At Hazelwood Dental Practice we understand just how nervous or frightened some people are of visiting the dentist, especially if they have had a bad experience in the past. Such trauma can result in patients avoiding dental treatment, even if they are in pain or suffering from other serious dental problems.
Modern dental treatments have come a long way in recent years and our specially trained team is now able to offer special care for our most anxious patients through two forms of conscious sedation that will help make their visit to us far more pleasant and comfortable.
Intravenous or IV sedation involves administering a gentle sedative that is effective, predictable and safe. It is designed to make you feel sleepy and relaxed whilst treatment is being carried out. Some patients even sleep through their dental appointment with little or no recollection of the procedure afterwards.
Do not let your fear of the dentist get in the way of successful treatment. Sedation is effective, predictable and very safe and can help even the most nervous of patients, young or old. Your dentist will be able to advise which sedation option is best for you.
