Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 30, 2013
Pure Dental Health in Atlanta, Georgia is pleased to announce that they are now offering sedation dentistry using nitrous oxide (inhaled), oral sedative medications and intravenous (IV) sedation. Patients can choose one of these three options to keep them relaxed, comfortable and free of pain while receiving dental treatment. While many dental practices in Georgia offer nitrous oxide and/or oral sedatives, very few offer IV sedation. According to the Georgia Board of Dentistry, less than 5% (261 out of 5,625) of dentists in Georgia have an IV sedation license. The training to require an IV sedation license is extensive and requires an additional mini-residency in a hospital setting for over 100 hours of continuing education.
IV sedation is preferred over oral sedative medications by some dentists because it provides a faster onset of sedation and is considered to be more effective. IV sedation is a good option for individuals who cannot get numb without difficulty, have an extremely low tolerance for pain or discomfort, suffer from intense dental anxiety or a fear of the dentist or have a severe gag reflex. It is also a good alternative for individuals who require oral surgery such as a tooth extraction or would like to complete multi-visit dental procedures in just one office visit.
Offering IV sedation dentistry gives Pure Dental Health an edge in Atlanta’s competitive dental market and serves to further differentiate their practice from many of their competitors. Atlanta Dentist, Dr. Justin Scott, Pure Dental Health’s founder and practicing dentist had this to say about their new services, “We are pleased to be able to provide IV, oral and inhaled sedation dentistry to the residents of the greater metropolitan Atlanta area. By offering sedation dentistry, we are able to provide comfortable, painless and stress free dental care to patients with dental phobias and/or other issues that make it difficult to receive dental treatment. Offering sedation dentistry is just one more step toward a continuing goal of providing patients with a different, more pleasant dental experience.”
