Dental Sedation

You may find treatment easier if you have some form of sedation. Dental sedation doesn’t put you to sleep like a general anaesthetic but instead, puts you into a deeply relaxed state. So you are still conscious and able to talk with your dentist.

The most common forms of sedation are;

  • Intravenous (IV) sedation, where a sedative is injected into your vein.

We have a number of options alongside sedation, to help you overcome your dental fear including:

  • Relaxation techniques
  • Making sure that teeth are completely free of feeling before starting treatment
  • Techniques for distraction, such as bringing your own music or e-books
  • Strategies to help with the negative conversations you have with yourself that can cause anxiety to worsen
  • A tour of the practice before you commit to treatment, to put you at ease and meet the team

If you are nervous about seeing the dentist, please contact us and tell the reception staff about your concerns; we have the tools and experience to help you overcome your anxiety.
