Sedation Dentistry is an ideal solution for those patients who are nervous about visiting the dentist or who suffer from dental phobia. It enables treatment to be carried in a stress and worry free way, and helps many patients overcome their fear of visiting the dentist.

Sedation dentistry is a simple procedure that dentists as well as other medical professionals can use on their patients who may be apprehensive about receiving treatment. It uses medication to put the patient in a very relaxed, dreamlike state whilst having treatment carried out. This means that the patient does not feel the stress and anxiety that they may usually feel prior to visiting the dentist and the dental procedure taking place.

At Vicars Cross Dental we are able to offer our patients the option to have their treatment carried out under intravenous sedation. This technique enables our patients to receive their dental care by relaxing them, making them feel calm and sleepy.

For the dentist, sedation means that treatment is easier to perform, and that more treatment can be performed in one session, reducing the number of sessions needed to carry out a course of treatment.

Please note that a consultation appointment is required to determine suitability prior to any sedation being administered.
