Dental sedation enables nervous patients or patients due to undergo lengthy dental procedures to receive treatment in a calm and relaxed state.
At Fitzroy Dental Practice, we offer sedation therapies to all patients who may feel the need for additional support during their procedure. Sedation allows the dentist to work gently and carefully with you whilst you remain awake yet feel more comfortable.
As well as local anaesthetic – which is applied to the area requiring treatment and numbs any sensation – we offer Intravenous sedation – administered by injection into the hand, this allows patients to remain awake through treatment however can dull the memory of the procedure.
If you choose dental sedation, we will take your medical history to ensure this is a suitable course of treatment. Sedation is completely safe and we are highly experienced in providing such therapies to patients of all ages.
If you are having sedation, please attend the practice with a friend or companion so that they can care for you over the next few hours.
