Are you an anxious patient?


Dental anxiety is very common and nothing to be embarrassed about. Classically a bad childhood experience at the dentist or more recent trauma can leave a patient in fear of having dental treatment. Intravenous sedation (Conscious sedation) is a way to receive treatment in a totally relaxed and stress free manner. We can use a drug called midazolam which very quickly puts you at ease and many people will fall asleep during treatment. Most people will have no memory of the treatment session. Unlike general anaesthetics, IV sedation has no ‘hangover’ effect or feeling of nausea; in fact it feels very pleasant afterwards.

More information about Dental Anxiety

If you are having IV sedation, you will need to arrange to have a responsible adult attend the appointment with you and take you home afterwards. You are unable to drive for 24 hours or carry out dangerous tasks that require concentration. Further information about sedation can be given at your consultation.
