Patient Under Sedation in Dental Chair 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

Is sedation dentistry right for you? At Crabapple Dental, we want our patients to feel comfortable at every step of their visit. If this means you need the help of sedation dentistry to feel at ease, please do not hesitate to ask. Sedation dentistry is not reserved for special needs patients or for complex dental procedures. You are welcome to request sedation dentistry during a routine dental cleaning. A positive experience is our goal!

Kim B.

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!

Linda S.

Dr. Roberts and her entire staff are very friendly and professional. Dr. Roberts has a great "bedside manner" and clearly explains what she needs to and why, in a very calming manner. She is a perfectionist in her work, and I can honestly say I've never experienced pain during several crown procedures. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone.

Skyler S.

Every time I walk into Dr. Roberts' office, I feel at home. The establishment is clean and welcoming, and the staff is so friendly! I live in Atlanta, and I still make the trip up to Alpharetta just to go back to Crabapple Dental because I appreciate everything they do so much. They always have the most up to date technology and tools that makes my mouth feel more clean each time I go. Definitely recommend!
