Overcoming Dental Anxiety

dental anxietyWe understand that a large amount of the population has a fear of the dentist. With a little bit of teamwork and just a touch of dedication, patients can overcome their dental anxiety. Visiting the dentist regularly for preventive care visits is an important step in taking charge of your oral health. So we make adjustments for patients with dental anxiety to ensure they get the treatment they need in an environment they are comfortable in. We offer amenities like warm blankets, music, and television to help put your mind at ease during your treatment. If patients require sedation treatment during their procedure, Marietta dentists Dr. Michael Mulkey and Dr. David Hildreth of Lost Mountain Dental offer a few options to keep you relaxed during their treatment.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

  • Pain free
  • Feel relaxed and comfortable during the procedure
  • Helps patients with dental anxiety complete necessary treatment
  • Still able to interact with dentist during treatment
  • Dentist is able to work efficiently during treatment

Sedation can also benefit patients who have a strong gag reflex, sensitive teeth, and difficulty sitting still. Dr. Mulkey or Dr. Hildreth will work with you and go over you dental history, any fears, and your treatment plan. Going to the dentist doesn’t have to be scary, especially when your being seen by a trusted dental practice.

Sedation Dentistry in Marietta, GA

In our practice, we offer Oral Conscious Sedation. Oral conscious sedation is administered through a pill and allows patients to feel relaxed during their procedure. Although the patients are awake for the procedure, they usually do not remember anything from the surgery. Some patients even report feeling like they were in a deep sleep.

This form of sedation takes a few hours to completely wear off, so patients will need to organize a ride home after their procedure.
