About Nervous Patients
Whilst the comfort of dental treatment has increased astronomically in the past century, we understand that previous bad experiences or even just the close contact nature of dentistry can make you feel a little nervous prior to your appointment. We will endeavour to put you at ease and explain everything we need to do in an understandable manner. However, if you have a lot of work to do or you would simply prefer not to be awake whilst undergoing treatment, we do offer treatment under IV sedation. This means that an anaesthetist administers medication which puts you to sleep whilst we complete your treatment – once you wake up, it’s all done!
Prior to arranging this treatment you will require a consultation and x-rays so that we may provide a treatment quote and confirm that IV sedation is a suitable treatment option for you. We will also provide a costing for the anaesthetist who will provide the sedation for you.
