Alleviating dental anxiety with sedation in Kennesaw


Alleviating Dental Anxiety at Thirty-Two Dental Kennasaw
Many Americans avoid regular dental care out of fear or anxiety. Sedation dentistry is an excellent way for patients to have a safe, anxiety-free experience in our office. At 32 Dental, we provide sedation to ensure that all patients in the Kennesaw can receive dental care.

What is sedation dentistry?

Many people believe that sedation dentistry involves going to sleep, but this isn’t the case. Dental sedatives relax patients but do not render them unconscious.

Sedation dentistry has become popular because it doesn’t necessarily involve the use of injections, as most sedatives can be ingested orally. Patients are awake and able to listen and respond during the treatment, but often have little to no memory of it afterward.

Benefits of sedation dentistry:

  • Relief of anxiety / fear
  • Minimal side effects
  • No needles
  • No pain
  • Safe
  • Multiple procedures can be performed in one appointment

Types of Sedation

The two dental sedatives that we use in our office are nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.

Nitrous Oxide

Often called laughing gas, nitrous oxide is the mildest form of sedation. It’s administered through a nose mask for the duration of your procedure. Nitrous oxide relieves anxiety, minimizes pain, and elevates the mood. The effects of the medication wear off quickly afterward.

Oral Conscious Sedation

This type of sedation involves ingestion of an oral medication prior to treatment. Some of the most common medications are Valium, Halcion, Ativan, and Versed. Oral sedatives dull the senses leaving the patient with virtually no memory of the procedure. Transportation to and from the appointment is required with oral sedation.

If you have suffered from dental anxiety, it’s time for you to take back control of your oral health. If you live in the Kennesaw area, please contact us today at (770) 423-1132 to learn more about sedation dentistry.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
