Oral sedation dentistry is now the most common technique used in the United States to quell patient fears. It makes use of a prescription medication that induces a drowsy, relaxed feeling. We administer this medication orally (no needles!)
Due to the relaxing effects of the medication, patients must have a friend or family member bring them to the dental office and return them home.
Once you've experienced sedation dentistry at Westchester Smile Design, you'll probably never be afraid to go to the dentist again.
You'll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment, as if you were relaxing. You'll wake up refreshed, with little or no memory of what was accomplished. Because you are completely comfortable, Dr. Markovitch can do years of dental treatments in one or two visits.
Dr. Markovitch can replace crowns or dentures, restore sore gums to good health, whiten yellow or stained teeth, fix a chipped tooth, and more. People with very busy schedules can get the dental care they need, easily and quickly.
If you have a great deal of anxiety about going to the dentist, sedation dentistry at Westchester Smile Design could be right for you.
It Really Works! You really can relax through your dental appointment.
It Is Safe! You take a small pill prior to treatment, no intravenous tubes or needles.
You will have little or no memory of the experience. You probably won't remember any sounds or smells.
You will relax for up to five to six hours after taking the pill. The time you are relaxing will vary depending on your needed treatment.
Complex dental treatments that often require six to eight appointments, can be done in as little as one! All while you relax.
People who have difficulty getting numb will find that relaxing sedation dentistry eliminates this problem.
Sedation dentistry is a safe way to reduce the fatigue of extended dental treatment requiring long visits.
We understand the anxiety associated with contemplating going to the dentist, that is why we offer you to make an appointment for a free consultation with no obligations, or for just a visit, during which you get to meet the doctor and the staff, tour the office and ask all the questions you might have. You will find a friendly, caring and pleasant doctor and staff and a modern, high tech facility that enables us to perform state of the art dental procedures.
Your initial visit (if you desire) will include a consultation, explaining the conditions of your mouth and treatment options. Sometimes treatment can be started at this visit. Please bring with you a list of medication you are presently taking and names of your medical doctors.
Sedation, Nitrous Oxide "laughing gas" and other RELAXATION methods are available.
If you wish, you can have your dental treatment done while you SNOOZE,
SEDATED with just a PILL!
