Relaxing Dental Visits with Our Sedation Dentist
If you’re anxious about your upcoming visit to Washington Dental Associates or Smile More Dentistry, let our sedation dentist talk to you about the sedation dentistry options we offer. With this popular and effective service, we can help patients overcome their dental problems without any crippling worries or fears.
Because our patients have different needs, we offer multiple sedation options and will gladly discuss them during consultations at our offices in Bergenfield, NJ and Tappan, NY.
The Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
If you’ve avoided important care because of dental anxiety in the past, sedation dentistry can help you calm those feelings and have a more relaxing and pleasant experience. It’s also a good service for patients who want to get more work completed in a single visit, as well as those with sensitive gag reflexes and those who don’t respond to local anesthesia.
About Dr. Mendia
Dr. Mendia, our anesthesiologist, is board certified and has a D.D.M. from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. He also completed a two-year postdoctoral residency with the school in conjunction with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC). His residency allowed him to complete more than 1,200 cases of hospital-based general anesthesia in the areas of dentistry, general surgery, otolaryngology surgery, and obstetrics. With his years of experiencing and training, he’s more than qualified to provide patients of all kinds with safe, soothing sedation.
After Your Appointment
You may still feel a little sleepy following your procedure. We’ll monitor your condition and keep you in our office until you’re ready to go home. For safety reasons, you should have a friend or family member there to drive you. You’ll be ready to return to your normal routine by the next day.
