We Provide Multiple Dental Sedation OptionsDr. Mitchel Friedman on Sedation Dentistry Read Transcript
We have sedation options for everyone, and there's no judgment here, so whatever your needs are, some people are fearful, some people just want to get it all done at one visit, some people have fear of gagging, they have a very sensitive gage reflex, and some people had bad experiences when they were a child. Whatever it is, there are sedation options for those people. I've been certified in providing sedation in the state of New Jersey since 2001, and I'm very proud of that. I have several certifications, and also advanced training, in sedation. It's very safe, and patients really appreciate it. And again, there's no judgment here. If it's something that you feel that you need, and you're healthy enough for it, and if there are any concerns, we do contact your physician to make sure it's the best option for you, then absolutely, it's available for you.
Did you know that as many as one in five Americans suffer from dental anxiety for one reason or another? At our Lincroft, NJ dental office, we understand it’s not a matter of simply “getting over it” when it comes to dental anxiety. That’s why we provide sedation dentistry options to help put you at ease, including:
- Inhaled sedation: this mixture of gas and oxygen will quickly give you a mild euphoric feeling and calm your nerves
- Oral conscious dental sedation: to ensure you arrive fully calm, we will provide a prescription for this medication that you will take before you visit us
- IV sedation: this form of dental sedation, the strongest we offer, takes effect almost immediately and produces an almost dream-like state
We will carefully monitor you during your treatment to provide the most comfortable experience we can.
Besides helping you relax, dental sedation options help:
- Control your gag reflex
- Improve patient cooperation
- Speed treatment time
- Leave you with little or no memory of the procedure
Our dentists are highly qualified to administer sedation. Dr. Mitchel Friedman obtained his doctorate of dental surgery (DDS) at the Medical College of Virginia School of Dentistry. He’s also a member of the New Jersey Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Society of Anesthesia, the Monmouth-Ocean County Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, the New Jersey Academy of General Dentistry, and the American Dental Society of Anesthesia. He’s one of the few general dentists in New Jersey who is certified to perform IV sedation.
Dr. Aparna Menon, who studied at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, is a multilingual dentist and serves as a Captain in the US Army Reserves. She’s also a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), the Academy of General Dentistry, the New Jersey Dental Association (NJDA), and the Monmouth-Ocean County Dental Society (M-OCDS).
