Sedation Dentistry

Schedule Consultation

Dental care does not need to be stressful or uncomfortable, even for those who have anxiety when visiting the dentist. Sedation dentistry allows patients to relax and feel at ease while they receive the dental treatments that they need to maintain their smile and oral health. At The Dentist Centers, we put our patients first and want to provide them with a pleasant experience when they visit our offices. We offer relaxation options, such as nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation, at our clinics in Sandy Springs and Alpharetta.

Dental anxiety is one of the main reasons some people prefer sedation during dental procedures. These safe medications can help put their mind at ease and allow them to relax during treatments. There are other reasons we use sedation for some of our patients. Those with an over-active gag reflex can benefit from sedation, as well as some people with disabilities that make it difficult for them to relax. Sedation can help put our patient into a calm state, allowing us to complete our treatments quicker and without interruption.

Oral Conscious Sedation or Nitrous Oxide

The type of sedation used depends on the person and procedure. Nitrous oxide, also called laughing gas, is a safe, mild sedative for those with a slight to moderate dental anxiety or gag reflex. Breathing in the gas creates a euphoric state, but the effects quickly dissipate when you stop inhaling in the fumes. Oral conscious sedation is a stronger sedation that uses an oral medication to put the patient into a relaxed state. The effects can last longer, requiring someone to bring the patient to and from their dental appointment.

At The Dentist Centers, we want to help all our patients get the dental care they need with as little stress as possible. Ask us about our free sedation options when you schedule your next treatment.

I have been going here for over 9 years. I love the staff. From Dr. Myers to the front office, they are all top notch. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to get back in a room for what ever procedure I am having. I would recommend them to anyone.

Lauree W.

Best dentist ever! Dr. Myers and his staff are amazing. I have had dental challenges in the past and have been judged by other dentists. I never feel judged when I go to the dentist now. Dr. Myers also gives the least painful numbing shots that I’ve ever had. Highly recommend!

Dr meyer abd his staff have been an amazing group for the 13 years I have been there. Today specifically I was in an extreme amount of pain and they made immediate accommodations for me , and all though the procedure was not present they were compassionate , kind , and informative throughout the process. I love these people and all they have done for me!

Very pleasant experience. Very kind, caring and professional. I had mixed results from my whitening. Looks like some of the bleach stuck better and therefore whitened better. They took some x rays and suggested a crown which I may look into soon. We'll see how the money flow is. But I will definitely look to them for future needs.

I am so glad I went to cosmetic dentistry for my procedure. Dan Myers and staff made me feel comfortable. For me, the procedure was a bit stressful but I knew I was in good hands. I felt like it would never end. Yet Dan Myers never lost patients. I have been to other dentists but there is no other dentist I would rather have treating me.

Murray L.

Dr. Dan and his staff are friendly, professional, and efficient. I rarely spend time in the waiting room. I'm usually greeted by first name as soon as I walk in the door and a dental chair is already waiting for me. No high pressure sales here, just a straight-shooter dentist and a rock star team. Highly recommended.
