Sedation Dentistry at Diss Dental health Centre

Nervous & Anxious Patients In Norfolk and Suffolk

Who should use sedation dentistry?

It is no secret that most of us do not like going to the dentist. In fact many people go years without even a check-up or cleaning. Some reasons for avoiding the dentist include:

  • Fear of needles, drills, or other dental instruments
  • Past traumatic dental experiences
  • Sensitive teeth and/or difficulty getting numb
  • Discomfort with the smells, noises, and tastes that accompany dental work

Fortunately, in this day and age these issues are no longer a reason to avoid the dentist. Anxious patients are welcome at our caring dental practice. We offer numerous solutions to conquer fear and get you the smile you always wanted or just simply get you comfortable caring for your oral health. We have a lot of experience of nervous & anxious patients and the whole team is practised at putting all of our patients at their ease. With sedation dentistry patients are able to have a comfortable anxiety-free experience while having their dental work performed.

First we’ll discuss the options available, including sedation.  With sedation you will feel totally relaxed, calm and at ease almost in a dream-like state. Intravenous sedation is a technique whereby an anti-anxiety drug is administered into a patient’s bloodstream. You will remain conscious during treatment and you will be able to understand and respond to verbal commands.  However you may not remember much about your treatment because IV sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on.

We can put you in safe hands with Sedation dentist, who will do everything possible to make your visit a pleasant one. He has a wealth of experience and has helped so many patients through their journey.

If you are sedated you will need someone to bring you to our practice on the day of your appointment. Also you MUST make sure you have someone to take you home afterwards.

Above all we endeavor to make our patients  feel as relaxed as possible and to leave our practice knowing they have been cared for with understanding and compassion.
