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.

EVERY PATIENT HAS A STORY

I just started going to Dr. Singer. He and his teams views on health, nutrition and lifestyle management are very much in line with my own. It's really hard to find solid Dentist who is also holistic. So far I really like the practice and am looking forward to working with them for years to come.

I have been a patient for a while and have only good things to say about Dr. Singer’s practice. The office is immaculate and the entire staff is friendly, efficient, caring and highly skilled. Dr. Singer takes time and explains what he’s doing every step of the way and after procedures he follows up himself to make sure all is well which it always is. I recently needed an emergency visit during the pandemic and knew that his office would be safe to visit because of their history of best hygienic practices. They now adhere to an even higher standard ensuring the safety of staff and patients alike.

I throughly enjoyed my visit with Dr. Singer and his team. From my first scheduling call with Laurie to getting set up with Kelly and to my examination with Dr. Singer everything was seamless.When going to a new doctor/dentist office one is always worried that the staff can be unfriendly at times. However, Dr. Singer’s team was so warm and friendly which made me feel very comfortable.If you’re looking for a new dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Singer!

I’ve been to about 10 dentists, dr singer has been my favorite thus far. He has the latest technology, ozonated water, and leans in a more natural direction. He’s IAOMT accredited, is always very respectful of my time & gets me right in, is very direct & transparent with my teeth & has excellent bedside manner. Give him a try, I wholeheartedly recommend 🙏
