Using sedation dental phobics and nervous patients are now able to get the treatment they need and the smile they’ve always wanted. At Adams Dental in North London we offer treatment under conscious sedation, which means you will be awake and able to cooperate with your dentist, but will be in a state of deep relaxation. You will remember little to nothing about treatment once it is complete, and most importantly will experience no pain.
If you are scared of the dentist, you are not alone. As many as one in ten adults in the UK cite fear as their main reason for putting off dental treatment, over and above worry about costs or lack of time.
There are many causes of fear of the dentist, from a bad experience during childhood to specific triggers such as the sound of a drill or the sight of a needle.
Whatever the cause of your fear, at our North London practice you can be assured that you will always be treated with the utmost respect and care. Our whole team is sympathetic to the needs of nervous and phobic patients, and we will do everything we can to ensure you feel comfortable, relaxed, and in control at all stages of treatment.
By using sedation dental phobics and those who are very anxious about treatment are able to calm their fears and relax while the dentist gets them back to full oral health. We offer two options for sedation at our North London clinic: oral sedation and intravenous (IV) sedation.
We will provide you with full instructions on what to do before and after receiving sedation – you need to bring a friend who will take you home and care for you until the drugs wear off.
With conscious sedation dental phobia can be a thing of the past.
