Are you one of the millions of people that realizes just how important regular dental check ups are, but you absolutely HATE to go to the dentist due to dental anxiety or fear?
Dr. Michael Mulkey offers sedation dentistry in his Marietta dentist office, enabling patients with dental anxiety to relax and feel comfortable and confident during their dental treatments. In many cases, patients can receive multiple treatments in one visit while they are completely relaxed and under sedation. We make every effort to help you feel comfortable, from pillows and warm blankets to headphones for listening to your choice of music or tv show.
Why Choose Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry is a fantastic solution for anyone that suffers from anxiety about going to the dentist. In addition, anyone that has put off receiving critical dental care for years and now faces a lengthy list of necessary treatments would definitely benefit from sedation dentistry as it would allow the person to receive multiple treatments at once.
Sedation dentistry is also appropriate for anyone that suffers from the following dental anxieties:
- A fear of needles
- Doesn’t like the sound of drills
- Has had a bad experience with dentists previously
- Has trouble getting numb
- Has sensitive teeth
- Suffers from acute or chronic soreness of the jaw
Oral Conscious Sedation
Administered in pill form, oral conscious sedation allows patients to be in control of all body functions while feeling completely relaxed during treatment. Dr. Mulkey will discuss your medical history and what to expect with the use of oral sedation prior to your treatment. The majority of patients will have no memory of their procedure afterwards, but will need to arrange for transportation home as it can take some time to wear off completely.
If you have questions about oral conscious sedation, contact our office or discuss your concerns during a consultation with Dr. Mulkey or Dr. Hildreth.
