Relax with Sedation Dentistry in Buckhead

Did you know nearly 75% of adults in the U.S. have some fear of going to the dentist? In fact, fear of the dentist is so common that there are two names for it—odontophobia and dentophobia!

There are many reasons behind a fear of the dentist in Buckhead:

  • A personal traumatic or painful experience
  • Impersonal, uncaring dentists
  • Mass media (movies, TV)
  • A perception that you’re helpless or don’t have control

No matter why you’re nervous about going to the dentist, there’s a solution. If pre-visit anxiety is making you avoid the dentist completely, we can help by prescribing a medication for you to take prior to your visit. Sedation dentistry in Atlanta can help you relax, and you can either let yourself sleep through your appointment, or be awake enough to interact with Dr. Davis and your Buckhead dental team.

If you’re still anxious when you arrive for your appointment, we can also use nitrous oxide – laughing gas – to help you relax even more and help diminish any potential pain as well. The American Dental Association has approved these sedation dental therapies. They’re completely safe, but you will want someone to accompany you to the appointment and drive you home.

By being relaxed before your treatment, any local anesthetic will be that much more effective at blocking any possible pain.

Call our Buckhead dental office at 404.255.7500 to schedule an appointment and talk to us about your fears of going to the dentist. We can talk to you ahead of time about how we can help and plan ahead for your appointment.
