There is no reason to be stressed about needing dental treatments when you join our dental family at Creative Dentistry & Medspa. Our dental team will ensure you are comfortable and relaxed during your visits. For those who need extra help feeling at ease, we offer sedation dentistry. Whether you suffer from dental anxiety or have a sensitive gag reflex, we have sedation options to ensure you are calm and relaxed during your dental treatments at our advanced dental center in Sandy Springs, GA.
Oral Conscious Sedation
Many patients experience fear or anxiety before dental appointments. Others may have difficulty relaxing during invasive dental procedures. Oral conscious sedation is an option for many of our patients who want to be in a deeply relaxed state during their dental treatment. Oral conscious sedation uses an oral sedative that our dentist will prescribe before your appointment. You will be awake during your procedure, but very relaxed and comfortable while we perform your dental work. Oral conscious sedation does require that you have someone to drive you home, as you will not be able to operate a vehicle for a few hours.
Laughing gas, or nitrous oxide, is a common and safe sedation method for those with mild to moderate dental anxiety or other special needs. Nitrous oxide has been used for many decades for sedation dentistry. While you are breathing in the gas, you will feel a sense of euphoria that will keep you relaxed and calm. Once your dental treatment is completed and you begin breathing in fresh air again, the sedative effects quickly dissipate. You can safely drive home after using nitrous oxide, which makes this a popular option for sedation.
Your comfort is important to us at Creative Dentistry & Medspa. We offer sedation dentistry to ensure all our patients can safely receive the dental care they need. If you are interested in learning more about sedation dentistry options, contact our dental practice in Sandy Springs.
