It is normal to feel nervous about surgery, but sometimes it’s a necessary step towards protecting your health. If you are a nervous patient who has experienced tooth loss, you may require dental implants to reconstruct your missing teeth. However anxiety over undergoing dental implant treatment, which requires a minor surgical procedure, may leave you hesitant to seek help. At Adams Dental in North London, dental implants are fitted with care and precision during a procedure that is made as painless and comfortable as possible.
Dental implants in North London are the next best thing to healthy, natural teeth. Strong and stable, dental implants restore your missing teeth, so that they look, feel and function just like your natural teeth. We understand that some patients are more nervous than others when it comes to having dental work carried out. This is why at Adams Dental, you can expect a compassionate, caring and professional approach to dealing with dental anxiety. What’s more we offer dental sedation to help you feel more relaxed during your procedure. There are two types of sedation that we offer: oral and intravenous.
Oral versus intravenous sedation
Oral sedation comes in the form of a tablet that you take on the morning of the procedure. Generally, oral sedation is lighter than intravenous sedation but is still enough to ensure a comfortable experience for most patients.
Intravenous sedation involves the use of a sedative drug injected into your bloodstream. This provides a deeper level of sedation than oral sedation. It also comes with the added benefit of leaving you with a fuzzy memory of your treatment. As it stronger than oral sedation, we always make sure that it is provided by one our team of dental professionals who is specially trained in sedation.
It will take several hours for you to recover from intravenous sedation. We therefore advise that you are accompanied by an adult on the day of your procedure.
