At Purity, we have treated a number of patients who have been extremely anxious of dental treatment. We understand that this may have been caused by a previous unpleasant experience or the development of an unexplained phobia. Whatever the cause of your fear and no matter how anxious you feel, our professional and experienced team are here to help.
Conscious sedation is a form of anxiety control which makes treatment more pleasant for patients. it is effective, predictable and very safe. It is the modern alternative to general anaesthesia for most dental procedures. Conscious sedation can be given in a number of ways and intravenous sedation is the most commonly used form in adults
If you are nervous about treatment, sedation helps put you into a relaxed, sleepy, dream-like state. Most patients can remember little or nothing of the procedure, but it does not affect any part of your memory before the drug is given.
Conscious sedation is a very powerful and safe way of reducing anxiety to allow dental treatment to be carried out.
We would like to make your visit to Purity relaxing and anxiety-free, please take the opportunity to visit Purity so you can meet the team and explain your concerns. Only if you are completely comfortable with the idea of sedation would treatment commence..
