Sedation dentistry

Do you feel a high sense of anxiety when going to the dentist? Sedation dentistry can help.  Depending on the sedative, patients can receive treatment at the start of the appointment. Once sedated, patients will feel relaxed and will have little to no anxiety,  Sedation can be used with wide variety of dental treatments including many cosmetic, restorative, and general dentistry procedures.

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.

Let our team help overcome your anxiety!
