Make your next dental treatment virtually pain-free.
Many people experience the feeling of anxiety in relation to visiting the Dentist, and will often put off making an appointment. Feeling anxious or even outright scared by the thought of dental treatment is nothing to be embarrassed about; it is a fear shared by many.
IV (Intravenous) sedation, sometimes referred to as Sleep Dentistry, enables you to receive the treatment you need while you sit back and relax in a dream-like-state, often waking up with no recollection of the procedure. Many patients are also able to consolidate all of your treatments into one or two appointments, limiting the time and inconvenience that may be caused. Sedation Dentistry may be beneficial to patients who have:
- Limited time to complete dental work
- Difficulty getting numb
- Sensitive teeth
- Complex dental issues
- Dental anxiety traumatic dental experiences
- Dental phobias – Fear of needles
- Difficulty controlling movement
- Patients who suffer from acute or chronic jaw soreness
- Patients who have a gag reflex
- Patients with physical limitations such as back or neck problems.
Feeling almost no pain at all, you will be relaxed and at ease throughout the procedure. After treatment you will feel refreshed and have no memory of the procedure or experiencing any pain. Best of all, you will probably only need one appointment to complete your treatment. So in just a few hours you can start enjoying the confidence that comes with a bright new smile and good dental health.
During your initial consultation at Broxbourne Dental Care we will take you through every step of your procedure to ensure that you fully understand how IV Sedation is conducted and how it can help you. During sedation, our Anaesthetist is always with you. Your vital signs are monitored during your entire procedure and you are never alone.
IV Sedation is a very safe procedure. Sedation performed in dental surgeries by qualified Dentists has an excellent safety record. When the patient is in good health the risk of a serious reaction is very small.
