Sleep vs. Sedation Dentistry

Oradell Dentist Serving Bergenfield, Dumont, and Oradell, New Jersey

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. Sedation dentistry is safe for most patients, but your medical history will need to be evaluated to determine which type of sedation is right for you. Dr. Perlmutter is an experienced, licensed, and highly qualified sedation dentist. He would be happy to meet with you to discuss your options and help you determine which type of sedation is best for your needs. Sedation Dentistry at Dumont Cosmetic Dental Dr. Perlmutter offers two types of sedation:

  • Oral sedation
  • Nitrous sedation

Both of these options are capable of producing complete relaxation and are significantly safer than IV sedation. If you would like to learn more about these types of sedations or have any questions about which options can best serve you, Dr. Perlmutter would be happy to meet with you for a sedation dentistry consultation.
