Are You A Candidate for Sedation Dentistry? Atlanta, GA
Patient Under Sedation in Dentist Chair

While modern technology and technique have drastically improved professional dental care, we realize that there is still a notable population of patients who are fearful about going to the dentist. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to retain optimal oral health and avoid the dental office altogether. If you are ignoring dental pain or putting off your routine cleanings due to fear or anxiety, it is important that you consider sedation dentistry.

Sedation dentistry is a method of administering a controlled amount of sedative medicine before or during a dental procedure in order to create a calm and relaxing experience for the patient. It does not “put you to sleep” like general anesthesia. Rather, many patients remain awake, able to communication and in a peaceful state of mind.

Sedation dentistry can involve breathing in a colorless gas during your procedure (nitrous oxide inhalation) or taking a sedative pill before you arrive to your appointment (oral sedation). Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, is among the most popular form of sedation. It is used on patients of all ages and has no lingering side effects. In fact, you are safe to drive yourself home after your procedure. Regardless of which type of sedation you choose, you can expect an easy and highly effective solution to combat your dental phobia.

Reasons Why Patients Choose Sedation Dentistry

Keep in mind that sedation dentistry can be used during any type of procedure, from a simple routine cleaning to a wisdom tooth extraction. There are a wide variety of reasons why patients may have anxiety or negative feelings about the dentist and thus benefit from sedation dentistry, including the following:

  • A lengthy or complex procedure
  • Fear of pain
  • Fear of needles
  • Aversion to sights, sounds or smell of dental office
  • Sensitive gag reflex
  • Mental or physical limitation that makes it difficult to sit still
  • Past negative dental experience

Whether your dental phobia is rooted in a psychological or physiological reason, we want to redefine the way you view dental care. At Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry of Atlanta, we proudly offer sedation dentistry in a modern, comfortable atmosphere. Please let us know of any concerns, fears or anxieties you may have surrounding your dental visit, as our staff will go above and beyond to create the positive and stress-free experience you deserve. Call today to learn more about how nitrous oxide or oral sedation can benefit you.

I was recommended this practice from another dentist who told me this is where she would send her own family. I can definitely see why. This is a state of the art practice that is clean, modern, and well lit. The staff did a superb job.

James R.

Everything about my experience was enjoyable. I felt like the practice used all of the most advanced and best technology out there which gave me a wonderful feeling of confidence. They were very professional and straight forward and I have never had a better dentistry experience. I'd highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for a new dentist. They're friendly and efficient and they really do know what they're doing there.

Meghan D.

Dr Zelby has been my dentist now for almost 17 years. Not only is he a really nice person, his dentistry is completely top notch. If you need any restorations, I don't think that there is another place to even consider. You'll be amazed with his work!

Brian S.

Dr. Levine was great, and Dr. Zelby stopped by and answered some questions I had about sheering forces on enamel. They were both very friendly, and the hygenist (whose name I forget, unfortunately) gave one of the most thorough cleanings I've ever had. The office was clean, the devices all seem shiny and well maintained, and overall it was a great experience

Benjamin S.

After going to another dentist, doctor Zelby was able to fix my front two teeth so that the front two teeth were back to the same length and color. I'm so thankful he was able to make them look normal again. Dr. Zelby and his staff are so pleasant to be around as well. I highly recommend this office if you have a major problem with your teeth that need to be fixed. He can get it done and he will make sure you are happy.

Carrie G.

I had been going to the same dentist for many years and switched to Aesthetic and Implant recently. My experience with Dr Levine was incredible. I cannot be happier with the decision I made. The cleaning and other services I received were well above and beyond any other I have ever had. Highly recommend this practice to everyone!

Matthew G.

Couldn't be happier! Absolutely worth the travel time. Dr Zelby is without doubt the best - caring, knowledgeable, reassuring and very professional. Couldn't ask for better dentistry. Staff also very competent and professional. Beautiful, clean environment

Diane W.

Megan is the best dental hygienist I’ve ever had. She does a phenomenal job keeping your teeth clean, is super nice, and makes you feel right at home. The whole staff is very friendly and I couldn’t recommend this place enough!
