Often nervous patients or those with dental phobias have missed out on treatments that could have transformed their lives.
Fear of the dentist can be caused by a variety of factors but the sounds, smells and even the thought of the practice are often enough to cause the fear to return. Our aim is to give our nervous patients the same treatment options as other patients, so we have created an environment and facilities that will put you completely at ease and reduce any fear you may have.
Sedation is suitable for most dental treatments that are available today, including but not limited to:
- Long and/or complex treatments, such as implants
- Root canal treatments
Sedation is appropriate for nervous adults and children over the age of 12. Patients who may benefit from sedation dentistry are those with:
- A strong gag reflex
- A fear of drills and needles
- A fear of choking, pain and dental smells
- A history of no dental attendance or those who have avoided treatment for a number of years owing to dental phobia
