Sedation dentistry can be a life-changing option for patients who experience dental anxiety and, as a result, may worry about going to the dentist or even avoid seeking much-needed dental treatment. Dental sedatives induce a relaxed state before or at the beginning of a patient’s appointment so that he or she experiences little or no unease about the procedure. Some sedatives achieve a relatively mild effect, while others achieve a more pronounced effect similar to sleeping through the procedure (hence the term sleep dentistry). Sedation dentistry is compatible with a number of dental treatments, including many cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry procedures.
If you suffer from dental anxiety, don’t wait another minute in securing the dental care you deserve. Contact our today to learn more about how we can help reach your treatment goals with dental sedatives. We provide sedation (“sleep”) dentistry for patients.
Our office is committed to having a safe environment for our patients. A select group of doctors and dentists now have a board-certified anesthesiologist available for their office practice.
Dr. Atlas is a full professor in the department of anesthesiology at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. Patients can now safely receive anesthesia, for a wide range of dental and other office-based procedures, without going to a hospital.
Dr. Glen Atlas, a board certified anesthesiologist with over 12 years experience, and a group of select dentists, now offer dental patients the chance to receive anesthesia for dental procedures.
Dr. Atlas is an full professor, in the department of anesthesiology, at the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. He has produced 28 publications and has developed and patented state-of-the-art medical equipment. He has also received several research grants.
Dr. Atlas is also an adjunct member of the graduate faculty of Rutgers University Department of Biomedical Engineering.
After contacting the dentist, Dr. Atlas, the dentist, and the patient decide if this treatment option is appropriate for the patient. A mutually convenient date and time is also chosen.
Naturally, preexisting medical conditions may affect the how anesthesia will effect the patient. Dr. Atlas works closely with any other physicians the patient may have to deliver “optimum anesthesia.”
Patients receive “conscious sedation” or “twilight sleep.” Patients have little, if any, recall of the dental procedure. All patients have been delighted with “waking up” and having their dental procedure over.
