We Specialize In Taking Anxiety Out Of Dentistry So You Can Face Dental Appointments Without Fear! We offer Oral Sedation (in addition to other tools and techniques) to combat Dental Anxiety.
Dr. Nimisha Patel challenges herself in helping fearful patients who may be avoiding dental care due to dental phobia or bad experiences in the past. Over the years, she has helped many fearful patients get the necessary dental care that was being avoided due to Dental Anxiety. These very same patients have given her raving reviews and have referred many friends and family members to our Buford Practice.
Sedation Dentistry is the use of medication to help fearful patients relax during dental procedures. It is also referred to as “sleep dentistry”, but that’s not entirely accurate because most patients are usually awake. Only the patients that are under general anesthesia are completely unconscious. Our Buford Dentist, like most general dentists, does not administer general anesthesia. Based on the severity of the patient’s fear, we provide minimal to moderate level of sedation at our Buford Dental Office where the patient is usually awake but relaxed.
Putting off necessary dental treatment will only lead to more dental problems and the need for more intensive procedures down the line.
If you have dental anxiety, call our office at 770-271-4411 to learn more about oral sedation.
