Sedation Dentistry

There are many patients that fear a visit to the dentist.  Dr. Oliverie is fully aware of this fact and has specifically trained to offer sedation dentistry services to her patients.  This is a form of dentistry that allows you to get the majority of your dental work completed in fewer visits.

Oliverie Dental offers two levels of sedation dentistry. For minor procedures oral medication is taken that essentially takes the edge off. You are put into a light twilight that takes away any and all fears you would have during a traditional visit.  The sounds, smells and noises are no longer a factor.

For more complex restorative and dental surgery, Oliverie Dental arranges for the services of Dr. Glen Atlas. Dr. Atlas, a board certified anesthesiologist with over 12 years experience, offers our dental patients IV sedation for their dental procedures. Patients receive “conscious sedation” or “twilight sleep.” Patients have little, if any, recall of the dental procedure. Patients have been delighted with “waking up” and having their dental procedure over.

Dr. Atlas is an associate professor, in the department of anesthesiology, at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. He has produced 28 publications and has developed and patented state-of-the-art medical equipment. He has also received several research grants, and is also an adjunct member of the graduate faculty of Rutgers University Department of Biomedical Engineering.

Please visit Dr. Atlas’s website at www.glenatlasmd.com to learn more about Dr. Atlas and his impressive list of credentials, articles in medical journals and patient information on his services.

If you have dental anxiety, nervousness, or phobia about dental treatment sedation dentistry may be a good fit for your needs. If you have questions about sedation dentistry, please contact Oliverie Dental for more information.
