At Peak Family Dentistry, we understand dental phobia and anxiety and always work hard to create a comfortable and relaxing environment for our patients.
Our dentists in Hackensack, NJ are also well-trained and experienced with nitrous oxide and oral sedation when necessary. Nitrous oxide is a relaxation gas delivered through a small nose mask. The effects wear off when the mask is removed, making it okay for patients to drive themselves home.
Also, Dr. Heaney is a board-certified dental anesthesiologist and capable of administering IV sedation in our dental office when indicated. For those who need more invasive dental treatments or have a special need, our Hackensack dentists have operating room privileges at Hackensack Meridian's Hackensack University Medical Center.
It is essential to have a friend or family member drive you to your dental procedure if you opt for sedation. It is also important not to make any life decisions or operate machinery or a vehicle on the day of sedation.
Our dentists want you to feel relaxed and at ease every time you visit our dental office. If you have a particular phobia, general anxiety, or an issue that requires a specialized approach, we encourage you to contact a member of our dental team today.
