At Dentalia, we understand that visiting a new practice, or having concerns about discomfort, can make visiting the dentist a daunting experience. However, the fear of discomfort should never prevent our patients from seeking essential dental care. These feelings of apprehension are natural responses, and we pride ourselves on creating a welcoming, reassuring environment for all our patients. When seeking dental care at our practice, we guarantee that you will be cared for in an accommodating environment by our friendly and professional team.
If you feel that you may need extra support to get through a particular procedure, then we offer a sedation service to help. Our team of highly-qualified sedation dentists specialise in administering intravenous sedation to help nervous patients feel comfortable and relaxed during their dental procedures. Whether you need a simple clean, or a more complex treatment, we can help even the most anxious patients feel at ease while receiving the dental care they need.
Our Sedation Dentists
We offer intravenous sedation to our nervous patients, which is administered directly into the bloodstream through a small injection, usually in the back of the hand. This treatment will immediately have a calming effect on the body and is a completely safe and effective way to help patients relax and feel comfortable during dental procedures.
Our sedation dentists understand the importance of creating a comfortable and relaxed environment throughout this procedure to ensure that the patient is comfortable. Our sedation is not the same as general anaesthesia, and is intended to simply relax our patients. If you opt for this treatment, you will feel relaxed and drowsy, but will still be able to communicate clearly with the dentist. The sedation also wears off relatively quickly, which means that our patients can usually leave the practice shortly after their procedure and with little or no memory of the procedure.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Perhaps the most obvious benefit of sedation dentistry is that it helps patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during dental procedures. This can make it much easier for patients to receive the dental care they need, which can improve their overall oral health and prevent future problems.
In addition to helping patients feel more comfortable, sedation dentistry can also make dental procedures feel like they take less time. This is because patients are less aware of their surroundings and the passage of time when they are sedated. This can make dental procedures feel less overwhelming for patients who are anxious or nervous, or for those who are reluctant to seek dental care due to the amount of time needed for some procedures.
Sedation dentistry can also be useful for patients who find it difficult to sit still for long periods of time or who struggle with having dental tools in their mouth. By helping patients feel more relaxed, sedation dentistry can make it easier for our sedation dentists to perform essential procedures without causing discomfort or distress.
What to Expect from a Sedation Dentistry Appointment
When visiting dentists that offer sedation, patients can expect to receive the same high-quality dental care that they would receive during a regular appointment. The only difference is that they will feel more relaxed and comfortable thanks to the sedative.
When opting for dental sedation from our practice, you will be cared for in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Our dental team combines sedation with a compassionate approach to dentistry which includes explaining the procedures in detail, addressing any concerns that you may have, and completing the treatment with a calming bedside manner. Every member of our team recognises the importance of listening to our patients and remaining attentive to their needs from the minute they enter the practice, to the moment they leave. We also provide a welcoming atmosphere in the waiting area to help patients feel at ease and to adjust to their environment before their appointment.
