It is quite common to be scared of the dentist. We see many patients on a regular basis who have had a previously bad experience which has lead to a life long fear. We work with our nervous patients to help them overcome their fear and have the treatment they need and deserve.
We offer an extensive range of treatments to meet a wide range of needs. Some of the more complex and invasive treatments like dental implants may seem to scary too comprehend. This is where sedation dentistry comes in. Its a method that allows us to administer sedation through a small painless IV injection into the patients arm. This will then send the patient into a deep relaxed state and will cause temporary memory loss, so they will be blissfully unaware of their surroundings and the treatment that is going on. You will be awake and able to talk and respond to questions, but you won’t recall the treatment during and after.
All sedation patients do require an adult chaperon to help take them home safely and look after them once they are home. This is because you won’t be in full control of your body and won’t be able to make decisions for yourself during this short period of time.
We find sedation is a very popular treatment as it can be used with the majority of treatments that we offer. We have had patients come for a scale and polish under sedation as the chair was too much for them. After a few regular sessions we have noticed patients change their views to dentistry and have been able to have treatment without needing sedation.
