Sedation Dentistry

If the thought of visiting the dentist causes you anxiety, you are not alone. Going to the dentist is a common phobia, but it can damage your health. Avoiding the dentist’s office for routine cleanings sets you up for problems in the future. When you don’t receive treatment for painful teeth, you risk tooth loss, infection and nutritional deficiencies if you can’t eat properly. Sedation dentistry addresses dental anxiety and ensures you get the care you need.

Which Type of Sedation Is Right for You?

There are different levels of sedation dentistry, but not every dentist is qualified to use all of them. Depending on your level of apprehension, you may need a more complex sedation. For that, you will need to find a dentist qualified to perform the procedure. Some available sedations are:

Inhaled sedation
Also known as nitrous oxide, or “laughing gas,” this is a minimal sedation. You will be relaxed, but not sleepy. It is fast acting, but it also doesn’t last long.

Oral sedation
Oral sedation is given as a pill. It can achieve minimal to moderate sedation. With a smaller dose, you’ll feel relaxed and a little sleepy. Unlike nitrous oxide, minimal oral sedation is slower to act, but the effects last longer. A moderate sedation will make you very sleepy, but you remain awake.

IV moderate sedation
You will receive fluids through an IV. The doctor will add the sedative to the IV line, and it will act very quickly. You may doze off into a light sleep. The benefit with this method is the dentist can continuously control your sedation.

I am proud to give Mansouri Family Dental Care a 5 star review. They have built a beautiful facility in Marietta. Nicola always cleans my teeth. I would give her more that 5 stars if that was an option. I know I get personal attention and an excellent cleaning. Thank you Nicola.

Nate M.

What a wonderful dental care team! They took great care of my wife and I, and even gave great accommodations for my wife who is very scared of the dentist. They were very transparent with billing and answered all our medical questions clearly and quickly.

I’m very pleased with this practice. I’ve been a patient there for a few years and I really trust Dr Mansouri’s diagnosis and treatment. I was having a lot issues with my jaw and teeth and he told me exactly the treatment I needed and now finally my issue was resolved. I also love Nicola my hygienist. She is very thorough with my cleaning. I highly recommend this practice!!!
