Here at Shine Dental Clinic we are passionate about making your dentistry as comfortable and stress free as possible. Our entire team have a wealth of experience in dealing with nervous patients. You are not on your own feeling anxious about dentistry. If our patience, care and gentle manner does not alleviate your anxieties, then maybe sedation is for you.
Intravenous sedation is a safe and simple procedure which makes you more relaxed and in a dreamlike state. You will be conscious throughout the procedure. However, you will no longer be fearful of having your treatment.
Sedation is particularly useful in the following cases:
Highly anxious about dental visits
Have had traumatic dental experiences in the past
Are receiving complex treatments/surgery
Have difficulty getting numb
Have a strong gag reflex
Have TMJ troubles and cannot open your mouth for extended periods
Are afraid of needles in your mouth
Have sensitive teeth
Hate the noises and/or smells associated with dental care
Sedation is only available for adult patients and an escort is required for the patient undergoing sedation. If you are interested in sedation or just wish to talk to someone about your fears please contact us.
