Do you feel anxiety over arranging dental appointments, or perhaps you haven’t felt able to visit your family dentist for years? Some people are unable to visit the dentist due to fears over dental pain, which can often be down to a previous bad experience. Others are simply afraid of the dentist, or may have heard horror stories from their parents. In fact far more people than you might imagine have some level of dental phobia, but a good sedation dentist in Brooklyn, NYC could help you comfortably receive essential dental care
What is Sedation Dentistry?
A sedation dentist is someone who has been specially trained to help nervous or fearful patients receive dental treatment. Sedation dentistry uses various medications to help patients relax. Some of these medications are taken as a tablet, shortly before treatment, while others such as nitrous oxide or laughing gas can be administered during treatment. These will help patients relax a little, making treatment far more pleasant. This level of sedation is perfect for anyone who is nervous of going to the dentist, but who does not want to be completely sedated.
Sleep dentistry is where a sedative is administered intravenously. You will still be able to respond to questions, but you will not be aware of what is happening, and will have little or no recollection of your appointment once the sedative wears off.
This is ideal if you have not been to the dentist for a while and require an extensive amount of treatment to regain your dental health. It will enable your dentist to complete far more work during your appointment. Cosmetic sedation dentistry can be good if you are a nervous patient but would love to have a smile makeover.
