Too many patients avoid visiting the dentist due to dental anxiety. When patients put off coming in for regular check ups they risk developing advanced oral health concerns. The longer you put off going to the dentist, the worse your condition may become. Vassey Dental Partners of Atlanta, GA offers sedation dentistry options to help patients manage their fear of the dentist.
Our team of highly trained and compassionate dentist and staff will make you feel welcomed the moment you walk into our Atlanta dentist office. We work with each patient on an individual basis and spend time explaining the benefits of dental care and how it can improve your health and confidence. If you still feel nervous about receiving dental treatments, your dentist will discuss sedation dentistry options that can put you at total ease during your treatment.
Sedation Dentistry Options
Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, and oral sedation are both options for conscious sedation. Nitrous oxide works immediately and wears off immediately so that patients are able to drive themselves home in most cases. Oral sedation is taken in pill form before your procedure, while you will remain alerted and awake during your procedure, you should plan to have a friend or family member drive you home. Oral sedation can take a few hours to fully wear off. The type of sedation you choose will be dependent on your oral health and personal preference.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry allows patients with anxiety to receive the dental care they deserve. With sedation dentistry, our dentists are able to complete several dental procedures in one sitting and this saves our patients time, money and stress. In many cases, your dentist will be able to restore your smile in just one sitting all while you feel completely relaxed and at ease.
