-- Dr. Thomas Kauffman, an Atlanta dentist, introduces patients to sedation dentistry to help them overcome their dental phobias. With the use of sedation dentistry, Dr. Kauffman is able to establish a relaxed, easy and calm state through the use of sedatives for his patients.
The sedatives utilized by this sedation dentist in Atlanta can be administered orally, by inhalation or intravenously (IV). It enables patients who are afraid of receiving dental treatment to receive the dental care that they need, or want, while avoiding their dental phobia. Sedation dentistry is often used during procedures that require an extensive amount of time in the treatment chair, and is ideal for patients who experience dental phobia or have difficulty controlling their movements.
"Dental phobia may be jeopardizing the health and functionality of your mouth and smile. With sedation dentistry I am able to provide my patients with the dental treatment they need while giving them a relaxing and anxiety-free experience. No one should avoid the dentist. Sedation dentistry allows patients the comfort they need to receive necessary dental treatment to maintain a healthy smile," said Atlanta, GA dentist, Dr. Thomas Kauffman.
For patients who have a fear of dental treatments or have had a traumatic dental experience in the past, sedation dentistry can significantly benefit them. Additionally, it is also helpful for patients who have difficulty getting numb, have a bad gag reflex and very sensitive teeth. Sedation may also be recommended for those who don't like needles and shots, as well as the noises, smells, and tastes associated with dental care. It can be used for procedures in Atlanta such as dental implants, same day crowns and cosmetic dentistry.
There are different types and degrees of dental sedation available. The sedation dentistry technique recommended by Dr. Thomas Kauffman, an Atlanta sedation dentist, will depend upon the treatment being performed and the degree of the patient's dental anxiety.
