Dentists, Dr. James Pace, Dr. Temp Sullivan and Dr. James Pace, Jr. of Belle Meade Family Dentistry, recommend patients with mild, moderate or severe dental anxiety make appointments to learn how sedation dentistry treatment can help them receive the dental care they need.

NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Respected dentists, Dr. James Pace, Dr. Temp Sullivan and Dr. James Pace, Jr. of Belle Meade Family Dentistry, often hear about children, teens and adults with mild, moderate or severe dental anxiety in Nashville, TN who resist coming to the dentist for oral health care. As a result, the esteemed dental team urges everyone with dental fear to learn how sedation dentistry treatments can make their next dental visit easy and comfortable.

Thousands of Americans avoid necessary dental care each year, solely due to their dental anxiety. This fear of the dentist may be due to a prior bad experience, heightened sensitivity to sounds and smells, general anxiousness, inability to sit still for long, embarrassment stemming from an imperfect smile and concerns about discomfort. The team at Belle Meade Family Dentistry can address each of these problems with a comfortable and welcoming staff and office environment free from judgment. This team also knows that an additional relaxing touch of sedation dentistry can make a big difference. That's why they offer oral conscious sedation, nitrous oxide and IV sedation at their modern and cutting-edge practice.

Patients who opt for oral sedation take medication before they arrive for their appointment. The medicine promotes a sense of calm and well-being. However, the oral sedatives used allow the individual to remain responsive throughout the entire procedure. Drs. Pace and Dr. Sullivan are each trained to deliver oral conscious sedation in Nashville, TN.

Nitrous oxide can be another excellent solution for combatting dental anxiety. Patients breathe in medication through a mask. This treatment begins working immediately to bring about intense feelings of relaxation. As soon as the mask is removed, the patient returns to a natural mental state.

For those with more advanced forms of dental anxiety, or those who wish to combine multiple treatments into one visit, patients can receive IV sedation from the Belle Meade Family Dentistry team as well. This team partners with an experienced anesthesiologist to administer and manage IV sedation throughout the appointment. That way they can focus on providing each patient with custom and meticulous care. Anyone living in the Nashville, TN area who experiences dental anxiety and wants to get the dental care they deserve is invited to call Belle Meade Family Dentistry at 615-298-2030.
