Is sedation dentistry right for me?
Our team is likely to recommend sedation dentistry for patients from Eatonton, GA and surrounding areas who fit into any of the following categories:
- If you struggle with severe feelings of nervousness or anxiety when faced with upcoming dental treatment
- If you have a low tolerance for pain and/or highly sensitive teeth
- If you struggle with sitting still comfortably for long periods of time
- If you have a strong gag reflex
- If you’re in need of multiple complex dental procedures and would prefer to complete them in a single visit
How does oral conscious sedation work?
Our doctors have studied sedation dentistry at some of the most prestigious dental education institutions in the country, and patients can feel safe with us throughout the process. It’s simple – we will provide a prescription for an oral sedative that should be taken at a predetermined time before your appointment is set to begin. Once you’ve arrived, our team members will help you settle down comfortably in the treatment chair and get ready for your procedure. While sedated, patients will still be awake and able to respond to commands while feeling deeply calm and at ease. Many don’t even remember much about their visit once it’s complete, which can be ideal!
Patients undergoing oral sedation will need to arrange for a trusted friend or family member to accompany them to and from our Greensboro office.
