Storm Update: Due to storm damage, we are not able to treat patients at our Mount Juliet location. We will begin rescheduling patients at a temporary location in Mount Juliet within the coming weeks. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, and so thankful for our friends and neighbors for all the support they’ve shown us in this difficult time. All our team members and family are well and accounted for, and our Gallatin and Cookeville locations are still running normally.

Sedation

Most treatment is completed with local anesthesia to adequately numb the treatment area. For patients who are especially anxious, have excessive gagging tendencies, or issues with claustrophobia, we offer various forms of sedation from nitrous (laughing gas) to conscious sedation.

Nitrous oxide works great as a mild sedative and is quickly out of your system after treatment, meaning there’s no need for the assistance of a driver after the procedure.

Conscious sedation, either via oral sedation or IV sedation, offers greater depth of patient comfort. For this type of sedation, patients are completely calm, relaxed and anxiety free. With conscious sedation, you are always able to respond to verbal commands and yet most patients will report no memory of the appointment afterwards. Patients that wish to undergo conscious sedation will require the assistance of a driver before and after the procedure.

If you feel you may be interested in conscious sedation for treatment, please request a sedation consultation appointment so that all areas of your care can be appropriately evaluated.
