Midtown Manhattan Sedation Dentistry
Some patients feel immense apprehension and discomfort at the dentist’s office. It’s imperative that patients receive the care they need despite these fears.
We offer sedation dentistry services at the office of Joseph LoPinto, DDS. These services empower phobic patients to take charge of their oral health.
Our sedation methods include:
- Nitrous Oxide
- IV Sedation
- General Anesthesia
- Local Anesthesia
- Oral Sedation
Our staff is highly trained in the administration and management of dental sedatives. First, we evaluate our patients closely to determine if they are good candidates for sedation. After a thorough inventory of their medical history and current vitals, we choose a method that works best for both dentist and patient needs. We ensure patients receive the minimum amount of sedative solution necessary to complete our goals.
Patient Anxiety Management
If you or a loved one experience anxiety surrounding dental visits, express your concerns to our staff. Our team is sensitive to the needs of our patients, and will gladly accommodate your requests. Patient health is our top priority, but we can’t accomplish those goals without our patients being as comfortable as possible.
We keep an open dialogue between patient and staff, so our patients feel comfortable enough to let us know when things are becoming stressful. Each patient is treated as an individual with valuable input to our procedural process.
If you’re anticipating upcoming dental work, Joseph LoPinto is sure to offer a sedation method that suits your needs:
More often than not, nitrous oxide or “laughing gas” is our choice of sedation. This method is easy to administer and is a great way to keep patients calm yet responsive during procedures. We allow patients to breathe in the nitrous oxide gas and in just a few breaths, they will feel a sense of calm euphoria.
This method of sedation encourages patients to relax before they get to our office. Often, patients experience amnesiac effects after their sedation has worn off. This option is great for phobic patients.
We choose IV sedation for patients undergoing complex procedures that require extensive work. IV sedation lets us closely monitor our patients as they remain in a near-sleep state.
General and Local Anesthesia
General anesthesia works by putting patients into a gentle slumber. They sleep peacefully and are unaware of their procedure taking place. Local anesthesia numbs the area being worked on but allows patients to remain awake. Some patients prefer this option as they feel more comfortable speaking with the dentist during treatments.
