For patients that are in need of sedation dentistry, but are unable or uncomfortable with either nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or IV sedation, we offer an oral alternative.
Oral sedation involves administering a sedative drug such as diazepam, triazolam, zaleplon, lorazepam, or hydroxyzine to a patient before a dental procedure. Children with general anxiety issues, or tendencies to experience dental anxiety may be a candidate for oral conscious sedation dentistry.
As always, our dentists are trained to administer the correct amount of sedation for each child, and safety is our first priority. For more information, or to schedule your sedation dentistry appointment, please contact our office nearest you (Alpharetta, Cumming or Johns Creek, GA.) today to schedule your appointment.
