We spend a lot of time and effort to allow our clients to become comfortable and build up trust in us. If however, you still feel anxious and would like the benefit of being in a dream like state then there is always SEDATION.

Sedation can be used to carry out treatment on patients who are nervous. At Integrated Dentalcare we offer intravenous sedation. This is administered by our specialist oral surgeon giving you the added peace of mind of having one surgeon monitoring and maintaining your relaxed state whilst the other one transforms your mouth into a more beautiful and healthy environment.

INTRAVENOUS SEDATION is a reliable and effective means of producing a relaxed state with a rapid onset of action. Additionally an amnesic effect is achieved which affects only the memory of that procedure and short time afterwards. According to our specialist, “it is similar to being drunk after a bottle of whiskey or gin, but without the hangover the next day.”

GUIDANCE ON SEDATION:
