Can I alleviate my fear of the dentist?
Some people are so frightened of the dentist that they avoid dental treatment altogether but today’s we are sympathetic and in recognising that some patients experience real anxiety,a new techniques and approaches to help you.
Modern dentistry is very customer focused and as such, a range of sedation and relaxation techniques have been developed to help anxious patients overcome their fears.
What is sedation?
An effective way to treat the most nervous of patients are via intravenous sedation (injection)or inhalation sedation with nitrous oxide. The drugs have a relaxing and calming effect but don’t prevent communication between us and you so treatment can still be carried out easily. Weight, age and medical condition are assessed before suitability for this kind of sedation is determined but this would all be discussed during the consultation with the us.
