
Sedation dentistry may be a good option for you if you are fearful, anxious or uncomfortable at the dentist's office. There are many reasons you may be interested in sedation methods, such as:
- Bad dental experiences in your past
- Past dental trauma
- Discomfort experienced while in the treatment chair
- Need for multiple procedures to be performed in one appointment
Dental anxiety can be so overpowering that it prevents you from going to your routine dental appointments. When you don't get the dental care you need, it can be difficult to avoid common dental problems like cavities and gum disease. Sedation dentistry provides relaxation so that you can go to your dental appointments successfully.
Types of Sedation Dentistry at NYC Smile Design
At NYC Smile Design, we offer two main types of sedation dentistry:
Nitrous oxide (laughing gas): A light level of relaxation and sedation can be achieved with nitrous oxide gas. You breathe nitrous oxide through a mask placed over your nose, while supervised by the dentist. The great thing about laughing gas is that its effects wear off rapidly once you stop breathing it in. You'll be able to drive yourself home, and there aren't any side effects even though you'll be properly relaxed during treatment.
Oral sedation: With a safe, effective pill you take shortly before your treatment, you'll relax comfortably into a state of conscious sedation. You'll be awake and able to respond to any instructions from our dentists, but you'll also be deeply relaxed and won't remember the appointment afterward.
Dr. Mello and Dr. Tabib want you to feel calm and at-home when you visit our office. Visit us to see how comfortable our practice is and how we can help you overcome dental anxiety.
