Sedation Dentistry and Westchester Sedation Dentists
Sleep Dentistry in Westchester County, Peekskill, Yorktown, New York
Many people in the Westchester, New York area avoid seeing a dentist due to anxiety or fear. This may be related to previous experiences, a fear of needles, heightened sensitivity, or just a general discomfort with dental procedures. Unfortunately, this means that too many people are avoiding the general dentistry services they require for a healthy mouth, and the cosmetic dentistry service they deserve to look and feel their best.
Dr. George Sepiashvili and Dr. Wanda Mejia understand these fears. Our Westchester area sedation dentists offer the safest, least invasive, and most effective treatment options available. Still, some people cannot overcome the discomfort they feel when visiting a dentist. Because of this, we are pleased to offer the option for sedation dentistry (sometimes referred to as "sleep dentistry") to help eliminate anxiety, and provide a comfortable and relaxing dental experience.
Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake Sedation Dentistry Options
Our sedation dentists offer two of the most effective and proven safe methods of sedation:
- Oral sedation â€“ This is done with valium taken about an hour prior to your procedure. With oral sedation, you will remain awake, but feel completely at ease during your procedure. This option also reduces your gag reflex, making it ideal for patients who suffer from heightened sensitivity
- Nitrous Oxide â€“Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is an inhalable gas that produces feelings of relaxation and euphoria. Like oral sedation, nitrous oxide allows you to remain awake and able to respond to simple commands while reducing anxiety and discomfort. Unlike oral sedation, nitrous oxide works immediately, and wears off quickly, making it better for patients who need to return to work or a demanding family life shortly after their dental treatment
There is no one ideal solution for every patient, but there is a solution. Our dentists offer different types of sedation to enable us to better meet the needs of every patient we see. Our sedation dentists will work closely with you, paying attention to your concerns, to help you find the sedation solution most suited to provide you with the comfort you deserve.
