What is Dental Anxiety?
Dental fear and anxiety is a common dental concern amongst patients of all ages. Dental anxiety and fear can negatively impact your oral health, leading to the development of advanced dental problems when regular dental care is avoided for a length of time. Dr. David Srikureja and our Montclair Plaza dental care team are committed to helping our patients achieve a healthier smile through compassionate, individualized dental care.
What If I Haven’t Been To The Dentist In A While?
Whether you visit the dentist regularly or you haven’t visited the dentist in years, we encourage patients to visit our Montclair Plaza dental office. We offer a full range of general, cosmetic, and restorative dental care services to enhance your smile. We create a judgment-free environment where patients feel comfortable expressing any fear or anxiety they may have. Our goal is to help each patient feel comfortable, relaxed, and empowered during their visit to our Montclair Plaza dental office.
What Are My Dental Sedation Options?
Dr. Srikureja will consult with you one on one to determine which sedation dentistry method best suits your needs and is safest for your overall physical health. We will review your medical history, examine your teeth, and discuss your preferred method to determine the right solution for you prior to your procedure so that you know what to expect.
We offer conscious sedation methods in our Montclair Plaza dental office.
- Oral Conscious Sedation: is administered through a pill. Patients say needs to take the pill an hour before their appointment. Patients will need to coordinate a safe ride to and from our Montclair Plaza dental office.
- Nitrous oxide: commonly known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is administered through a small nasal mask. Patients often report feeling relaxed and having no recollection of their treatment. The effects of the gas diminish once the mask is removed.
Feel safe with Dr. Srikureja as we will make sure that your dental experience is a pleasant one.
