We use advanced sedation dentistry for a wide variety of in-house services. Our goal is to ensure you are comfortable, calm and relaxed through any dental treatment or dental procedure. Our team will work closely with you to assess what fears you may have and determine a treatment option that feels comfortable for you.
Put Your Mind at Ease
Sedation dentistry is the use of any type of dental sedation to reduce stress, anxiety, and any physical pain associated with dental treatment. Sedation is a safe and convenient way to help you feel more relaxed at the dentist while your treatment is being completed. We offer dental sedation through local anesthesia, oral sedation, and laughing gas. Laughing gas can be used for a variety of treatments at Nations Dental Studio in Nashville, TN. It is a simple and effective way to help our patients feel more relaxed.
It is important that you feel comfortable and safe during your procedure. Before any procedure, your doctor will recommend the appropriate level of sedation that meets your needs. Then, we will set up your appointment and plan accordingly for your procedure, knowing that you will be relaxed and calm during the dental appointment.Contact Nations Dental Studio
Is dental sedation safe?
Yes! Sedation is a very safe option for those with dental anxiety. After a discussion with Dr. D’Aoust, we will find the best option for you that is safe, but also allows you the peace of mind that you will not experience any anxiety or fear around the dental procedure.
What is laughing gas and what does it do?
Laughing gas is Nitrous Oxide and is commonly used as a local sedation method. It’s colorless and odorless and its usefulness stems from its ability to quickly work and safely reverse its effects. It is a widely considered safe dental sedation method.
What type of anesthesia are used for dental work?
The most common types of anesthesia used are local anesthesia, IV sedation and general anesthesia. Local anesthesia is a numbing medication that is injected directly in the area that is to be treated—usually the gums around an effected tooth. In contrast, general anesthesia produces a more profound experience that usually leaves no memory of the actual procedure. It’s typically used for more intensive procedures like tooth extraction, dental implants or other surgical procedures and the patient is unconscious during the process. IV sedation is a deeper type of anesthesia that achieves a period of brief sedation with very little memory of the surgery.
