Our Atlanta West Dentistry team in Marietta, GA knows dental visits can be quite scary for some people, but our sedation dentistry options can definitely help!Rhonda on using IV sedation to help her with dental anxiety Read Transcript
I had been to several dentists and had a lot of really bad experiences. Because of that, I had such an intense fear, that I stopped going altogether. But then I had a broken tooth, and I went to a regular dentist. He was like, “No, you're going to have to go to a specialist.” The two dentists that I saw referred me here and said that he could take care of me.
For me, because of the intense phobia that I have, three days before my visit, I typically will start throwing up, and then when I get here, if I make it far. Then I just have a lot of problems, and they're not able to successfully do anything. The sedation made it to where I got my teeth cleaned. I got my tooth taken care of that had been broken, and I'm not so scared that I didn't make my next appointment for my other teeth to be fixed.
I want to get my teeth whitened, and now I can do that. I can smile with my head up. I mean, I'm getting older, and I like having a nice smile. Now I can see that can be for me, thanks to this dentistry.
This staff, they don't treat me like, “Oh, you're just being a baby. You're an adult. You need to act like an adult.” They treat me as though they believe me, and I don't have to say anything. They just believe me. That makes me feel more comfortable. It's just so much nicer and comfortable. It's like a darn family here. I love it.
If you suffer from dental anxiety like so many others, it can become even more intimidating when you need dental care. Sometimes, patients will deal with prolonged dental pain for fear of enduring more pain during treatment!
Our team at Atlanta West Dentistry in Marietta, GA proves that dentistry does not have to be scary. In fact, it can be a relaxing, enjoyable experience. Our doctors and staff are here to help calm your fears. We offer three types of sedation dentistry options that are specifically designed to help you feel at ease during treatment.
Our sedation dentistry options can benefit you in many ways, including:
- Relieving your dental anxiety so you don’t fear future appointments
- Helping you fully relax and feel more comfortable during treatment
- Getting several procedures done in one visit for your convenience
- Helping scared children feel more at ease while they receive treatment
Let’s discuss the three types of sedation dentistry options we offer and how they can help you. Call 770-744-4619 to contact our Marietta, GA dentist office with any questions or schedule a complimentary consultation!
Relax With Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Nitrous oxide sedation is the least intense and invasive form of sedation options that we offer, and it’s even a great option for kids.
This type of sedation is commonly known as “laughing gas.” Administered by one of our highly trained doctors, nitrous oxide allows you to inhale the gas right before the procedure. This helps you relax and feel at ease during treatment.
Soothe Your Nerves Before Your Visit With Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation is the next step up from nitrous oxide. Dental oral sedation is administered – you guessed it – orally! You’ll take it right before your treatment. While you will be fully conscious and aware during the procedure, you will be extremely comfortable.
Snooze During Treatment With IV Sedation
This is our highest level of sedation and allows you to be completely asleep during more complicated procedures, such as restorative dentistry. When you wake up, you will not be able to recall the sights, smells, or sounds of the procedure.
We have a specially designed surgical sedation suite where our IV sedation equipment is set up. The suite features a plush, comfortable dental chair, a dedicated restroom, an outside exit, and privacy from the rest of the office.
