New York City Sedation Dentistry
Committed to the Using Safest Methods
Many people often put off dental needs because they are simply afraid of experiencing pain. This is quite understandable, because even though pain is a necessary function designed to keep our body from dangerous situations, pain can also prevent us from getting the treatment we need to resolve deeper underlying issues.
If the anxiety of dental pain is keeping you from the care you need, you should consider trying our sedation dentistry in New York. Unlike traditional dental offices, here at City Endodontics PLLC, we can make you completely free not just of pain, but even your own fear of pain. Specializing in both sedation dentistry and sleep dentistry, all of our patients who have phobias of dental pain can get their mouths taken care of either under relaxed sedation or even a deep, tranquil sleep, depending on their individual needs.
Call us today at (212) 725-2573 to have all of your dental needs treated as you dream. Learn more about our New York City sedation dentistry options.
Sedation dentistry is defined as when the dentist uses certain types of medications to gently place the person undergoing treatment into a relaxed, awake state. If a patient has been sedated, that person can still communicate with the world around because they are conscious, just utterly at peace and relaxed. The patient can go to sleep if they desire, but they can also rest awake in tranquility.
Some of the benefits of sedation include:
- Losing any stress, anxiety, or fear, but all without necessarily losing consciousness
- Being able to still communicate any questions or comments to the dentist, offering even greater peace of mind
- The ability to easily go to sleep, but only if desired
- The ability to peacefully breathe on one’s own, without any need of respiratory machines
- The extremely short recovery time after sedation, as nitrous oxide takes only moments to wear off, while oral or IV sedation only takes a couple of hours to wear off
If you are still worried about feeling pain or anxiety during your dental procedure, sleep dentistry is another option, although our doctors do not recommend it as much as sedation. Normally, sedation can be safely used for every single type of dental treatment, from light cleanings to deep surgery. Sleep dentistry, since it opens up more opportunity for complications, is usually only kept for the most extreme procedures or phobias. Because this involves anesthesia that puts you completely asleep before the procedure, you should be wary of using sleep dentistry if you have respiratory or heart problems. The recovery after the anesthesia is longer than that of sedation methods.
