Nervous Patients/ Sedation
We understand you may feel anxious about having dental treatment, whether you need a simple check-up or a more complex procedure. Or you may have developed a dental phobia that stops you from seeing the dentist and getting the treatment you need. We have extensive experience of treating nervous patients and, over the years, we have seen a wide range of people with different levels of anxiety.
What can really help is to talk through the treatment with the dentist or nurse so you will know what to expect. And when you do attend your appointment, you can trust us to ensure it will be as stress-free as possible. If you are worried at any stage, before or during your treatment, just let us know.
If you are very concerned, we can also offer intravenous sedation, which eliminates feelings of anxiety but still lets you understand and respond to requests from your dentist. You will also remember very little, if anything, about what happened during the procedure. And, rest assured, both Dr Paul Wilson and Dr Jim Toms have qualifications from the Society for Advancement in Sedation in Dentistry (SAAD).
Dental sedation can enable years of dental neglect to be corrected in just a few visits, and reduce the severity of a phobia. Sedation is also helpful for any patient who is undergoing lengthier procedures, and we would certainly recommend it for dental implants.
If you suffer from a dental phobia or require more information about how we can help you overcome your dental fears, call us on 0117 968 4888, and we will be more than happy to have a chat with you.
