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!

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

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!!
