Oral Sedation in Fort Lee, NJ & Surrounding Area

We want our patients to feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible during their visit. That’s why we may recommend oral sedation for those patients who suffer from dental anxiety or fear. Oral sedation can help you feel calm and less tense during your appointment so that you can receive the treatments necessary to improve your oral health and smile. This sedation option can be used for many routine dental procedures and is a cost-effective alternative to IV sedation for controlling discomfort and anxiety.

A form of conscious sedation, oral sedation may be recommended to ensure that you have a comfortable experience each time you visit our office. It is administered in pill form making it simple and easy to use. While you will remain awake during the treatment, it will make you feel more relaxed and at ease. The many benefits of sedation dentistry include:

  • It is in a pill form making it quick and easy to administer
  • No needles are involved
  • Patients remember little to nothing of their procedure
  • Oral sedation typically costs less than other forms of sedation

You and the dentist will work together to determine if oral sedation is right for you. If it is, you will be prescribed a pill that will help you relax before your appointment. You will receive instructions on when to take the pill before your appointment, as well. It’s important to follow the instructions included with the pill. Also, make sure you have a family member or friend to drive you to and from your appointment. By the time you arrive at our office, you will be awake but extremely relaxed. You may also feel drowsy, but you will still be able to respond to the dental team.

If you feel anxious or fearful before dental appointments, oral sedation might be a good solution for you. Please call our office today and schedule a consultation with Dr. Joel Singer at (201) 429-0097.
