Overcoming Dental Fear

At Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry, Dr. Raj Upadya and our dental care team understand how stressful it may be for some patients to visit the dentist. Dental fear and anxiety can deter patients from visiting the dentist, which may lead to poor oral health. Our goal at Esthetic Dental is to provide patients with a relaxing and comfortable environment where they can safely receive the treatment they need. Dr. Upadya works with each patient on a one on one basis to develop a treatment plan that addresses all their dental needs. If you are suffering from dental fear or anxiety, visit Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry. Our dental care team offers compassionate, personalized dental care to help patients with dental fear feel at home.

Sedation Dentistry in East Hanover, NJ

Providing a safe, comfortable environment is important to our team at Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry. Depending on your needs, Dr. Upadya may suggest using sedation dentistry to help you feel comfortable during your treatment. Sedation dentistry is a great tool to use for patients who suffer from dental fear, need more than one treatment, have a strong gag reflex, and for patients with sensitive teeth. Dr. Upadya offers oral conscious sedation in our East Hanover dental office. During oral conscious sedation, patients will feel relaxed during their treatment and patients will also be able to communicate with their dentist if need be. Ultimately, patients will not feel any pain or discomfort during their treatment. During your visit, Dr. Upadya will determine if sedation dentistry is right for you.

For patients who need a local anesthetic, Dr. Upadya uses a system referred to as The Wand. The Wand allows Dr. Upadya to carefully and safely administer local anesthetic without the use of a needle. Many patients have a fear of needles which makes it difficult for them to receive a local anesthetic. With computerized controlled anesthetic, Dr. Upadya can deliver a local anesthetic slowly and pain-free.

At Metropolitan Center for Complete Dentistry in East Hanover, NJ, we care about our patients, and we believe that each patient should have access to the dental care they need. We work closely with each of our patients to improve their smile in a safe, comfortable, and relaxing atmosphere.
