Sedation For Nervous People

We understand that visiting the dentist can be stressful and, for some people, extremely worrying, but our team can help ease your anxiety and make sure you receive the treatment you need. If you are very frightened, we can offer intravenous (IV) sedation, which will relax you but still allow you to communicate with the dentist.

Prior to sedation, your weight, age and medical condition are assessed to ensure it will work effectively. A very thin needle is inserted into a vein in the back of your hand, leaving a soft plastic tube through which the sedative will be gradually delivered, and you are closely monitored throughout the treatment process.

You will need additional pain relief as sedation only helps you feel more relaxed, but this will only be administered once you are suitably calmed.

As the effects of sedation will take a while to wear off, you will need someone to take you home and look after you. Also, don’t drive or operate machinery until the drug has completely left your system.
