Keeping You Comfortable: Sedation Dentistry in Atlanta
- Posted on: Apr 13 2018
At Flax Dental in Atlanta, we make a conscious effort to help our patients feel comfortable. We recognize that many suffer from dental anxiety, which is why we offer sedation dentistry.
Fear of the dentist is far more common than you might realize, and is certainly nothing to be ashamed of. While many people look at visiting the dentist as a necessary evil, others are filled with dread and anxiety. About fifteen percent of the American public have some degree of dental anxiety.
At Flax Dental, we provide those patients with oral sedation. A medication called Triazolam is taken shortly before your appointment. It puts you into a deeply relaxed state. Afterward you’ll think you were asleep, but you won’t be. You will be indifferent to what is going on around you.
Though the sedation dentistry we practice is perfectly safe, we take the added precaution of having a trained professional monitor your vital signs throughout your procedure. When it’s over, you’ll need to have someone there to drive you home.
If you have postponed dental treatment for any reason, we encourage you to give sedation dentistry at Flax Dental a try. Neglecting your oral health has serious consequences. We practice cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and are a mercury-free, holistic practice.
