If you've ever had an unpleasant experience at the dentist office it may deter you from making future appointments that you need for you oral health. At NYC Smile Design, we understand not everyone is a fan of the dentist and that some dental work can make people feel uncomfortable. That's why we offer sedation dentistry at our office to help ease any anxiety you may have, so that we can help you get the treatment you need for a beautiful, healthy smile.
If you experience some level of anxiety or trepidation whenever the thought of the dentist comes up, you're not alone. Millions of Americans have some sort of unease regarding dental work. Whether you had a bad experience at a previous dentist office or if you're afraid of the pain that may be involved with a certain procedure, Dr. Tabib and Dr. Mello are experienced sedation dentists that can alleviate your anxiety. At our office in Manhattan, we offer two types of sedation, including:
- Nitrous oxide: Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is a light level of sedation and its effects wear off quickly, allowing you to receive treatment and drive yourself home.
- Oral sedation: By taking a pill before your procedure, you'll relax into a safe, conscious sedation in which you'll be awake and able to respond but will have no recollection of the appointment afterward.
At NYC Smile Design we want you to feel as comfortable as possible for any dental procedure you may need. Neglecting your oral health can lead to serious health issues and our dentists are happy to work with you to make you feel at ease so that you can get the treatment you need.
