Odontophobic. Anti-Dentite. Call it what you want, but as many as 10% of Americans have a phobia of going to the dentist, to the point of avoiding essential dental procedures.
Although it is well-known that dentist works hard to help and care for patients, there are still many people with a pervasive and detrimental fear of visiting the dentist. For this demographic, sedation dentistry may be the best solution for quelling fears and providing the dental care they desperately need.
Sedation dentistry uses sedative drugs (hence the name!) such as nitrous oxide to place patients into a relaxed and calm state before and during dental procedures. It’s not exclusive to patients with a fear of the dentist; sedation dentistry is great for any type of procedure that may take hours of work.
At Preferred Dental Care Chelsea, one of the top general dentistry clinics in Manhattan, patients enjoy all of the perks of comfort and care with sedation dentistry. Amenities include a beverage bar, comfortable blankets, and back and foot massages, along with the nitrous oxide used for the sedation dentistry.
Preferred Dental Care Chelsea’s dentists are licensed professionals who work to deliver premiere dental care to each patient. By offering a serene environment and calming sedation dentistry, more New Yorkers can comfortably visit the dentist for their bi-annual checkups and general dentistry procedures.
