Anesthesia Choices in Bernardsville

Bernardsville Dentist Serving Morristown, Basking Ridge, Mendham, Chester, and Far Hills, NJ

For many dental procedures, patients can choose from one of the following types of anesthesia:

  • Local anesthetics: administered by injection and used in general dentistry for procedures like fillings or extractions.
  • Nitrous oxide or “laughing gas”: an inhaled anesthesia used in cases where the patient needs more relaxation beyond local anesthesia.
  • Conscious sedation combined with local anesthetics: a patient receives medication that creates a drowsy and relaxed feeling, after which a local anesthetic is used.
  • General anesthesia: a medication used to place the patient into a deep sleep.

What to Expect Following Dental Implant Surgery

With any type of surgery, you will likely experience some discomfort, including:

  • Pain at the implant or surgery site
  • Minor bleeding
  • Bruising of your skin and gums
  • Swelling of your gums and face
  • To minimize any possible discomfort, you will want to follow all your surgeon’s post-operative instructions.

After a thorough, painfree cleaning by the dental hygienist (Karima), Dr. Patti repaired a molar for me. The injection and filling were painless and she explained everything throughout the process. The entire staff is professional and friendly. Best ever dental experience for someone with dental anxiety.The office very recently underwent renovation and it’s gorgeous.

I always love going to see Dr. Patty and her team. I even met an intern, Paul who is looking to attend Dental School. What a great job giving this young man experience.

Dr. Patti and her staff are the best. She is very skillful and knowledgeable. She spends time to explain what needs to be done and to answer all questions. She is also a perfectionist who will take as much time as is needed to get the best results for her patients. Her office is state of the art and the staff is also knowledgeable and courteous.
