Do you have dental anxiety? Does the thought of visiting the dentist make you feel afraid or uncomfortable? If this describes you, you’re not alone.
It’s very common for people to feel anxiety about going to the dentist, and it can even cause people to neglect their oral health. However, our expert sedation dentistry in Roselle Park can take the fear out of receiving dental care and help you feel more at ease.
Sedation dentistry allows your dentist to provide a variety of dental treatments safely and effectively for anyone who experiences anxiety when visiting the dentist. During sedation for dental treatment, your dentist will administer gas or medications to help you feel more comfortable while receiving dental care, and it can be used for many different dental procedures, including oral surgery and even teeth cleaning. Oral sedation dentistry, IV sedation dentistry, and laughing gas are a few examples of the dental sedation treatments available. While more commonly known as sleep dentistry, patients remain awake under dental sedation unless they’re receiving general anesthesia.
Since sleep dentistry is customized to meet individual needs, the exact sedation dentistry cost will vary for each person. The type of dental procedure you receive and which method of sedation is right for you are the main factors that affect your total cost. You may also be eligible for our office’s affordable payment plan, which can help you manage the cost of treatment.
Dental sedation can help you have a positive experience at the dentist’s office, whether you suffer from dental anxiety, have a low pain tolerance, or have a sensitive gag reflex. Call our office to schedule an appointment and learn about the benefits of having sedation dentistry in Roselle Park.

To ensure that all of our patients remain comfortable during their dental procedures, our dentists will help recommend the type of sedation dentistry that will best suit your needs.
Dental sedation offers many benefits to patients, and there are several different types of sedation available that can be customized to meet your needs. One of the main advantages of dental sedation is that it can ease feelings of anxiety and help you feel more relaxed during treatment. Fear of needles is also very common, but dental sedation can ensure that you’re comfortable while sitting in the dentist’s chair. Sedation can also help patients who have a sensitive gag reflex. Sedation dentistry also enables the dentist to perform more than one procedure during an office visit. This means that even if you require extensive dental work, you can receive the care you need in fewer visits.
Dental sedation may be covered by your insurance plan if it’s considered a medical necessity, such as requiring anesthesia. However, if sedation isn’t necessary for the administration of dental treatment, many insurance companies won’t cover the cost of sedation. For this reason, we recommend speaking with your provider about whether sedation dentistry insurance is included in your coverage.
Your ability to drive home after receiving sedation for dental treatment is affected by which type of sedation you receive during your procedure. The effects of laughing gas, for example, subside quickly, so it’s likely you’ll be able to drive home after your appointment. Since IV sedation dentistry and oral sedation can make you feel sleepy and groggy for several hours or longer, it’s not safe for patients to drive. It’s recommended to have a friend or family member drive you home if you’re receiving these forms of dental sedation.
With sedation dentistry in Roselle Park, it’s possible to receive high-quality dental care without fear and anxiety. For more information about dental sedation, we encourage you to contact our office.
