Although most of our patients visit us without any worries, we are aware that some are anxious or even phobic about dental treatment.
If you are anxious about your dental visit we can offer sedation and we would love to hear from you. Our team have undergone extensive additional training in the care of anxious patients and in particular the use of advanced sedation techniques.
To find out more about the dental therapies for Anxious Patients please call our friendly team on 01722 413 513.
Sedation is a common and safe procedure used to reduce anxiety. The sedative drug we use will make you feel calm and relaxed and you may fall into a natural type of sleep. You will be able to communicate with the dentist throughout but you will probably not remember parts, if any of the treatment. This is not the same as having a general anaesthetic, but to many patients it feels similar.
Once treatment is complete you will be able to rest in our private lounge until you are ready to go home. With that in mind, you will need an escort to take you home and stay with you whilst you recover.
