Sedation Dentistry

Dental Care Should Help, Not Hurt

A New Approach to Overcoming Anxiety

At Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake, we pride ourselves on making patients eager to come back. We understand that many people don’t like to see the dentist and we know how to treat them to change that. Our highly trained, experienced dentists and the entire team here have the expertise and compassionate manner to reassure even the most anxious patient. We also take a different approach to sedation dentistry in Mohegan Lake and Tarrytown, NY, offering both the best of traditional methods and an exclusive new total sensory experience. Pain and fear don’t have to be part of dental implants, full mouth reconstruction, or any cosmetic procedure we do.

Traditional Sedation Options

Oral sedation is a popular choice among our patients—especially those suffering from dental anxiety—because it puts you in a sleeplike state. While under its effects, you won’t feel anything, nor will you remember your procedure afterward. For this type of sedation, you simply swallow a pill a short time before you begin your treatment. We also offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, which we administer through a mask immediately before starting a procedure. You probably won’t laugh, but you’ll remain conscious and calm throughout your treatment. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off quickly afterward.

We like to give our patients choices, one of which means not stopping with these traditional sedation options. At Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake, we also offer a more recent advancement which many patients are just discovering. It’s redefining how we keep you comfortable and pain-free.

An Exclusive, All-Natural Alternative

You’ve never seen anything like NuCalm. A relatively recent innovation in sedation dentistry, NuCalm is not so much a form of anesthesia as a total sensory experience that prevents pain and fear while leaving you rejuvenated. You’ll feel more like you visited a spa than a dental office. This system works through a combination of elements: A natural amino acid that helps you relax, gentle stimulation with a TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) unit, music that regulates your brainwaves, and an eye mask to block out external distractions. We’re proud to be one of the only dental practices to offer this type of sedation dentistry in Mohegan Lake and Tarrytown, NY. Its advantages are unequaled:
  • Drug-free sedation
  • Effective in four minutes
  • Natural ingredients
  • Alleviates dental anxiety
  • Proven safe
