Many people avoid visits to the dentist because of dental anxiety. Others are undergoing more complex dental procedures that require a level of relaxation or numbness. If either of these sounds like you, Dr. Hassan Moeti in Stone Mountain, GA, offers a convenient way to make those dental visits more manageable. Dr. Moeti offers three types of sedation dentistry treatments to help patients feel relaxed and comfortably numb. Sedation dentistry is a simple and affordable way to help patients stick with their treatment plan.
Patients can get relief from dental anxiety in Stone Mountain, GA, when sedation dentistry is included in the treatment plan. Sedation options include:
Otherwise known as oral sedation, this medication has an anti-anxiety effect to help you feel calm and relaxed. Dr. Moeti will give you a prescription for anti-anxiety medication that you will take before your visit. You will remain conscious throughout treatment but very relaxed.
Also known as laughing gas, this chemical compound is a very effective sedative that you inhale through a mask. Dr. Moeti can control the amount of gas released through the mask which makes it easy to control the depth of sedation.
In some cases, it’s easier to inject local anesthetic directly into the gums and cheek. This helps numb a localized area completely so the patient does not feel any discomfort throughout treatment.
Undergoing dental treatment with sedation dentistry can make it easier to complete a treatment plan on schedule. Whether you need to replace missing teeth or are undergoing a full mouth reconstruction, Dr. Moeti can provide sedation options to help you relax throughout treatment. Everything is monitored to ensure patient safety and you will know exactly what to expect before treatment begins
