Brentwood Sedation Dentistry
For more than a century, sedation dentistry has been used to make routine dental procedures more tolerable. In the most recent few decades, sedation dentistry has evolved to include various options that offer patients varying degrees of sedation. At Brentwood Dental Excellence, we are fully trained and accredited for sedation dentistry. We closely monitor patient vital signs throughout each dental visit and are personally attentive to patient needs for the duration of each procedure.
Our office currently features two types of sedation - anxiolysis and oral conscious sedation.
Sedation dentistry uses medication to help patients relax during dental procedures. It’s sometimes referred to as “sleep dentistry” – you may slur your words while speaking and not remember much of the procedure.
*All patients who undergo sedation dentistry at Brentwood Sedation Dentistry must be transported to and from our office by another person on the day of their procedures.
Who is a Candidate for Sedation Dentistry?
Many patients can benefit from sedation dentistry, including those who are uncomfortable with the sensations associated with dental work. We also use sedation to treat patients who suffer with a fear. The only way to know if you qualify for sedation dentistry is by speaking with a sedation dentist about your individual case. If you live in or around Brentwood, Forest Hills, Franklin and Berry Hill, Tennessee, contact the staff here at Brentwood Dental Excellence to schedule your consultation. Dr. Asma Malik can discuss your options with you and help you determine if sedation dentistry is right for you.
