Overcoming Dental Anxiety

Posted .

Do you feel stressed, nervous, or even anxious leading up to or during dental visits? You are not alone! Many people feel some degree of dental anxiety. Some are so nervous that they even avoid going to the dentist altogether. Here at Jones Bridge Dental Care, our dentist and team are happy to work with you to ensure your comfort and ease during your appointments. That is why we offer sedation dentistry in Alpharetta, Georgia. There are several types of sedation available. Speak with Dr. Leo Eliezer to find out which option is best for you.

Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide, which is commonly called laughing gas, is a very common form of dental sedation. This form of sedation will not put you to sleep, but will reduce your anxiety. Nitrous oxide will wear off quickly after your dental appointment and you will be able to drive yourself home.

Oral Sedation
With oral sedation, you are given a pill to take before your appointment to relax you. The dosage can vary, as can the level of sedation. As with nitrous oxide, you will be awake during your procedure, but not nervous.

We encourage you to contact our office at 678-813-1634 today to learn more about sedation dentistry and to schedule your next visit. We are happy to serve you in a comfortable environment.
