NASHVILLE SEDATION DENTISTRY
At Roach Family Dentistry
Sedation helps our patients relax during certain dental procedures. Mild sedation combines different medicines such as a sedative and an anesthetic to relax the patient and make the procedure painless. Another form of sedation is nitrous oxide — also known as laughing gas. Typically with any form of dental sedation a patient is awake, but feeling drowsy and relaxed during their procedure. Due to the nature of the sedatives, it is mandatory that the patient has a ride home after their procedure and does not operate heavy machinery for 24 hours following their appointment.
Deep sedation, also referred to as general anesthesia, is a form of sedation that puts the patient to sleep. However, anesthesiologists and oral maxillofacial surgeons are the only doctors who are qualified to administer this type of sedation. This is why Roach Family Dentistry is lucky to dentists on staff and in-house certified to conduct general anesthesia. In order to ensure the safety of our patients, four members of our team are in the room during a procedure in which a patient is deeply sedated.
When Is Sedation Dentistry Necessary?
Usually sedation dentistry is only used for major surgeries or complicated procedures. However, sedation can also be used to relieve a patient’s anxiety or fear brought on by smaller procedures as well as on patients who have an easily triggered gag reflex or extremely sensitive teeth.
