N₂O Comfort

The gas has a light sedative effect to help patients stay calm and alert enough to answer questions throughout the procedure. Afterward, the patient is able to drive and continue their normal day-to-day activities.

Dr. Winfree will always carefully control the amount of gas administered to ensure your optimum comfort and safety!

Oral Conscious Sedation

Nashville Smiles offers oral conscious sedation to help promote relaxation during treatment. This form of sedation is taken as a pill prior to the procedure and can be used as either a mild or moderate sedative. With mild sedation, patients feel drowsy; for moderate sedation, patients may fall into a light sleep. Oral sedation is carefully prescribed by our team and is designed to be taken before the dental appointment.

For your safety, this form of sedation requires you to have a driver accompany you to and from the appointment. Normal activities can resume the next day, after the sedation has worn off.

IV Sedation

Intravenous (IV) sedation, also known as sleep dentistry, is offered to patients with extreme dental anxiety, to those with special healthcare needs, or for those who are set to undergo oral surgery or a long treatment. Most patients experience relaxation and temporary memory loss, and our doctors will adjust the medication as needed during treatment.

For your safety, this form of sedation requires you to have a driver accompany you to and from the appointment. Normal activities can resume the next day, after the sedation has worn off.
