If you are nervous or anxious about undergoing dental treatment, then we can help you by using conscious sedation. It is a procedure used by dentists when treating patients who suffer from high levels of anxiety towards dental treatments.
Sedation dentistry has helped many people overcome their stress and anxiety to dental procedures. Many people are frightened of going to the dentist; this is nothing to be embarrassed about. It is important to discuss your particular fears with your dentist as there are various techniques available to help you overcome them.
Sedation has helped people who have not visited a dentist in years make that step towards better dental health.
Conscious sedation is a modern form of anxiety control. It involves the administration of a sedative drug to the patient before dental treatment that produces a sensation of drowsiness, relaxation and well being.
Anxiety and stress over treatments is relieved and the dentist is able to undertake any dental work necessary. The patient will still be conscious and able to understand any instructions given by the dentist but will experience either full or partial memory loss of the procedure. The use of sedation is very effective in helping nervous patients relax and cope with dental treatment.
