Do you find yourself avoiding a visit to the dentist? Have you canceled an appointment with your dentist due to dental anxiety? If you are nervous about being in the dentist’s chair, but need dental work completed, the team at Nashville Restorative Dentistry of Franklin, Tennessee encourages you to talk to Drs. Ryan Jones and Caleb Estes about the available options to help you relax and receive the care you deserve.
Dental anxiety is not uncommon at any age. Curbing this nervousness before an appointment is critical to ensuring a positive experience. Drs. Jones and Estes provide sedation dentistry with oral conscious sedation. This sedation method uses a prescribed sedative taken by mouth the night before and morning of the appointment. Patients must arrange a ride to and from the dental office, allowing them to arrive relaxed and return home safely. Patients still have the ability to communicate if they need anything but will often doze off during the appointment with little to no memory of the procedures performed. This allows patients to accomplish necessary and / or large amounts of dental work easily during a single visit.
Oral conscious sedation is often the best sedation option for our patients with dental anxiety, and they can enjoy its many advantages:
Dental anxiety is common but does not have to keep you from getting the dental work that you need. Asking about oral conscious sedation allows our team to better meet your needs and help you find comfort!
