We know that there are many reasons why one might be tempted to put off their dental care. But it is never in your best interest to do so. And if it is anxiety or fear that is keeping you away from our Alpharetta, GA dentist’s office, we have something that is guaranteed to make it easier for you: sedation dentistry. That’s right, we’ll make sure that you feel right at home in our spa-like environment, and Dr. Morton will literally put your fears to rest with sedation! Keep reading to hear all about what we can do for you, and then be sure to follow up and schedule your next preventive dental appointment at Mint 32!
Dental Care Matters
When you visit Mint 32 every 3-6 months, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of the professional teeth cleanings we provide every time. These can keep gum disease and tooth decay at bay. And as a frequent guest, we’ll be able to remain sufficiently in tune with the situation in your mouth in order to be able to recognize any emerging causes for concern.
Why does it matter? Here’s a great example: simple cavities can deteriorate to the point where a root canal or extraction is your only viable option. Trust us, you won’t be happy about delaying your response to any problems that are going on in your mouth. With us on your side, you won’t feel the need to hide out and lay low any longer.
At MInt 32 Dentistry, we do make it our mission to provide a comfortable and welcoming environment for all of our patients. And if you are still bothered by bad experiences at other dental offices, we will do our best to create better memories for you moving forward. Most of our patients tell us that they actually can’t wait until their next appointment. Besides regular care, we can provide you with a complete smile makeover, and more.
What’s Sedation Dentistry All About?
According to the intensity of your anxiety, we will be able to set you up with sedation in one of two forms:
For this method, we will administer nitrous oxide to you via a small mask that rests over your nose. You will breathe normally throughout your procedure, and our team of oral health professionals can regulate the amount of sedation you receive.
Nitrous oxide is enough for some folks, but if you suffer from mid-range dental anxiety, you are at a much greater risk of having problems and will need to kick up the sedation dentistry levels to get through your visit.
The oral sedation method of sedation entails a prescription sedative that our team will arrange for you to ingest, usually about an hour before your actual appointment is scheduled to take place. Oral sedation is far more intense than nitrous oxide, and will put you at ease for the duration of your visit.
