Patients who have anxiety or dental phobias may postpone or avoid necessary treatments. Neglecting oral health can lead to tooth loss, disease, and overall health problems. Sedation Dentistry can help a patient overcome dental fear.
IV Sedation is delivered intravenously to promote high levels of relaxation while a patient is receiving dental care. Typically, a patient remains conscious and is able to respond to questions but does not experience extreme nervousness or discomfort; 90% of patients experience an amnesia effect and do not recall the procedure. Dr. Tina Frangella is certified by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine for the administration of IV sedation to patients.
Sedation Dentistry can give you the peace of mind you need in order to undergo dental work. It will allow you to receive the care necessary for you to enjoy better overall health, an improved self-image, and better quality of life with a healthy, beautiful smile.
Our non-invasive methods allow patients to receive needed dental care with minimal interrupting to their daily lifestyles. In many cases, we can perform cosmetic or restorative dental treatments in just one visit to our Manhattan dental office.
