An overactive gag reflex can make even routine visits to the dentist very uncomfortable and may be enough to push some people to avoid dental care entirely. However, avoiding dental care is never a good solution, nor is it necessary with the numerous sedation options available at our Bergenfield family dentistry practice.
Sedation dentistry allows people with an overactive gag reflex to become completely relaxed in advance of their treatment. This reduces involuntary reflexes while still allowing for complete consciousness, enabling us to address the problem without rendering you incapable of response. We have found this service to be of great use to a number of our patients and would be happy to discuss your options in greater detail during your next dental appointment.
Dr. Howard Perlmutter is a licensed sedation dentist with years of experience helping people achieve both complete relaxation and optimal oral health and beauty. He welcomes an opportunity to answer your questions about sedation dentistry and to help you determine if this service is suitable for your particular needs.
