Sleep vs. Sedation Dentistry

Sleep dentistry involves heavy sedation that renders a patient unconscious. Most often this is accomplished by medications delivered intravenously. IV sedation requires constant monitoring of vitals and can, in some cases, be much more than the patient needs. Bergen County sedation dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter does not offer IV sedation. Sedation dentistry allows a patient to become completely comfortable and anxiety free while remaining conscious enough to respond to basic directions.
