Murfreesboro Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry involves relaxing a patient’s central nervous system through the use of agents that can be ingested, inhaled, or intravenously injected for the sake of facilitating dental procedures. Sedation can be minimal, in which case the patient retains motor control and can respond to stimuli but benefits from a reduction in anxiety, moderate, whereby they are even more relaxed but can still respond to a desired stimulus, and deep, wherein they are usually in a non-conscious, non-responsive state. There are multiple reasons why sedation is used during some dental procedures, however chief among them are the flexibility it grants both dentists and their assistants in preparing the jaw for various procedures and the dramatic increase in comfort it grants their patients. Simply put, sedation dentistry allows for what might otherwise be painful, though necessary, procedures to be performed. Minimal and moderate sedation, in particular, have the added benefit of enabling a patient to respond and interact with their dentist in situations where feedback and bodily cooperation are essential.
