A lot of people are so phobic about going to the dentist that they prefer not to have any treatment.
For people who avoid dentists like the plague, sedation dentistry may take away some of their anxiety. Sedation can be used for everything from invasive procedures to a simple tooth cleaning. How it’s used depends on the severity of the fear.
Get in touch with our staff to schedule an appointment on 02890 661 688.
Sedation is a way of making you feel less nervous and anxious about having dental treatment. The system we use very frequently is Inhalation Sedation (gas and air, twilight sleep, laughing gas). You simply breathe a controlled mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. This is totally safe and comfortable.
This system is easy, effective and quick. It also wears off very rapidly and leaves you able to carry on as normal soon after your appointment.
For people who are extremely anxious we sometimes have to use intravenous sedation which is much deeper. If you wish to have more information regarding this latter option give us a call on 02890 661 688 and speak to Sharon.
