Consultation

Sedation for dental treatments

It is common to feel anxious about a visit to the dentist.

Many dentists are now aware of the phobia surrounding dentistry, and offer treatments such as sedation to help you feel calm and relaxed during emergency procedures.

What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation uses medication to ease you into a relaxed, comfortable state during a dental procedure. This means that you will feel less stress and anxiety during treatment. It is a perfect solution for those who suffer dental phobia but require emergency dental treatment. Dental sedation is not an anaesthetic and will not make you unconscious but rather allow you to enter a relaxed, sedative state whilst treatment takes place.

Types of Dental Sedation

a) Intravenous (IV) sedation
b) Oral sedation
c) Inhalation sedation

Benefits of Dental Sedation

a) Patients can experience from their dental anxiety
b) Patients are unable to feel discomfort whilst under sedation
c) It is compatible with a number of different emergency dental treatments

There are a variety of sedative medications available that are used to relax patients.

Patients with a sensitive gag reflex can undergo dental treatment with ease as the muscles will be completely relaxed

**COVID 19 ANNOUNCEMENT**

Please do not arrive at the practice unannounced.

Due to the outbreak of COVID- 19, we are unable to operate as normal. We are following all government guidance available to ensure we have a safe return to practice soon.
We have had to cancel all routine appointments including examinations and hygienist visits for the foreseeable future due to this.

 

WE CAN STILL HELP YOU

We are maintaining a telephone triage service from 8am- 4pm Monday to Thursday and 8am-2pm on Friday to provide:
- ADVICE - ANALGESICS (Pain relief)
- ANTIMICROBIALS (i.e. Antibiotics if appropriate)
- REFFERAL TO DENTAL CENTRES (if appropriate)

As a result of new guidance, we may ask certain patients to come in for a face to face consultation in urgent situations where we feel we may be able to provide the necessary care with the available resources. However, this will be decided by the clinician as it our responsibility to ensure you, our valued patients, team, and everyone’s families stay safe during these unprecedented times.
