Nervous Patient Dentist in Milton Keynes
When your dentist identifies oral health problems, it’s crucial to act fast to restore your oral health and prevent further deterioration. However, dental treatment can be a daunting experience, particularly for nervous patients or those that have had previous bad experiences
Dental Sedation allows us to reduce anxiety in a far safer way than general anaesthesia, to put you at ease before and during your procedure. It’s a popular choice for patients undergoing treatment such as dental implants and fillings.
The advantages of IV Sedation
It’s natural to experience nerves and anxiety in the run up to dental treatment, especially if you have a fear of needles. IV sedation given by a sedation dentist is a fast, reliable and effective solution for nervous patients, designed to induce a state of relaxation during your procedure.
In contrast to general anaesthetic, you will usually remain conscious under IV sedation, but can either fall asleep or experience a sense of time passing by quickly; this will take your focus off the treatment. As a result, conscious sedation offers a comfortable, relaxing solution for your trip to the sedation dentist.
