Sedation Dentistry. “What’s up with that”?

May 25, 2011

As one of the very few dentists licensed to administer IV sedation in NJ (other than Oral Surgeons there are less than 100 IV sedation permits in NJ) I get a lot of patients calling the office for the service. They come from throughout northern and central NJ looking for something that almost all don’t and can’t offer.

Do you need to be Sedated?

There is a lot of talk these days about Sedation Dentistry. It has become a life changing experience for many. Millions of people avoid going to the dentist each year because of fear, anxiety, negative childhood experience, gag reflex to name just a few. Many people have asked me to talk about the topic. Sedation dentistry is the fastest growing alternative to traditional dental treatment. When your body gets into the anxious mode it releases hormones and chemicals that can leave your muscles tight and tired. While sedated, your body is relaxed and all those corrosive chemicals are absent. You wake up feeling refreshed and relaxed. You can get more dentistry done in one visit rather than multiple visits making it convenient and less stressful. IV Sedation, may be a more appropriate alternative for people who are nervous or apprehensive about dental procedures or who require complicated or lengthy treatments.

This sedation will allow you to be relaxed throughout the entire procedure. You will remain conscious (unlike general anesthesia) but you will be in a complete state of relaxation. Your vital signs are constantly monitored. When you awake you will feel refreshed and have little memory of the procedure.
