What to Expect
Our in-house sedation treatment is needle free and all medication is taken by mouth. Within several minutes you'll start to dose off. The drowsiness will usually wear off after a few hours, so it's important to have someone with you to drive you home afterward.
Most of our sedation patients also experience an amnesic-like effect. There's little to no chance that you'll remember much of the appointment at all. Most people describe their visit like taking a light nap or dreaming.
Types of Treatments Completed Under Sedation
Any dental procedure can be performed under dental sedation, including cleanings. We prefer to plan your care out in advance and then arrange to schedule the procedures all on the same day. Most people who request sedation are those in need of things like multiple extractions, dental implant placement, or complex restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
The advantage is that multiple steps can be performed during the same appointment. Otherwise, we schedule them separately to work on one area of your mouth at a time.
Take Control Over Your Oral Health
Our gentle Kinnelon dentist want every patient experience to be a positive one. If you have a history of uncomfortable dental visits, sensitive teeth, or a hyperactive gag reflex, those issues could be standing in the way of enjoying the healthier smile that you deserve.
Chances are, once you catch up on your dental care under sedation, you can return to normal routine checkups without needing to "sleep" through your visits ever again.
