Many people in the Westchester, New York area avoid seeing a dentist due to anxiety or fear. 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.

No matter what the source of your dental anxiety, we can help you feel comfortable and relaxed at the dentist so you can get the care you need. Please call (914) 352-5175 or email Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake today to learn how we can help you.

A Comfortable Dental Office

Dr. George Sepiashvili and Dr. Wanda Mejia understand these fears. Our Westchester area sedation dentists offer compassionate care and work hard to help every patient feel relaxed and comfortable in our office. 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.

In addition to dental anxiety, people might benefit from sedation dentistry if they have:

  • Difficulty getting numb
  • A strong gag reflex
  • Difficulty sitting still for procedures
  • Soreness or stiffness during or after dental visits

These are usually related to dental anxiety, but may be independent. Sedation dentistry helps you have comfortable, positive visits to the dentist.

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 — This is done with a pill 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 — 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.
