Needle Free Sedation Available. The best way to eliminate fear of the dentist.
As you can imagine, the majority of patients who come through our door are petrified of the Dentist. Are you one of those who are anxious or nervous about the dental treatments? Do you hate visiting the Dentist? Do you have a fear of the Dentist? You’re not at all alone. You may be surprised at how many people are anxious about going to the dentist.
Smile Dental Practice in Bromley, will never dismiss the anxieties you feel – we will help you find ways to cope with them best. We offer a friendly, gentle and sensitive approach that is always about what you want, and what you can cope with. We will sit you down and take time to discuss – as a team – what kind of results you are looking for, and what we can do to achieve them. Rest assured any treatment will always be gentle and will happen at a pace you are comfortable with. If our kind and gentle approach is not enough to ease you, we also can offer sedation options, from tablets for mild anxiety to intravenous sedation.
Sedation dentistry uses either a small tablet called Diazepam or an intravenously administered medication called Midazolam. Both methods will help you relax and feel comfortable in the dental chair.
Conscious sedation means that you will be in a state where verbal contact with your dentist can be maintained at all times.
If a patient requires being “put to sleep” or “not wanting to be aware of anything”, then that patient is not suitable for conscious sedation and will be referred for GA (General Anaesthetics).
Here’s a review from one of our patients who chose to opt for conscious sedation:
Since 2001 our group of practices have been administering sedation for patients with dental fear. We find that patients who undergo the treatment have been over joyed with the results and are happy to return to us for any other work.
We truly are proud to be able to offer this alternative to old school dentistry, where you the patient are put first, cared for and walk away with the best, stress free results.
