Don’t let nerves and anxiety make you skip dental check-ups. Entrust yourself to our team, who have the expertise and empathy to ensure your visit is pleasant and comfortable.
We take the patient experience very seriously, and have a wealth of experience in providing sedation if phobias and fears are keeping you away from the dentist.
Sedation is also used for long procedures, for extremely sensitive teeth or for individuals who have a hard time sitting still. It can also be used to counteract conditions such as poor gag and limited mouth-opening.
Sedation is safe and effective and it works in 3 ways:
- anxiolytic – relieves anxiety
- sedative – calms and induces sleep
- amnesic – memory loss
The patient feels very sleepy and has little or no recall of the treatment.
