You are not the only person who feels really anxious about dental treatment! It’s something we talk to people about all the time. The hardest bit is often just picking up the phone and giving us a call.
I firmly believe that the most important thing is to be kind, a good listener, and be great at getting things really numb! But I know that some people need something extra - and that is sedation.
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.
