Oral Conscious Sedation
If you suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Connell may recommend oral sedation. These anti-anxiety pills tone down activity in the parts of your brain that cause you to feel anxious or afraid.
Remember, if you take oral sedation, you cannot drive before or after your appointment. Bring a friend or family member with you to make sure you arrive and get back home safely following your appointment.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)
Unfortunately, dental anxiety can keep many patients from visiting the dentist for checkups and much-needed dental work. If dental appointments make you anxious, Dr. Connell can administer nitrous oxide (commonly known as “laughing gas”) to help you feel more at ease during your visit.
At Exceptional Dentistry At Johns Creek, laughing gas is administered using a mask, allowing you to feel more at ease within minutes. If you are feeling anxious about an upcoming visit, ask about nitrous oxide. Most of our patients are good candidates for this treatment.
If the early stages of gum disease aren't treated, gums will recede away from teeth, which can trigger a variety of other dental and oral health problems.
