Sedation dentistry from your dentist in Athens, AL, can help you have a relaxing dental appointment. If you suffer from dental anxiety, it can be a big deal. Dental anxiety can keep you from taking care of your smile. Necessary dental treatment may be delayed, resulting in costly and painful dental issues. Now, you can relax! Dental sedation can help you feel calm about visiting the dentist.

Dr. Brad Beasley of Beasley Family & Implant Dentistry offers a wide range of dental services, including dental sedation, to help you have a relaxing dental appointment. Dr. Beasley proudly serves residents of Athens, and Huntsville, AL, and he can help you and your smile too.

Dental anxiety can result in some very real physiological changes including an increased heart rate, rapid breathing, hyperventilation, sweating, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Dental sedation can help you and your body relax, so you can receive the dental care you need and deserve.

Sedation dentistry can help you:

  • Have a painless dental appointment
  • Have a relaxing, calming dental visit
  • Sleep through your dental treatment
  • Get needed dental work completed in fewer appointments

Dr. Beasley offers safe, effective oral sedation in the form of a pill, which you take one hour before your appointment. The oral sedative will make you feel tired and relaxed. After you are seated in our office, you may be placed on nitrous oxide, commonly known as “laughing gas” which can help strengthen the effect of the oral sedative.

You may not remember much of your appointment afterward, and you may feel slightly tired throughout the day. It’s important to bring a driver with you to drive you home after your appointment because you will still be under the effects of sedation.
