THERE IS NO REASON FOR YOU TO EXPERIENCE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT DURING DENTAL PROCEDURES AND TREATMENTS, NO MATTER HOW INVOLVED THE PROCESS.
In order to make your dental experience more comfortable and stress-free,
GENERAL DENTISTRY OF TOMS RIVER OFFERS THE USE OF CONSCIOUS ISEDATION (I.V. SEDATION) FOR ANY DENTAL PROCEDURE.
CONSCIOUS SEDATION IS ACHIEVED THROUGH THE INTRAVENOUS ADMINISTRATION OF SEDATION MEDICATION, MUCH LIKE AN ENDOSCOPY. YOU WILL UNDERGO THE TREATMENT UNAWARE OF THE PROCESS AND COMPLETELY PAIN FREE.
The Advantages of Conscious Sedation
Conscious Sedation as Part of your Procedure
Before your actual treatment begins, the appropriate medications will be administered intravenously. Blood pressure, heart rate and breathing are monitored continuously. Additional medications can be given as needed throughout your procedure, so there is little chance for pain or discomfort to occur.
Other Options for Sedation
Some individuals may require general anesthesia due to medical problems or mental or physical handicaps. These patients can be accommodated through our affiliation with the dental outpatient unit of Monmouth Medical Center or our in-office Medical Anesthesiologist
Additional options for dental sedation include nitrous oxide and oral sedation.
How to Prepare for Treatment Day
There's no need to worry, since your procedure will be pain free. Try to get adequate rest the night before your visit, and be sure to follow these instructions carefully.
