Sedation Dentistry in Norcross

If you experience dental anxiety, our team is here to help. Sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, is used in a variety of common dental procedures to help you relax and make you as comfortable as possible. At Norcross Dental Associates, we offer local anesthetic and laughing gas.

Our anesthesia and sedation methods are safe for patients of all ages. A member of our friendly and professional team is here to answer all of your questions and help make your next visit as relaxing as possible.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry involves the use of medication to make dental treatments more comfortable and less stressful. We offer two sedation options: local anesthesia and laughing gas. Our dentist will administer a local anesthetic before many dental procedures. The anesthesia will numb the treatment area and reduce any discomfort to make your treatment as relaxing as possible. The effects of the anesthesia usually wear off in a few hours following your procedure.

Depending on your treatment needs, we can also recommend laughing gas. We administer the gentle, breathable gas through a small mask. In combination with the local anesthetic, laughing gas can put you in a state of calm and relaxation. The effects of the laughing gas usually pass quickly following your treatment, with minimal grogginess or other side effects.

Our team also recommends laughing gas for patients who suffer from dental anxiety. This can include anxiety due to:

  • Past negative experiences at the dentist’s office
  • The noise or vibrations experienced during some procedures
  • Pain or sensitivity in the teeth or other mouth tissues

Is Sedation Dentistry Safe?

Yes, our sedation methods are safe for patients of all ages. Our compassionate and highly-skilled team is trained to safely administer local anesthesia and laughing gas. If you have experienced allergic reactions to anesthesia or sedation in the past, be sure to discuss your dental care history with our team. We want to help make your experience as safe and relaxing as possible.

I have been going here for years. I always have great service. I was early for my cleaning appointment. The person before me didn't show up and I was able to get in instead of just waiting in the waiting room. Thanks!


I have been seeing Dr. Risse for several years and have been very happy. She is very knowledgeable and also easy to talk to. I never feel like she is trying to upsell me. She seems to really have my best interests at heart. Melissa, her assistant, is also great. I have referred them to several friends


I've never been so content with a dental practice! In all my years of searching for an ideal practice that wouldn't make me feel so guilty for not always keeping up with myself.. this place made me feel warm. My hygienist is awesome and super informative. The greatest thing about my experience, thus far, is how dedicated they are to make sure they get me on the right track so I can have a beautiful smile again. Thank you Tina for making my first visit so awesome! And thanks to the front desk ladies! They are so down to earth!
