Sedation Dentistry

Dental fear is one of the primary reasons that people delay dental care to the point that they develop serious dental problems requiring more extensive and even scarier procedures. Sedation dentistry makes dental care possible for people who cannot otherwise tolerate dental procedures due to fear, strong gag reflex, pain and other obstacles. Sedation dentistry has many other advantages, even for those who can normally undergo dental care with ease.  Integrated Dental Aesthetics, in Kinnelon, New Jersey offers sedation dentistry so that all of our patients can have a more relaxed and comfortable dental experience.

For patients who have a history of avoiding the dentist out of fear of pain or injections, Integrated Dental Aesthetics offers relaxation dentistry. This one-pill system, which does not involve an IV or any other needles, is also the perfect option for individuals who have trouble getting numb. Patients who opt for this plan:

  1. Have little or no memory of the procedure.
  2. Correct years of dental problems in just one or two visits.

There is very little that we cannot do to help every patient achieve a healthier and more attractive smile.

Who Can Benefit From Sedation Dentistry?

Anyone who wants a more comfortable and relaxed procedure can benefit from sedation dentistry. Some of the reasons that people choose sedation dentistry include:

  • Strong gag reflex
  • Resistance to numbing
  • Dental anxiety or fear
  • Traumatic dental experience in the past
  • TMJ making it difficult to fully open your mouth during dental procedures
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Neck or back pain
  • Very sensitive teeth
  • Jaw pain
  • Medical conditions which make it difficult to control movements

Sedation Dentistry Options

We offer nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.

For oral sedation, Kinnelon sedation dentist Dr. Jessica Logan is certified in the state of New Jersey to perform Enteral Conscious sedation. You will be given an oral sedative when you arrive at our office. Although you will be conscious and breathing on your own, you will be very relaxed, and many patients actually sleep during the procedure.

For the extreme dental phobic, we offer total sedation dentistry, which entails Board Certified Anesthesiologist Dr. Glen Atlas, coming to our office to offer general anesthesia for complex cases.
