Sedation Dentistry

Wisdom Teeth Removal
Our doctors believe that everyone deserves healthy teeth, and dental anxiety should not cause people to avoid getting the treatment they need. To help patients cope with this fear, Brennan Dental offers oral sedation dentistry.

Fear of visiting the dentist? Lose your fear of treatment with Sedation Dentistry.

If the thought of dental treatment fills you with dread, then consider sedation dentistry. Sedation dentistry enables patients who have a low pain threshold, very sensitive teeth, a gag reflex, or moderate-to-severe anxiety the ability to undergo dental treatment.

Being sedated while you have dental work will relieve your anxiety and make you less aware, or totally unaware, of the procedure being carried out. Your fear will be a thing of the past.

Talk with one of our doctors who can review your options from simple sedation treatments to more complex techniques, such as IV sedation. They'll make your dentistry anxiety-free.

Sedation (Sleep) Dentistry

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Brennan Dental has offered sedation dentistry for more than 15 years, gaining experience and continuing education through the University of Kentucky in that time. Dr. E. Brennan, Dr. J. Brennan, Dr. Gousman, and Dr. Smith hope to give all patients the gift of great dental health.

They will discuss the sedation options with you so that you can choose the one you prefer and which the doctor feels is best suited to your circumstances:
Mild Sedation: Anxiolysis is the lightest form of sedation dentistry and is often used for patients with mild anxiety, longer procedures, or more complex situations. Mild sedation is usually administered orally. Our doctors will prescribe a mild sleeping prescription for you to take the night before your visit so you do not experience anxiety prior to the next day’s appointment. You will take an additional prescription one hour before your dental appointment to help you remain calm and relaxed. Since this level of sedation will take time to wear off, you will need to have a responsible person bring you to your appointment and be on-site during the entire procedure.
Moderate Sedation: Used for patients with moderate dental anxiety and for patients who need longer or more complex procedures, conscious sedation often refers to the use of light IV sedation. With conscious sedation, you will remain awake throughout your procedure, but will be in a deep state of relaxation. Since this level of sedation will also take several hours to completely wear off, you will need to have a responsible person bring you to your appointment and be on-site during the entire procedure.
IV Sedation: IV Sedation requires specialized training and certification to be able to administer. With IV Sedation, medications are administered directly into the blood stream using a needle, and take effect almost immediately.

What are the Benefits of Sedation Dentistry?

Being sedated while you have dental work completed brings with it many benefits. Your anxiety will be relieved, you will be less aware or totally unaware of the procedure being carried out and your fear will be a thing of the past.

Who Should Consider Sedation Dentistry?

If the thought of dental treatment fills you with dread, then sedation dentistry is well worth considering. Whether you have a phobia or something less, by allowing your dentist to sedate you, dental treatment can be carried out quickly and efficiently. Talk to your dentist about sedation dentistry if you have problems with any of the following:
A fear of dentists
Low pain threshold
Very sensitive teeth
A gag reflex that causes problems during treatment
Need to have a vast amount of work carried out
If you qualify as a patient who experiences anxiety, our team can help you determine an appropriate course of sedation dentistry that meets your needs.
