For the first time in my memory I have no pain at all in my mouth. Congratulations!
I'm writing with a very big thank you for all the treatment you've given me!
We have adopted and offer the six month smile programme. The results are amazing. Enquire today!
Nervous patients come in all guises. Some cannot even walk through the door into a dental office, others shrug it off and pretend they’re okay whilst their heart rate goes up, their skin turns cold and their muscles tense.
We like treating nervous patients because getting the nervous individual through their dental treatment is immensely satisfying. It makes us feel good!
Intravenous sedation allows you to be sedated just enough to be pain free and unaware of the treatment, as if you were relaxing. That is why it is normally referred to as a conscious sedation process. So if you have sensitive teeth, a fear of dentists, have a bad gag reflex, hate needles, or have limited time to spend on dental care at the dentist, sedation during dentistry procedures can help you.
Whatever the case may be, sedation by your dentists can help you be more anxiety free during your dentistry treatment. Your dentist's ultimate goal is to make your visit to the dentist a relaxing and enjoyable one. Since you are completely comfortable, relaxed, and pain free your dentist can do years of dental treatments in one or two dental visits.
With sedation your dentist can restore sore gums to good dental health, fix a chipped tooth, replace crowns or dentures, whiten yellow or stained teeth, and more. All pain free.
Intravenous sedation is a reliable and effective means of producing sedation. There is rapid onset of action, however a great deal of co-operation is required to allow venepuncture. Having to put a needle in the arm or back of the hand makes this procedure difficult with children and people who fear needles. Midazolam is the most common drug used and again patients must be accompanied, and should not drive or operate machinery for at least 12 hours. IV sedation is good for patients who do not wish to remember anything which has happened, and for this reason can be a benefit for long or difficult procedures like complex oral surgery.
