Does the thought of a dental visit make your heart race and your palms sweaty? You may have dental anxiety, but you aren’t alone. Many of our happy, satisfied clients once had the fear of the dentist. However, when they discovered sedation dentistry, it has all been a comfortable dental experience in our office. Like they did, you, too, can get past dental fears by exploring our sedation dental care options.
If you are in Alpharetta, Georgia, please schedule an appointment with the Atlanta Center for Dental Health. Drs. Bradley Hepler and Roy McDonald will help you achieve comfortable and relaxed dental care. Drs. Bradley Hepler and Roy McDonald have helped so many people from Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Roswell, Johns Creek, Milton, Cumming and all of the surrounding communities.
Several dental sedation types exist, but we prefer oral sedation because of its versatility and ease of use. Using this sedation, you simply take an oral pill about an hour before your appointment time. By the time we are working on you, you’ll be sedated head to toe, allowing you to undergo dental procedures without fidgeting or feeling anxious.
The beauty of this sedation is that you remain awake to respond to our instructions. You’ll be deeply relaxed to the point of dozing off, but it only takes a little nudge to arouse you from your “twilight” sleep.
What’s more, oral sedation makes you lose track of time. This way, you can undergo lengthy procedures and feel like it only took minutes! As if that isn’t enough, the oral pill numbs your senses, so you’ll have little to no recollection of the dental smell, noises, etc. In general, you’ll remember very little about your procedure, if at all!
If you have been avoiding the dentist due to dental fear, you can now enjoy dentistry again. Sedation dentistry calms your nerves as we work on you, resulting in a comfortable dental experience.
The benefits of oral sedation include:
Dental sedation makes you feel relaxed, but you’ll feel out of it. Ensure that someone accompanies you to and from our office because the sedation effects don’t leave your body immediately. Similarly, don’t drive or operate machinery until after 24 hours, when your alertness is restored.
