Fear of Dentist Florham Park NJ
Millions of Americans avoid the dentist because of fear and anxiety, preventing them from receiving the dental care they need. Routine visits to the dentist are very important for the health of not just your mouth, but your body. Tooth decay, plaque build up, and gum disease are all linked to serious health risks like heart disease and diabetes.
Visiting the dentist doesn’t have to be painful or stressful. Dr. Raj Upadya offers a range of options to help you feel comfortable and relaxed during treatment including sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry is one way that we help patients feel calm during treatment. Using oral conscious sedation, patients are awake, yet relaxed, allowing them to undergo procedures that would make them otherwise apprehensive.
Sedation dentistry is safe and effective. It works by calming the nerves that transmit fear and anxiety. Sedation dentistry is administered under strict guidance of Dr. Upadya and patients are closely monitored during treatment. Though patients are fully awake during the procedure, they often say they felt like they slept through treatment.
Dr. Upadya also offers painless injections using The Wand computerized anesthetic technology. One of the most common fears of visiting the dentist is over needles and injections. The very sight of a needle can put patients on edge. The Wand looks like a ball point pen and it delivers a very slow and controlled dose of anesthesia for a pain free experience.
Drill Less Technology
The sound of a dental drill is another source of anxiety for patients. Dr. Upadya uses some of the most advanced technology including radiosurgery, laser dentistry, and the Icon drill-less filling mechanism to reduce or eliminate the need for a traditional dental drill.
We believe that patients should be an active participant in their oral health. We take time to listen to each patient and explain their treatment options as well as the details of the procedure. Having a knowledge or understanding of the treatment helps many patients to feel more relaxed and calm.
Our staff will make sure that you have complete pre- and post-treatment instructions so that you know exactly what to expect before, during and after your procedure.
Same Day Dentistry
Your time is valuable. No one wants to make more visits to the dentist than they need to. Dr. Upadya uses E4D technology which allows him to create high quality porcelain restorations in his dental office for same day treatment. A significant number of cases can be treated using this technology including porcelain veneers, porcelain dental fillings and porcelain dental crowns.
