We also appreciate, however, that some people still need an extra helping hand to get them through a dental appointment, and so we offer intravenous sedation.
This involves a small injection, usually in the back of the hand. This is not uncomfortable, and will quickly make you feel sleepy and calm. You will be conscious throughout the treatment and will be able to co-operate with the dentist.
Usually our patients remember nothing at all about the procedure, and are more than happy to have sedation again if they need further treatment.
