Our team at A and L understand that many people may have developed a dental phobia from a previous bad experience at the dentist. We believe everyone should be able to have excellent dental care and treatment therefore we can provide IV conscious sedation for nervous patients.
To carry out conscious sedation, a combination of medicines are used to help you relax and to block out any pain. An intravenous line is inserted either via your arm or hand, and a sedative is administered via this line. You will begin to feel drowsy and relaxed very quickly.
You may fall asleep, but you will wake up easily and be able to respond to the dentist when necessary. This is very helpful when carrying out dental treatments as the dentist will be able to communicate verbally with you throughout your treatment.
After conscious sedation, you may feel drowsy and not remember much about your procedure. Thanks to conscious sedation, our patients can feel at ease that dental treatments can be carried out without any recollection of the treatment taking place, leaving the clinic feeling positive and with a sense of achievement.
Just had my first trip to the dentist in years without having a panic attack..the girls spent time with me explaining and reassuring me before my treatment started. I will return every 6 months now.
Wonderful team and so friendly, made me feel at ease right from the start. I have recommended many of my friends who all say the same. I only wish I had a dentist like Dr Lina years ago.
A different breed of dentist, if you’re dental phobic go to these guys.
