We find that most of our patients who are anxious about dental treatment have usually experienced pain and discomfort in the dentist’s chair. It is our priority to provide these patients with the special attention they need to ease their concerns. We do this by creating a calm environment and providing first-class dentistry with the latest technology to reduce any pain or discomfort felt during treatment, so the process is stress-free.
Regular check-ups and getting treatments when they are necessary are key to maintaining your overall health. However, many people avoid the dentist because they believe that going in for dental treatment automatically equates to a painful and uncomfortable experience. However, we are convinced that our techniques and personal approach eliminates discomfort for all our patients.
We have a number of sedation methods which help to manage pain and ease feelings of anxiety or tension. This creates a relaxed state which enables our patients to feel comfortable and for us to conduct the treatment with increased clinical precision. Whilst we might suggest a suitable sedation method, this is ultimately your choice. We can administer injectable anaesthetics for smaller treatments. We can also provide conscious sedation or IV sedation techniques – which are given through a small plastic tube that is inserted into your arm.
We take the time to talk through any concerns you might have regarding your treatment. Our patients’ care and comfort are at the heart of everything we do, and we’ll only proceed with a treatment when you are ready to do so. This might involve selecting an anaesthetic or sedative procedure.
If any invasive treatment has to be conducted, we will automatically suggest an anaesthetic option, this will normally be an injectable solution which will numb the area surrounding the treatment. However, if you still feel too anxious to undergo the treatment, we can give you an IV sedation which will help to ease your anxieties. This will be administered via a small plastic tube which is inserted into a vein in your arm, ensuring you have a pain-free and relaxed experience. Whilst this sedative will normally remove any memory of your treatment, it also means that you will be conscious and able to communicate with the dentist.
