    Dr. Stephen Matarazzo, Cosmetic Dentist in Quincy, MA Introduces Oral Sedation




    Dr. Stephen Matarazzo, Quincy, MA cosmetic dentist, recently introduced oral sedation to provide his patients with more comfortable, anxiety-free dental visits. With approximately 1 in 7 Americans experiencing some level of fear or anxiety about dental visits, oral sedation is helping encourage patients to still receive much needed care without pain and stress.


    Also referred to as “sleep dentistry,” sedation dentistry puts patients in a relaxed state during their office visit, while still being conscious and responsive.


    “Oral sedation has really revolutionized the way many of our patients now view dental visits,” said Dr. Stephen Matarazzo, sedation dentist in Quincy, MA. “With this simple treatment, we can provide all patients—no matter their level of dental anxiety—with the services and procedures they need to achieve optimal oral health.


    ”Oral sedation patients are given a prescription prior to their visit for one or two pills that they take one hour before their appointment. The pill allows the patient to relax and makes them less perceptive of sights, smells, sounds, and discomfort they may feel during treatment. Oral sedation is an effective treatment for those who are simply nervous about their visit, or those that need multiple procedures done in one office visit. Unlike other sedatives, oral sedation for dentistry completely leaves the system within four hours so the patient can return to normal everyday life after their visit is complete.


    Patient reviews of Dr. Matarazzo’s oral sedation services have been outstanding.


    “I used to be the biggest chicken in the continental U.S., but not anymore,” said Jane Hilley, a recipient of oral sedation in Quincy by Dr. Matarazzo. “I have now undergone root canals, crowns, fillings, and oral surgery without fear, panic, or pain. This new med rocks. Of course, so does my dentist, Dr. Steve.


    ”In addition to oral sedation, Dr. Matarazzo is also a highly skilled dental implants dentist in Quincy, MA to provide patients with missing or failing teeth with a brand new, permanent smile. He and his staff provide a variety of other dental services including teeth whitening, porcelain crowns, Lumineers, periodontal care, gum contouring, and emergency dental care.


    A graduate of Tufts School of Dental Medicine, Dr. Stephen Matarazzo has been a practicing dentist in the Quincy area for nearly 35 years. Throughout his many years as a dental professional, he has stayed involved in continuing education in dentistry to remain updated on the latest tools, techniques, and procedures. As such, Dr. Matarazzo is also a trained TMJ dentist in Quincy, MA to treat those with facial and jaw pain. Additionally, he is a preferred Invisalign dentist in Quincy, MA for those patients who want straighter teeth without the hassle of traditional braces.
