Sedation Dentistry Midtown Atlanta

Do you experience dental anxiety? Don't worry, you are not alone. A large percentage of the US population has dental fear or phobia. We are here to help work through any reservations you might have with multiple options to make your experience a great one.

Nitrous Oxide

Also known as laughing gas, is the mildest form of sedation. Nitrous oxide is a colorless and odorless gas which helps reduce anxiety and is great for patients requiring a quick recovery time. After inhalation of the gas stops, you will feel normal within minutes. Nitrous typically creates a tingling effect or general sense of well-being and there are no known allergies to nitrous and few if any side effects.

Oral Sedation

The night before your dental appointment you will take a tablet before bedtime and another tablet 1 hour prior to your appointment. You will remain responsive throughout the appointment and appreciate the amnesic effects of the medication. A 2-hour appointment can feel like it only took minutes and you won't remember the sights and sounds associated with a trip to the dentist.

IV Sedation

Moderate or conscious sedation produces a "twilight sleep" and works very well for even the most anxious patients. Medications are administered through an lV which allows for the fastest onset and a very safe procedure. Your blood pressure, pulse, and oxygen levels are continuously monitored, and we can take you to a deeper level of sedation than with other options.

We offer all three options in our office. Please speak to one of our staff members today to see which option will best suit your needs 404.892.3545 or use our Request and Appointment form.

Excellent, always excellent work. I noticed that you are one of Atlanta's best dentists. Why am I not surprised? After all, I've been seeing you for nearly 40 years! It's about time Atlanta noticed. ~anonymous Sep 17, 2015
