It’s important to never avoid visiting the dentist, but we understand that it can sometimes be a cause for concern for more nervous patients. We put our patients' comfort first, which is why we offer dental sedation to make the experience as stress-free as possible.
What is dental sedation?
Unlike other forms of anaesthesia you may have experienced for medical procedures, dental sedation is used to help you feel relaxed, rather than drowsy. It won't put you to sleep; instead it places you in a conscious but serene state.
As you're conscious, dental sedation allows you to maintain contact with your dentist throughout the procedure, meaning you can talk without feeling discomfort, and your dentist can let you know how the treatment is progressing.
If you have any questions whatsoever, your dentist will ensure that you're at ease and fully informed.
How we can help
A phobia of the dentist is something we strive to help our patients to overcome. Whether you're feeling particularly anxious about a certain procedure, or you have any questions at all about the entire treatment process, our expert team are always on hand to put you at ease.
We are used to welcoming nervous patients into our practice, and nothing is more rewarding than seeing a smiling patient leave, feeling relieved that their treatment was relaxed and comfortable, and empowered that they have taken control of their dental health.
