Your physical and emotional well-being is extremely important to our Parsippany dental team. If you feel nervous, you are not alone. Our gentle and caring dentists are here to ensure that you feel completely relaxed throughout your appointment.
We offer a number of ways to help our patients relax. All invasive procedures are done under local anesthesia.
For those with mild anxiety, our movie goggles and Netflix will help keep you distracted and entertained while we look after your oral health.
For patients who have anxiety, we can offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation.
Nitrous oxide is a gas that you inhale through a small nose mask. It enters the system quickly and produces a relaxed sense of wellbeing. Many people prefer this mild dental sedation because once we stop administering the gas, it leaves your system quickly, and you can go about your day.
Oral sedation is a longer-lasting form of sedation that requires a full medical history to determine if the prescription medication is right for you. Oral sedation will take some time to wear off, so you will need a driver to take you home from your appointment and you should take it easy until the next morning.
