The Help You Need: Sedation Dentistry in Atlanta

Dental anxiety affects millions of Americans. For some people it’s so strong that they avoid going to the dentist altogether. That might seem rational enough: why do something when you know it’s going to upset you? The problem with that, of course, is that by doing so you put your dental health at risk. Sedation dentistry from Flax Dental in Atlanta can help.

The reasons some people get anxious just thinking about a checkup and cleaning include having sharp scrapers in their mouths, and the fear of injections. We take these concerns seriously.

As a solution, we provide oral conscious sedation. It involves taking a sedative called Triazolam, in pill form, about an hour before your scheduled procedure. It does not usually make patients sleep, but it will make you very drowsy. You won’t be very aware of what’s going on around you, and will need a ride home afterward.

Skipping the dentist puts your dental health at risk. Sedation dentistry is valuable, because it can get you here when your instincts may be to skip your appointment, or not even make one. Better to have a little help getting through a procedure than getting a mouth full of cavities, or worse.

Don’t let anxiety prevent you from getting the dental treatment you need. Make an appointment with Flax Dental in Atlanta today. We provide restorative and cosmetic dentistry, including popular procedures like teeth whitening. Make an appointment with us today.
