Does the thought of having your teeth worked on make you anxious or uncomfortable? Do the sight of needles and the sound of dental drills make you cringe? Now imagine if you could have everything done while you nap comfortably and awake to not remembering anything from the procedure. By the use of intravenous sedation, we can do this for you. Dr. Giraldo of New Dimension Dentistry in New York has been helping people overcome these fears for many years.
IV sedation dentistry is when a drug, usually of the anti-anxiety variety, is administered into the blood system during dental treatment to produce a relaxed feeling. Recovery time is a little longer and you’ll need someone to drive you home after your dental treatment is completed. IV sedation dentistry can benefit a wide range of patients, including people with:
- High dental anxiety and fear.
- A severe gag reflex.
- Difficulty getting numb.
- Extensive treatment needs.
- A desire to have dentistry done comfortably while.they are fully relaxed.
Since sedation is not for everyone, we also offer Nitrous Oxide treatment. Nitrous Oxide is commonly referred to as “Laughing Gas.” This mild sedative inhalant will put you in a euphoric state of relaxation and will help make the dental procedures much easier for you to handle.
We understand that going to the dentist can be very difficult for some people. Dental phobia is actually a lot more common than you may think. It is estimated that about 15% of Americans avoid going to the dentist because of this reason.
