Dental Sedation

Why choose us?

Some people are so frightened of attending a dental practice they allow their dental health and well-being to become an issue before seeking help.

For patients who do find the experience upsetting or very worrying we are able to offer Dental Sedation.

From our experience, patients are usually very surprised at how easy it is to cope with dental treatments after they have chosen dental sedation.

How we can help

We offer intravenous or IV sedation, where an injection is given in the arm or back of the hand. The dose will depend on the amount of treatment needed and the length of time it will take to complete.

You become drowsy and relaxed, and unaware of any treatment but you are still able to co-operate with the dentist. Don't worry - you won't be unconscious! The effects of the medicine can take some time to clear the body and we ask that you are accompanied for this treatment. You won't be able to drink alcohol, drive or work machinery for the rest of the day.

"I feel so relaxed when I come here now. You have all changed my life!"
