Sedation Dentistry IN MONTCLAIR, NJ

At Montclair Dental Spa, we offer sedation dentistry for patients living in and around the Montclair area. We understand that for millions of adults, visiting the dentist can be an overwhelming or frightening experience due to dental anxiety. This common condition typically starts with a negative experience or becoming fearful of the general idea of dentistry. While common, you do not have to be concerned about visiting our dentist office because we work to ensure your comfort the entire time.

Feel Relaxed With Sedation Dentistry

When you schedule an appointment with us, let us know if you have dental anxiety so that we can prepare for your visit accordingly. For many people, the actual procedure is not uncomfortable but it is the anxiety and worry that causes angst. With this in mind, we often prescribe an oral sedative or laughing gas that can be administered prior to the appointment to help a person relax. While this is not a pain killer, it eases the fear and relaxes the body so that you can remain peaceful while having teeth cleaned, or dental work performed.

Sedation Dentistry and You

At Montclair Dental Spa, we will take the time to get to know you and understand what all of your concerns are prior to making a formal recommendation as to the type of sedation dentistry that you should consider. We will also need to know if you have any other health issues, risks, or are allergic to anything. Typically, if you have responded well to pain medication or sedation in other medical treatments, you will do well with sedation dentistry and not experience any negative side effects. With any type of dental work, it is important to be well informed and make a decision that you feel is best for your health and your goals. As such, we want you to be an informed and educated patient.

Words From Our Patients

imageedit   e

I felt valued and respected. Everyone involved was kind and considerate. I have a lot of bad experiences with dentists and I needed an emergency root canal so I was terrified. Everything was done in a timely fashion and the doctor was very thorough. This is the first dental experience I have had where I felt nothing the entire time and really felt taken care of. I will definitely be going to them as a regular as I can. Thank you to everyone there.

What an awesome experience. My crown broke late at night, I called their office at 8:30 PM on a Thursday night and someone called me right back and got me in for 10:00 AM the next day. The staff and doctors are amazing. I'm like many that hate going to the dentist and they made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. I will be recommending them to all my family and friends. Thank you to the Staff and Doctors at Montclair Dental Spa you are the best.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect from each sedation option?

With oral sedation you will likely feel a bit foggy but relaxed through your treatment, and you will remain awake. For your safety, you will need a friend or family member to accompany you and drive you home after your appointment. It is normal for the sedative effects to last for a few hours after your treatment.  Inhalation sedation, aka laughing gas, will give you a sense of euphoria during your treatment, and you will remain awake and alert.  After your appointment, you will be able to drive yourself home once Dr. Moussa says it is okay.  IV sedation is more pervasive and not confined to that one specific area of the mouth. It is extremely effective and as sedation dentists, we find that many of our patients request this type of medication because they want to ensure that they do not feel anything while having dental work performed. If this is the case, the effect can still wear off fairly quickly after the treatment is over, but we do recommend having a friend or family member drive you home just in case.

How much does sedation dentistry cost?

At Montclair Dental Spa, each of our treatment plans are tailored specifically to the patient. Because of that, we can not give you a typical price for this component of your treatment. We offer a wide variety of financing options and work with many PPO plans, which may cover a portion, if not all, of your dental services. Call us today for your free consultation and to learn more about our financing options.
