You are not the only person who feels really anxious about dental treatment! It’s something we talk to people about all the time. We offer IV sedation which is an amazing way to help you get through treatment.
Sedation can be used to make any type of dental treatment more manageable -- oral surgery, or any general dental treatment like fillings or periodontal / gum treatment.
What is sedation?
It’s a medicine that helps you feel relaxed and makes you feel more comfortable about dental treatment. It goes into an IV line in your arm. You are not asleep but often don’t remember much afterwards.
Sedation also often works well for people who have trouble with gagging.
If you’ve been putting off coming because of fear, please do pick up the phone and give us a ring. You will need a consultation before your sedation appointment.
