We are well
aware that for many people the dentist is their least favourite place to be!!
As well as having a team who always try to put people at ease, both our
dentists and our head nurse have had additional post-graduate training in
conscious sedation from the Society for the Advancement of Anaesthesia in Dentistry.
sedation uses medications to help you relax to an appropriate level during a
procedure. Intravenous sedation also provides a retrograde amnesia affect
meaning that you won’t remember much of the procedure afterwards. So for most people afterwards it feels like
they just went to the dentist to have a nice little snooze!!
It is part of
the rules that you must have an escort to take you home and look after you all
day too! A great excuse to put your feet
up for the day. Doctors’s orders!!
