Sometimes in order to feel relaxed at the dentist you need a little extra help. Here at Dentistry 390, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible which is why we offer London sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry should not be confused with general anesthesia. It is a treatment to relieve dental anxiety and stress and will allow you to undergo necessary treatments successfully.
We provide two methods of sedation dentistry. The first is oral sedation. Oral sedation requires you to take pills before your scheduled appointment. The pills will put you at ease for a few hours. You will need to have someone drive you to and from your appointment and will need to rest for the remainder of the day and avoid driving or other activities that require full attention. Our other method is nitrous oxide or laughing gas. Nitrous oxide is deliveredby breathing in a gas through your nose during your appointment and makes you feel less anxious and more relaxed. With nitrous oxide, you can drive yourself to and from your appointment as the effect is only present while breathing in the gas.
If you’ve been putting off necessary dental care, we’re here to help you.
