Is sedation dentistry safe?

Sedation dentistry is often the answer for patients with dental anxiety and phobias. It allows them to visit the dentist and get the treatment they need without fear.

And before we administer dental sedation in Brentwood, TN, we always make sure it’s a safe option for you, based on your health history and a chat with the dentist.

Our sedation dentistry options include:

  • Nitrous oxide — Nitrous is a safe gas delivered through a nasal mask. This option has no lingering side effects.
  • Oral sedation — A pill is taken before treatment, so you may not recall your dental procedure.
  • IV sedation — Sleep or twilight sedation is delivered intravenously. With oral and IV sedation, you will need transportation as you cannot drive an automobile that day.

Sedation works well for dental phobias, but it is also an excellent option for patients undergoing multiple or invasive dental treatments. It allows you to relax during your procedure and not feel nervous about your appointment.
