At Riseley Street Dental, we understand that for some patients, visiting the dentist can cause a high level of stress and anxiety. This can often discourage people from visiting the dentist, preventing them from receiving the treatment required to improve their oral health.
Riseley Street Dental are passionate about dental health, helping and educating patients to achieve a healthy smile. For this reason, we offer patients the option of sedation during procedures.
We provide a variety of sedation dentistry options to ensure that you are comfortable, relaxed and pain free during your procedure.
What is sedation dentistry?
Sedation dentistry, also known as sleep or twilight uses a combination of relaxing and pain-relieving medication to ensure patients are comfortable and pain free during their procedure. The medication puts you in a dream like state so that you are unaware of the treatment. When you ‘awake’ from the induced sleep like state, you will usually not remember anything from the procedure.
Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients who:
- Suffer from dental anxiety, fear of needles, have a strong gag reflex or hate the sound of drills. Sedation dentistry can be a great way to reduce stress and maximise comfort.
- Have a low pain threshold
- Can’t sit still in a dentist chair
- Require multiple or complex treatments in one session
