Sedation Dentists/Dentistry Bergen County, NJ
Have you heard the terms sleep dentistry or sedation dentistry but aren't sure what they mean? Sleep/sedation dentistry utilizes oral medication and/or nitrous oxide to completely relax a patient before dental work is done. You will experience an intense sense of well being, and your fear and anxiety will be gone. Although you will not completely lose consciousness, you may have no memory of the procedures after the dentist visit is over, and your sense of time may be altered. For instance, it may seem like only a few minutes have passed, when it has been over an hour. Sound good? If you live in Bergen County, New Jersey, Teeth Now can connect you with sedation dentists in your area.
Sedation dentistry does not replace the need for a local anesthetic, however the injection experience will be less intense after sedation.

Before you make an appointment, call your insurance company to verify coverage. Some companies only cover sedation with specific procedures, others may only cover specific forms of sedation. Most companies will cover nitrous oxide, and even if they don't it is usually under $100, and is very effective. Just make sure your dentist understands your anxiety level, and don't be afraid to ask for a solid dose.
Plan ahead for the day of your appointment. You will not be able to drive a car or return to work immediately after your visit. Have a friend or relative pick you up and take you home, or to a place you can rest. It will take about two to three hours for the effects to wear off.
