Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?May 10, 2017
Sedation dentistry, sometimes called sleep dentistry or twilight dentistry, is one of the most effective ways for people struggling with dental phobia to achieve optimal relaxation prior to and during any oral health or beauty treatment. Manhattan sedation dentists Dr. Elisa Mello and Dr. Ramin Tabib offer both nitrous oxide sedation and oral sedation, enabling them to meet the exact needs of each individual patient. If you believe you could benefit from gentle sedation prior to your treatment, we would be happy to discuss these options with you in greater detail during your next appointment.
The types of sedation offered by our dentists have been proven safe and effective for most patients. The best way to learn if sedation dentistry will be suitable for you is through a one-on-one consultation at our Manhattan office. During this visit we can evaluate your medical history, discuss the types of sedation we offer, and help you determine if you could benefit from this service.
What is Sedation Dentistry Good for?
Sedation dentistry is good for easing the anxiety of men and women who struggle with dental phobia. Even mild cases of dental phobia can prevent people from seeking needed preventive dentistry services. With sedation, fears are allayed, allowing for optimal oral health and beauty without the emotional discomfort that can accompany dental care for some individuals. But you needn’t suffer from dental phobia to benefit from sedation services.
Sedation dentistry is ideal for people who:
- Struggle with dental anxiety or phobia
- Have highly sensitive teeth
- Do not respond well to numbing agents
- Have an overactive gag-reflex
- Suffer from TMJ
- Need a longer and more involved procedure
Sedation can also assist patients with RLS, general anxiety, and a host of other issues achieve comfort and calm.
