"I originally became interested in Dr. Dixon because of his sedation dentistry. I also wanted a dentist who was current with new methods in dental care. I have found that Dr. Dixon is on the leading edge of dental care and is very concerned with the comfort and care he gives each patient."
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation dentistry involves safe medicines and therapies that help patients relax and enjoy their dental experience. Dr. Dixon has been a leading-edge sedation dentist in Gainesville, Georgia for years. He utilizes three proven methods of dental sedation:
- Nitrous oxide sedation: A type of inhalation therapy, also known as laughing gas.
- Oral conscious sedation: Administered as a pill that provides a more profound level of calmness during dental treatment.
- NuCalm technique: A revolutionary form of neuromuscular therapy that relaxes patients on four fronts.
Who Would Need Sedation Dentistry?
Dental sedation is perfect for patients who experience anxiety during any type of dental treatment. The calming effect of the sedation treatment allows patients to feel carefree during procedures. Depending on the level of treatment, some patients don’t even remember their visit afterward.
Sedation dentistry is not exclusively for those who experience anxiety about dental treatment. Patients needing extensive dental work may also benefit from the soothing effects of sedation techniques. Regardless of the method, our staff carefully monitors your condition throughout treatment, allowing Dr. Dixon to focus on completing necessary dental procedures efficiently and effectively.
