ATLANTA, GA, September 11, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Dr. Thomas Kauffman, dentist in Atlanta, is pleased to announce the use of sedation dentistry for calming patients' dental fears. Sedation dentistry is the process in which Dr. Kauffman establishes a relaxed, easy and calm state for a procedure through the use of sedatives, which can be administered in a variety of ways.
Intravenous (IV) sedation involves administering sedatives via injection into the blood vessels of a patient's hand or arm. Sedation dentistry has evolved to be an even more relaxing experience today, giving patients an alternative to traditional methods of inhalation and IVs.
"There are many patients who suffer from dental anxiety, but it is important that they take charge of their fears in order to maintain proper oral hygiene. This is why we are pleased to offer sedation dentistry to aide in calming patients' fears," said Dr. Thomas Kauffman, an Atlanta dentist.
The no needle approach has been proven to be more appealing to patients than previous methods. Oral sedation dentistry has become one of the most common techniques used in the United States and Canada to calm patient fears and make for minimal pain procedures. The medications used during procedures create a comfortable experience for every patient, which may make it so that they do not remember much about their visit to Dr. Kauffman's dental office.
Although sedation is not like anesthesia, it may raise a patient's pain tolerance. Most dental procedures will still require a local anesthetic to go along with sedation, to ensure a painless treatment. The local anesthetic will temporarily block pain impulses from the affected tooth and gum tissue.
Offering services in preventive care, periodontal care, fillings, crowns, root canals, tooth whitening, and dental implants in Atlanta, Dr. Kauffman and his team of dental professionals pride themselves on developing personal, professional relationships with their patients. They are committed to making access to dental health care as convenient, comfortable and accessible as possible.
Dr. Thomas Kauffman, Atlanta cosmetic dentist, and his staff are committed to personal, professional service for patients of all ages. The introduction of sedation dentistry is further proof of Dr. Kauffman's commitment to providing patients with the best in quality dental health care. Patients are encouraged to contact Dr. Thomas Kauffman to schedule a consultation to see if sedation dentistry would benefit them.
