Sedation for the nervous patient

Here at Advance Dental Clinic we often see people who are apprehensive about dental treatment, usually after a bad experience as a child. For some patients just spending a little extra time and talking to the patient is enough to help with there phobia, however for some patients, particularly those undergoing more extensive treatment we often need a little extra help.

The most predictable treatment we can offer uses sedation using a ‘valium’ based drug. Given in a slow controlled way, this drug can safely help the patient overcome their anxiety, while always keeping the patient awake, without the need for a full general anaesthetic.

If you feel this treatment would help please feel free to contact us arrange a consultation and assessment.
