Sedation Dentistry Is Safe & Effective

Does your child suffer from dental anxiety or fear? Have sensory issues or trouble sitting still? Need a lot of dental work?

Sedation dentistry may be what your child needs.

  • Sedation puts your child in a relaxed state, so they’re comfortable, unaware of the dental tasks at hand, and able to calmly sit through the visit.

  • Helps your child relinquish or prevent dental anxiety or fear, so they won’t be afraid to return.

  • Allows Dr. Brittany to complete more treatment in a single visit and provide a higher quality of treatment.

  • We offer three types of sedation dentistry options depending on your child’s needs.

Types of Pediatric Sedation

Dr. Brittany will help you choose the right one.

Oral Conscious Sedation

This medication comes in the form of a liquid that your child will drink on the morning of their appointment. Oral conscious sedation provides a mild to moderate sedation level, and it serves to relax your child so they can sit still for the duration of their appointment. Most children are relaxed enough that they fall asleep. Rest assured, whether your child is awake or asleep, they’ll be monitored throughout their entire sedation appointment to ensure their safety.

This is for children that need a stronger level of sedation than oral conscious sedation. We partner with Nashville Office-Based Anesthesia (NOBA)… This text opens a new tab to the official website… to bring a board-certified dental anesthesiologist to our office to administer general anesthesia. This provides a convenient and cost effective alternative to general anesthesia in the hospital. This is also a great alternative to multiple oral conscious sedation appointments because we complete all of your child’s treatment in one sitting if they are under general anesthesia.

Dr. Brittany has privileges at Centennial Women’s & Children’s Hospital… This text opens a new tab to the hospital’s website… as well as TriStar Hendersonville… This text opens a new tab to the location’s website…. The trained staff at these facilities will put your child to sleep under general anesthesia and monitor them while Dr. Brittany performs the dental care at the hospital. This option is usually reserved for very small children or children with special health care needs when it’s not safe to sedate in an office setting.

At Green Hills Pediatric Dentistry, we want your child to have a positive dental experience so they won’t develop dental anxiety or be fearful to return.

We strive to do this through our caring nature and the fun amenities we offer, but we understand dental treatment is difficult to tolerate even for most cooperative children.

Dr. Brittany Adamiak has had extensive dental treatment herself and has been in the patient’s position and understands that dental treatment is not the most pleasant experience, but it shouldn’t be painful and it shouldn’t be torture.

Dr. Brittany has made it her mission to provide dental care to children that is pleasant and stress-free, which is why she sought out additional training and certifications to bring pediatric sedation dentistry to Nashville, TN.

When my 4-year-old son needed several crowns, I was incredibly anxious at the thought of sedating him for the procedure and my husband was incredibly anxious at the thought of the financial cost. Dr. Brittany went above and beyond to help us understand why he needed them and to put my mama mind at ease as far as the sedation was concerned. My son did so well and I know it is every bit due to the manner in which Dr. Brittany runs her practice and caters so well to the children. It is priceless knowing my children’s oral health is in good hands.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Brittany and her office. My daughter needed a good deal of oral surgery and Dr. Brittany was able to make the multi-trip process as easy as possible. She always put the well being of my child first.
