Picture the following scenario: You are stretched out in a chair at your dentist office holding a remote as you try to tune into your favorite New York radio station. A woman clips a paper bib around your neck. Someone switches on a bright overhead light and you see latex-gloved hands moving toward your open mouth. You close your eyes.
As you read this, does your heart start to race? Are your palms sweaty?
If so, you may be a good candidate for sedation dentistry. Oral sedation benefits nervous dental patients in Staten Island every day. Moderate sedation is used for all types of dental procedures such as root canals, dental implants, and wisdom teeth removal. If you are considering extensive restorative or cosmetic dental work, conscious sedation may allow your Staten Island dentist to complete multiple procedures in a single visit.
Don’t let fear prevent you from getting the dental treatment you need. Schedule a visit with Dr. Fred Hecht to learn about conscious sedation dentistry.
