Sedation Dentistry

IV (Intravenous) sedation dentistry at Veenstra Family Dental in Midland Park is a great option to consider if you are unable to receive dental treatment due to fear, pain, or physical/mental limitations. Referred to as “sleep or twilight dentistry,” the medications we use for sedation relieve anxiety, produce drowsiness, and offer an amnesic effect. Our Midland Park, NJ sedation dentistry team can provide a relaxed, comfortable, and pain-free dental experience for you. Most of the procedures we offer can be done using sedation dentistry. Now you can enjoy your visits to the dentist!

Is IV Sedation safe?

IV sedation dentistry in Midland Park, NJ is a safe and efficient method of relaxation for dental patients. As with any other medical procedure certain pre-requisites must be fulfilled to ensure the safety of the IV sedation procedure. Choosing a well trained, experienced and properly licensed IV sedation dentist is the main step for IV sedation safety.

While almost any patient can qualify and benefit from IV sedation, dental sedation best addresses the following conditions:

  • Dental fear or anxiety
  • Sore jaw muscles
  • Sensitive gag reflex
  • Difficulty numbing with local anesthetic
  • Back or neck pain
  • Pain sensitivity
  • Difficulty controlling movement
  • Previous traumatic dental experiences
  • Discomfort sitting for long periods of time

Am I a candidate for IV sedation?

IV sedation is not for everyone. At your consultation appointment, we will review your medical history, recommended dental treatment, your anxiety level, and other factors that may influence your suitability for sedation. We will take all of this into consideration and agree upon an approach that is right for you.
