Have you been putting off going to the dentist for years?
Is the thought of treatment just too much for you?
Are you suffering episodes of pain but just putting up with it?
Then perhaps IV sedation is for you…
Dental anxiety is common and affects people of all ages. There are different levels of dental anxiety, ranging from slight nervousness to a severe phobia (an out-of-proportion fear that makes you steer clear of certain situations).
Dental anxiety affects people in different ways. You may be anxious about specific aspects of dental treatment, or being in close contact with someone you don’t know very well. You may have had unpleasant experiences at the dentist as a child and are frightened that these will be repeated.
At Manor House Dental we provide intravenous sedation for patients with dental anxiety.
Sedation dentistry is not for everyone. In fact, many of our patients with some dental anxiety find they don’t need sedation in our practice. These patients often tell us that our caring, gentle approach provides them with a relaxing, pleasant experience even without sedation. But if you find the thought of your treatment is just too much then the choice is really yours.
Advantages of IV Sedation
IV sedation is an excellent method of treatment for patients who have any of the following concerns:
- Dental Anxiety
- Difficulty Getting Numb
- Extensive Dental Needs
- Involved procedures (wisdom teeth)
It is our aim that once the IV sedation treatment is done we try to rehabilitate you into having your treatment done without IV sedation. This is done by regular contact and maintenance program that will gain your confidence for the future.
