If you have been avoiding going to the dentist because you are anxious about dental treatment, then you have come to the right place – our dentists are very sympathetic about these emotions. Fear of visiting the dentist or of a dental treatment can be overcome with the help of the relaxation and sedation procedures that we offer. Sedation is extremely safe and is available for both adults and children.
You can be helped to feel relaxed by ‘relative analgesia’, sometimes called ‘inhalation sedation’. This means breathing in a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen (‘gas and air’) which quickly leads to a pleasant, relaxed feeling. Our dental team will ensure that you are at ease at the same time, by talking softly and suggesting what you feel. You will be conscious all the time, although you may feel drowsy, and you won’t feel any discomfort. There are no after-effects and you will be able to go home soon after your treatment.
