We also offer several options for sedation for those who need a comforting and helping hand in easing their fear and to relax.
Intravenous sedation (IV sedation) is an option that allows dental procedures to be performed while you are under the influence of a sedative drug given via an injection.
It offers a gentle calming effect, creating a drowsy state so we can offer treatment to you comfortably.
It has a quicker recovery time than general anaesthesia and can be used for all kinds of treatments, from surgical procedures to a simple professional clean.
Pre-medication is the process of giving you some anxiety relief prior to your appointment in the form of a pill which is prescribed to be taken the night before and, in the hours, leading up to the appointment.
Intranasal sedation is a technique utilised in patients who do not allow placement of a cannula into their vein due to a severe needle phobia. The drug is delivered using a special atomiser into the nostrils, which makes you feel the effects of the sedation within 5-10 minutes thereby allowing subsequent cannulation and giving a sense of relaxation and well-being throughout treatment. It is suitable for children, too.
If you are nervous about dental treatment, speak to one of our empathetic team who will arrange for a consultation. Your dentist will be able to help you decide which type of sedation is right for you.
We offer a haven of tranquillity, thoughtfully designed to stimulate the senses and complemented by state-of-the-art technology that makes your experience calm, relaxing and ultimately re-energising.LOCATE A ZENTAL PRACTICE
