Sedation and Dental Phobia
At Dental Arts Studio we recognise that a trip to the dentist can be daunting at times, which is why we have spent time learning how to help nervous patients who visit our practice for much needed treatment. Our friendly, approachable team will do all they can to help you feel comfortable during your stay with us and we can also offer sedation for patients who are extremely anxious about treatment.
It is important that you feel comfortable when you are with us and there is absolutely no need for you to feel embarrassed about feeling anxious.
What is sedation?
Sedation involves the use of medication to help you feel completely relaxed before and during treatment. We can provide oral or intravenous sedation to help you relax. Throughout the procedure, we will monitor your heart rate, pulse, oxygen levels and blood pressure, as your health and safety is our priority.
How does sedation work?
Sedation works by inducing a dream-like state to ensure you feel completely relaxed during treatment. You can choose from oral sedation, which involves taking a tablet before the procedure, or intravenous sedation, which requires medication to be injected into a vein in your arm. Your condition will be monitored at all times and we are always available to answer any questions or address any concerns.
