Implant dentist in Newark area offers IV and oral conscious sedation for procedures
The idea of having an implant placed can be a scary idea for patients in and around the community of Newark. Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta understand that many dental procedures can make patients think twice about having work done. However, it is important for patients to understand that our procedures are done with proper anesthetics and sedation. We want our patients to be relaxed and comfortable before and during their procedure, so we offer the proper treatment options for new and existing patients of our practice.
At the Center for Implant Dentistry, we offer both IV sedation and oral conscious sedation.
IV sedation uses an anesthetic that is administered through an IV directly into the bloodstream. It can act quickly and for many people, causes them to fall asleep. Not only does this make the procedure more comfortable for patients but it also helps them stay still enough for the procedure to be done correctly. Many patients prefer this, as they do not need to be awake and will not be aware of the procedure being performed.
Another option is oral conscious sedation. This medication is prescribed to the patient before their appointment. Approximately one to two hours before they visit their dental team, they take the pill orally. Once administered, patients are advised to have someone else transport them even though they are awake. Patients arrive at the practice for their procedure and are able to walk, talk, and answer questions just like they normally would. They can follow instructions throughout the procedure. Afterwards, they are transported back home to rest and will typically awaken without any recollection of their dental visit, but have their procedure completed!
