If you feel nervous about visiting the dentist, just the thought of it may make you feel panic and worry. This results in some people avoiding the dentist and then their dental health can deteriorate. Dental Sedation allows you to feel comfortable and relaxed during your treatment and have little to no memory of it ever happening.
Our experienced sedation dentist and trained nurse will help you to feel at ease. The majority of patients feel no pain or discomfort during dental sedation and it can be combined with most treatments. We are currently the only local practice offering Dental Sedation.
Intravenous or ‘IV’ dental sedation is a method of increasing a patient’s feeling of relaxation and calm. You will remain awake and able to co-operate with the dentist when required. You will enjoy a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of calm while your dentist addresses your dental health.
Typically, dental sedation is offered to those who are particularly nervous about having dental treatment and require help to calm their nerves. It can also be offered to patients who are not particularly nervous but who require a lengthy or complex dental treatment and feel that sedation would help them.
Dental sedation is fast and easy to administer, prompting patients to become drowsy and unaware of any treatment taking place around them. Our trained sedation dentist and nurse are highly experienced in the procedure of dental sedation. If you have any queries about it please ask your dentist at Scissett Dental.
We have found that once the pending list of treatments are completed under dental sedation, then with good daily oral hygiene and the right kind of diet, it is easier to maintain an excellent dental health. This reduces the need for future dental treatments with regular visits to our friendly dentists in our calm and relaxed environment.
