Reasons To Ask For Sedation Dentistry

Patient in Dental Chair Under Sedation Alpharetta GA

Are you avoiding the dentist because the thought of sitting in the dental chair makes your heart race? You are certainly not alone. Many Americans suffer from some degree of dental anxiety or dental fear. Whether you have a severe paranoia or mild aversion to being at a dental office, there is a solution you should know about called sedation dentistry. In fact, sedation dentistry can allow even the most anxious patients to receive the dental care their mouth and body needs for optimal health. Remember that neglected dental appointments can lead to painful oral problems, an unsightly smile and even threats to your body’s overall health.

Sedation dentistry can involve taking a prescribed pill before you arrive or breathing in a colorless gas known as nitrous oxide (laughing gas) during your procedure. In either case, you should know that you won’t be “put under” or “totally out of it.” You may not remember your procedure and will certainly be fully relaxed, but you should still be able to communicate with your dentist when and if you want.

Here are some common reasons why patients ask for sedation during your next procedure.

  • Makes the appointment go by faster
  • Unbothered by dental needles or sounds such as dental drill or scraping tools
  • Allows multiple treatments to be done in one visit
  • Helps you sit still and relax despite a medical condition or physical limitation
  • Changes your perspective about dental care

I've been going to Dr. Roberts for a couple of years now (after a long period of not going to any dentist), and she has helped to bring my quickly developing periodontal disease under control. The staff is always professional and friendly there and they constantly use the most up to date technology. Great dentist! Aaron A.
Dr Roberts and her staff always go the extra mile for their clients. I can't say it's ever really fun to go to the dentist, but she's outstanding and really cares about helping you have a heathy mouth, not just pretty teeth. Jeremy R.
Dr. Sarah Roberts and her team (all of them) have given me the best experience I have had with a dental office. I have moved around a bit and out of the 4 offices I have gone to in the last 15 years, this is by far the best. I highly recommend. Ryan D.
