Some people are so frightened of the dentist that they avoid dental treatment altogether but our dentists are sympathetic and in recognising that some patients experience real anxiety, we have techniques and approaches to help.
Our 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.
Whilst IV sedation will make you drowsy and unaware of the treatment you are undergoing, you will remain lucid enough to communicate and cooperate with the dental team. The effects of the sedative will take time to wear off and you won’t be able to drink alcohol, drive or work machinery during this time so it is important that someone can help you home after treatment and keep a careful eye on you for some time afterwards. Your dentist will tell you how long it will be before the drugs are completely clear from your body.
It is highly likely! As you get to know and trust your dentist, hygienist and other members of the dental team at your practice, your fears will dampen. In time you will come to see your regular visit to the dentist as just another part of your normal life.Back to General Dentistry
