Offering sedation dentistry to residents in Acworth, GA and the surrounding areas, Acworth Center for Family Dentistry aims to make your visit to our dental practice as painless as possible. We understand that attending an appointment for general or specialized dental services can cause some patients to feel anxiety. Therefore, our team of skilled sedation dentists offers a variety of sleep dentistry services to ease your fears and to make your visit as comfortable as possible. But sedation dentistry is not just for patients who experience intense fear and anxiety – these treatments are available for patients of all ages who can benefit from its relaxing properties; for example, patients undergoing lengthy treatments or those who cannot be numbed by local anesthesia alone.
There are numerous benefits to sedation dentistry, including:
- Reduced anxiety
- Reduced pain during dental procedures
- Mental relaxation
Many patients prefer the benefits of sleep dentistry when undergoing cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, and oral surgery. Have questions about our procedures or want to make an appointment to meet with our experienced sedation dentists? Call (770) 203-1711 or schedule an appointment online!
Our Acworth Sedation Dentists offer a Variety of Options
We are proud to have a team of highly-skilled sedation dentists at Acworth Center for Family Dentistry who provide a variety of sleep and/or sedation dentistry procedures, including:
IV conscious sedation dentistry:
During this procedure, patients do not fall asleep; they experience deep relaxation and are aware of their surroundings. Most patients typically recover in approximately 30 minutes; however, they will experience drowsiness and should arrange for transportation to and from their appointments.
This treatment, also known as “laughing gas,” blends oxygen and nitrous oxide gases administered by our experienced sedation dentists to patients via a mask placed over the nose, providing a deep feeling of calm and relaxation after just a few breaths. This procedure increases the pain threshold, and patients remain relaxed and fully-conscious during their appointments.
Oral conscious sedation dentistry:
This type of sedation dentistry is administered to patients who experience intense anxiety, but do not require IV sedation. Patients take a prescribed medication that will relax them prior to their visit. Please note that this is not a form of “sleep dentistry,” as patients will remain awake after taking this oral sedative, although they will experience a feeling of deep calm during treatment.
To further your relaxation, our state-of-the-art treatment rooms are equipped with blankets, pillows, and conveniently-located HD TVs on the ceiling. Your visit to the dentist can be as painless and as worry-free as setting up your next appointment!
