Patients can request to be sedated during their dental procedures at Advanced Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Alpharetta, GA.
We offer three levels of sedation:
1) Nitrous Oxide (also called “laughing gas”): this is a mild sedation to reduce anxiety or fear. This is a great option if you need a quick recovery after your appointment. The effects can be reversed within minutes.
2) Oral Sedation: you will swallow a safe, tiny pill that will calm your nerves and anxiety, allowing our dentists to perform multiple procedures during one appointment. You won’t have much memory of the appointment, but you’ll receive the dental work you need and deserve.
3) IV Sedation (also called “conscious sedation” or “twilight sedation”): with this fact-acting, safe form of sedation, you are awake during your appointment, but you won’t feel anxiety, fear or pain…plus you’ll barely remember anything while at the dental office.
With IV sedation, you’ll be completely relaxed, feeling at ease during your appointment, plus you’ll have a quick recovery from the sedation. That means your 1.5-hour appointment may only seem like 25 minutes!
IV sedation is oftentimes the best sedation method for dental phobic patients.
