Every person is different – and when it comes to preserving your beautiful smile, you deserve a treatment that’s specific to your needs. But if fear of the dentist is keeping you from preserving your oral health, it’s important to find a sedation dentistry that understands your needs.
That’s exactly what you’ll find at RA Dental Studio, the office of Roya N. Akbar, D.M.D. As an experienced sedation dentist (serving the greater Alpharetta and Atlanta areas), Dr. Akbar understands that there’s no “one-size-fits-all” approach to dental sedation. That’s why she’s proud to offer multiple dental sedation options for her patients, which include:
- Mild Sedation: Sometimes patients just need to be distracted from the dental procedure to feel relaxed. Watching a movie with noise-cancelling headphones might be all you need to get that much-needed dental cleaning. You pick your favorite movie, we’ll provide the headphones.
- Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas): This conscious sedation option leaves you feeling happy and relaxed while your dentist performs your dental services, and is administered orally via a nose-and-mouth mask.
- Oral Conscious Sedation (sleep dentistry): Oral conscious sedation uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It’s sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry,” although that’s not entirely accurate. Patients are usually awake but relaxed. You may slur your words when speaking and not remember much of the procedure.
Confused about which sedation option is right for you? Not a problem: Dr. Akbar will walk you through each option to help you determine what your specific needs are. It’s just the kind of commitment and service you can expect from Dr. Akbar and her friendly team at RA Dental Studio.
