sedation vs. behavioral dental fear

Behavioral Approach To Treating Dental Fears And Phobias Versus Sedation

At NYC Smile Spa, we are passionate about helping our patients overcome their fears and phobias about receiving dental care. We know that there are patients who have avoided receiving care for many years due to their feelings. To help patients get the care they need, many dentists in the US have been trained to deal with fearful and phobic patients by providing various forms of sedation. We have a different and unique approach that Dr. Krochak explains further. Click here to watch the short video where Dr. Krochak explains his belief in choosing a behavioral approach over sedation.

We Can Help You Overcome Your Dental Fear And Anxiety

At NYC Smile Spa, we specialize in treating patients who have dental fear and anxiety. There are many people who have a fear of the dentist and receiving dental treatments. Unfortunately, postponing routine dental care and necessary treatments can lead to more complex dental problems and the need for additional treatments. This is not ideal for someone who suffers from dental anxiety. It can become a vicious cycle. Unlike other practices, we help patients overcome their fear and anxiety without sedation dentistry. Patients who use sedation dentistry will still have their same fears and will have to be sedated again the next time they need treatment.
