If you are nervous about going to the dentist, you might consider sedation dentistry. New Jersey has many dentists who charge exorbitant fees and jump on the bandwagon for invasive surgical procedures that involve sedation dentistry. No wonder people are scared of the dentist! However, Dr. Yanni is an experienced dentist and offers many options besides sedation when you need a dental procedure, and if sedation is necessary you can be sure you are in great hands with Dr. Yanni and his team.

Dr. Yanni and his experienced team have a different approach to dentistry than other area dentists. At the Dental Group of East Brunswick we take a more conservative approach to dentistry, starting with the least invasive procedures. Whether it is general cleanings and maintenance or restorative dentistry, we consider and discuss all possible options with you, so together we can make the best choice for your needs.

Different Types of Sedation Dentistry New Jersey Dentists Use

There are different types of anesthesia used in the dental industry. Local anesthesia is usually a topical numbing agent, and may also mean a shot of Novocain to numb the area. General anesthesia usually involves a semi-conscious state or putting you to sleep throughout the procedure.

Dr. Yanni prefers to be conservative in his treatments and procedures, and only uses general anesthesia in more extreme cases. Whether it is a simple cleaning or a complex treatment, much can be done with just a local anesthetic. This method is one of the many reasons why so many people come to Dr. Yanni in New Jersey. Sedation dentistry needs to be administered carefully and correctly; Dr. Yanni and his experienced staff can set your concerns at ease.

You may have heard that a pill, IV, or nitrous oxide may be involved with sedation dentistry. New Jersey residents who are fearful or anxious about going to the dentist find that one or the other of these methods allow them to relax so that they no longer dread the upcoming procedure. As a result of not tensing up beforehand, patients may feel less pain. In any case, you want to be sure you choose a dentist who is deeply knowledgeable about the proper use of these techniques, and will discuss all options with you and take care in your oral and overall health, as we do here.
