Sedation For Nervous Patients
We treat all our patients with the utmost care and respect. If you are nervous or anxious we also provide additional services to help you relax. Whether you are preparing for a complex procedure or nervous about your next dental visit, we are here to help.
We offer intravenous sedation and have also found self-hypnotherapy to be effective.
Many people are so anxious that they won’t visit a dentist. But, please, do not suffer in silence. We can help you to overcome your fears and calm your nerves. Sedation helps to induce complete relaxation and will enable you to feel calm before and during treatment.
Sedation causes you to feel relaxed and a little drowsy, but you will not lose consciousness and will still be able to cooperate with the dentist. Throughout the procedure you will remain relaxed and not experience any pain.
It can take a little time for the effects to wear off following the use of sedation. The dentist will advise how long it will take for the drug to wear off. During this time you should avoid driving, operating machinery and drinking alcohol.
If you are nervous or anxious about having dental treatment, get in touch with our team today to find out about sedation and our “Overcoming the Fear of Dental Treatment” short course.
