Sedation Dentistry

Sedation options offered for anxious or nervous patients


Are you a nervous patient? Whether you’re an adult or a child, being anxious about a dental procedure is extremely common. In certain situations, having the option of sedation to make the treatment tolerable, can make life much easier.

Many people experience anxiety about dental treatment, but for some it can be so debilitating that they feel unable to attend appointments, and their oral health suffers as a result.

We offer various different options, depending on your age and needs. Using these techniques, we can help patients overcome their fears so that attending the dentist becomes more comfortable and manageable.

Broadly speaking, Inhalation Sedation (also known as laughing gas) is suitable for children and adults alike, and IV Sedation is for adults only.

Patients usually require an initial assessment to determine suitability for treatment.
