We offer sedation to make our clients feel as comfortable as possible during dental treatment. If you are a very nervous patient or you suffer from dental phobia, sedation can help you to feel relaxed and calm during your time in the dental chair.
Sedation involves using medication to induce a state of profound relaxation. It is used widely in dentistry and medicine and can be particularly beneficial for those who feel anxious or nervous about having a dental procedure.
We offer three forms of sedation: intravenous, oral and inhalation. Your dentist will explain how the different types work and which method would suit you best.
When the effects of the sedative become apparent, you will feel drowsy and completely calm. You won’t feel anything, but you will still be conscious. After the procedure, it’s common to have little recollection of what happened.
After sedation, we advise you to take things steady. You can return home, but we ask you to arrange a lift and ensure that somebody stays with you while the effects wear off. It’s best to avoid exercise, drinking alcohol, operating machinery and driving for 24 hours.
Our team is experienced in providing treatment under sedation and we work with specialist anaesthetists to provide IV sedation. We can assure you that you are in the safest hands. We understand that many patients feel apprehensive about having dental treatment and we are here to support and reassure you every step of the way. Our aim is to make sure that you feel comfortable and we use the latest techniques to achieve this.
