Dental Anxiety - Cedarhurst, NY

Dental Anxiety and What You Can Do

Dental Anxiety is a Common Concern

Dental anxiety is one of the leading reasons people avoid visiting the dentist. Over 40 million Americans suffer from dental fear and put off their care until it’s often too late. This fear my have arisen from a traumatic experience when they were younger, a fear of needles or drills, a dislike of the sights, smells or taste of dental treatments, or even just worry about a big procedure like full arch dental implants. Avoiding the dentist is never a good idea, as problems rarely get better by themselves and will just worsen. Luckily, our Cedarhurst, NY practice features a wide range of sedation options to help you get through your anxious moments and receive the dental care you need to enjoy a happy, healthy smile.

Our Sedation Options

Nitrous Oxide

Often called “laughing gas,” nitrous oxide is an odorless gas that is administered via a small mask worn over the nose. The sedation is quick to take effect and puts patients in a relaxed and calm state. After your treatment, the sedation effect ends quickly, returning patients back to normal.

Oral Sedation

Administered in pill form, oral sedation is an effective option for those undergoing more extensive treatments. While under the effect of this sedation, dental anxiety is drastically reduced as most patients are put into a sleepy, relaxed state. In many cases, you may not even remember your treatment at all! Afterward, it is important that you have a trusted friend or family member take you home as the sedation takes more time to wear off.
