If you feel anxious at the thought of visiting the dentist, or neck and back pain prevent you from sitting in the dentist chair for long periods of time, ask Dr. Dennis Wells about sedation dentistry options for your next dental appointment in Nashville. Sedation dentistry helps your muscles and nerves relax so that you can have greater comfort and fewer worries in the dental chair.
If you decide that sedation dentistry is for you, Dr. Dennis Wells will prescribe a sedation medication for you to take just prior to your visit. This medication allows you to still remain conscious during the procedure, while staying relaxed and slightly groggy. Many patients choose to sleep through their appointment and wake up to their beautiful new smile.
Sedation dentistry grants you the benefits of reduced muscle tension, fewer dental visits, peace of mind, and safety during your procedures. Because oral conscious sedation doesn’t render you unconscious like some forms of deep sedation or anesthetic, your natural reflexes can still respond in case of an emergency.
