Anesthesia in Manhattan
There are three different types of anesthesia that can be administered to help patients feel at ease during a dental procedure.
- Local Anesthesia numbs only the area of your mouth that is being treated. This is done with a type of injection. You are awake and aware of what is happening.
- Conscious Sedation is a mild sedative that relaxes you. You stay awake, but may not remember the procedure afterwards. This is done in conjunction with local anesthesia.
- General Anesthesia allows you to be unconscious (asleep) during your dental procedure. You should not feel any pain during your procedure. This is done in conjunction with local anesthesia.
