Help Me Staten Island; I’m Afraid Of The Dentist!

Sedation Dentistry Staten Island If you are afraid of your Staten Island cosmetic dentist, you are not alone. At Staten Island Dental Care, we encounter many nervous first-time Staten Island dental patients. How do we calm their fears, provide a comfortable dental environment and earn lifelong clients?

1) We carefully explain the findings of the initial dental examination and thoroughly outline any recommended procedures. The consultation also includes a discussion about pain control including oral conscious sedation medications. This allows our general dentistry clients to make informed decisions about their oral health and necessary dental procedures.

2) Dr. Frederick Hecht practices gentle, pain-free dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry treatment will not begin until you are numb. Keep in mind, however, that every dentistry patient reacts to numbing agents and sedation medications differently.

Speak up quickly if you start to feel discomfort. We will pause treatment, administer additional analgesic and wait until it takes effect. At Staten Island Dental Care, we never rush cosmetic dental or restorative procedures.

We will do our best to make you comfortable, whether you are receiving dental veneers, undergoing crown-lengthening treatment, having your teeth whitened, or replacing your old silver fillings.

3) We provide many in-office amenities at Staten Island Dental Care which help our dental patients focus on something pleasant during cosmetic dental treatment. Not every dental patient chooses sedation dentistry. Sometimes chemical-free diversions such as listening to your favorite music provide a diversion while letting you remain clear-headed.

At Staten Island Dental Care, we understand dental anxiety and will help you overcome it. We are located at 1520 Richmond Ave in Staten Island, NY 10314.
