Oral Sedation

Oral Sedation Dentistry

Tabor Dental Associates serve the Hendersonville, Gallatin, Goodlettsville & Nashville areas.

Our office offers oral sedation dentistry. Oral sedation dentistry allows us to relieve anxiety without the use of needles or intravenous tubes. Additionally, patients who traditionally have trouble getting numb have no problem when sedated and relaxed.

About an hour prior to the appointment, the patient will be asked to take a small pill that will make he/she drowsy. By the time a companion accompanies the patient to our office for the appointment, the patient will be feeling relaxed and calm. We will escort him/her to a comfortable room and cover him/her with a warm, thick blanket.

Once the patient is comfortable and completely relaxed, the doctor and experienced clinical team will complete the dental procedure. During the entire procedure, the patient’s vital signs will be monitored to ensure their health and safety. After the treatment is completed, the companion will take the patient home to rest and sleep for a couple of hours after the appointment.

Benefits of Oral sedation

Oral sedation, or conscious sedation is a needleless procedure.

Oral sedation heightens your comfort. Dental sedation/conscious sedation will give you a feeling of comfort and calm and eliminate some dental anxiety.

Oral sedation or conscious sedation can take the edge off. Pain can make you feel very edgy. Oral conscious sedation can take care of two issues – your fear of pain and your fear of losing consciousness.

Oral sedation can help you feel calm and relaxed. Being calm during any dental procedure and having dental sedation will make the whole experience far more pleasurable.
