Sedation Dentistry

Although we do our best to make all our patients relaxed and comfortable, some of our patients need a little extra help. Dental anxiety is a common issue, making it stressful for many people to get the dental treatments they need. At Atlas Dental, we offer safe, effective sedation options to help our nervous patients have a calm, relaxing experience when they receive their dental care.

Your oral health is important, not just to maintain a beautiful smile but for your overall well-being. Avoiding the dentist due to anxiety can put your health at risk, as well as change your appearance. Sedation dentistry allows you to get the dental care treatments you need, without anxiety or stress. We offer two options at Atlas Dental: oral conscious sedation or nitrous oxide.

If you have anxiety about dental care or a fear of the dentist, contact Atlas Dental today for the care you need in a comfortable environment.


Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide is another sedation option we offer at our office. This is perfect for those with slight dental anxiety or for those that have trouble sitting still for long treatments. Nitrous oxide is breathed in through the nose and creates an immediate euphoric state of mind. While you will be conscious and aware of your surroundings, you will be relaxed. Once the treatment is finished, a few breaths of fresh air dissipates the nitrous oxide in your system and you will have a clear head again. You can even drive home after your treatment.

Never let dental anxiety keep you from having a healthy, beautiful smile. Ask about our sedation dentistry options at Atlas Dental.

Oral Conscious Sedation

For our patients with extreme dental anxiety, we may suggest oral conscious sedation. This method uses a prescription medication to relax our patients both before and during their appointment. Dr. Hieu will prescribe a medication that you can take before your appointment that will put you into a relaxed state. While you will be conscious during your treatment, you will be completely calm and stress-free. For this option, you may need to have a friend or family member drive you to and from your appointment.
