Sedation Dentistry in Buckhead

Alleviating Dental Fear and Creating Patient Success Stories

Sedation dentistry is utilized to help alleviate anxiety and discomfort during dental procedures. The relaxed state of mind produced by sedation serves to make patients’ appointments as speedy and painless as possible. Dr. Collett spent two years of residency training in sedation, and offers a variety of methods to suit patients’ needs. Thanks to this training, the types of sedation dentistry we are proud to offer our patients in Buckhead include:

  • Oral Sedation – By taking a combination of anxiolytic medications, you will feel completely relaxed for your appointment. Medications will be provided during your appointment to ensure you remain in a state of comfort.
  • IV Sedation – Through intravenous access, medications are delivered that will provide a fast-acting sleep state. This “twilight” state makes your appointments feel only a few minutes long, and helps deliver appropriate medications to maximize your postoperative experience, as well.

During these types of sedations, we take special care to monitor every patient’s vital signs, and ensure that every case is handled in the safest way possible. In fact, the use of sedation is generally safer from a medical perspective, as it maintains your heart rate and blood pressure in a very stable range. Benefits of sedation dentistry include:

  • Enhanced comfort and pain relief – It is not uncommon to experience fear or anxiety surrounding dental visits. Although our team is welcoming, friendly, and will do our best to make you feel right at home, some patients might benefit from some extra relaxation assistance. We can adjust the level and type of sedation that you receive in order to meet your optimal comfort. Sedation dentistry is a great way to help patients overcome dental fear and empower them to be proactive about their oral health in the future.
  • Expedited procedure time – Not only can sedation dentistry make the procedure more comfortable, but it can actually reduce the amount of time it takes in some cases. Because you will be able to relax and be at ease, our team will be able to focus for an extended period of time, which can prevent the need to schedule follow-up visits (other than your routine teeth cleanings, of course!).
  • Accommodation for patients with special needs – At Premier Dental Care of Buckhead, we provide sincere care and effective accommodations for patients with special needs. Sedation dentistry is one of the ways that we are able to do this. Some patients with special needs might feel an added level of fear surrounding their dental visits, and they may be hypersensitive to the discomfort that comes along with certain procedures. Sedation dentistry allows these patients to relax and have a more comfortable experience. Our hope is that this will create a positive association with the dentist that will make a long-lasting impact on their oral health.
