Do you suffer from anxiety, fear, or general discomfort in the dentist’s chair? We’re here for you! At Cazes Family Dentistry, our team is gentle as can be, but we also recognize that some patients need more help relaxing than others. Some may also have special needs that make it difficult to sit through a dental procedure. In these cases, we recommend sedation dentistry to make procedures more efficient and comfortable.
Our licensed sedation dentists offer a range of sedation dentistry options tailored specifically for each patient’s unique needs. Our dental office is conveniently located for those living and working in the greater Long Valley area, including Hackettstown!
Please note, if you opt for oral conscious sedation or IV sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Make sure you have a friend or family member transport you to and from your appointment.
For mild cases of dental anxiety or for those who have special needs, our sedation dentists may recommend laughing gas. This mild sedative is comfortably administered through a face mask. Generally, you can expect the effects to wear off within minutes of the procedure being completed.
Oral Conscious Sedation
If you require a sedative that is a bit stronger and long-lasting, our sedation dentists may provide you with a prescription for oral conscious sedation. This form of sedation comes in pill-form and, once taken, works quickly to ease your mind and keep you relaxed for hours.
IV Sedation (Sleep Dentistry)
In some cases, intravenous sedation, also known as IV sedation and sleep dentistry, may be offered. IV sedation is advanced sedation reserved for patients who suffer from extreme anxiety or for those who have special medical needs. It may also be offered to patients who are planning to undergo a long or complex dental procedure.
