Sedation

Sedation for Nervous Patients

Here at Escentics we appreciate that many people may be nervous of seeing a dentist indeed for a chat or worse for treatment. This may be due to past bad experiences in childhood. Our surgery is extremely inviting and relaxing and our waiting room has aromatherapy essential oils and relaxing music to reduce your fears and anxieties. We have ensured that we have created a feeling of warmth and positive energy when patients visit us.   At the initial consultation with you (that may not involve even looking into your mouth) – just to discuss your fears and we shall offer you a variety of methods to overcome your fears of dentistry.
Upon deciding to go ahead with treatment we do offer the use of DVD glasses so you can watch your favourite movie whilst having treatment.
We also offer sedation which is a technique that introduces a intravenous agent – Midazolam that is a sedative and will relax you making it much easier for you to have treatment for longer procedures. Midazolam is a very safe drug that will have its sedative effects for only 15 minutes per ml given to you via a cannula in your arm. We have a visiting Sedationist Dr Etienne Deysel who will be happy to talk through the procedure and any concerns you may have.   There are many ways we can help to reduce your dental anxiety at our practice – so why not pop through for a chat with us or call us on 01895 258700.

IV Sedation will make you become drowsy and unaware of any treatment but you are still able to co-operate with the dentist. The effects of a sedative medicine take some time to wear off and your dentist will tell you how long the drugs will take to clear from your body. During this time you will not be able to drink alcohol, drive or work machinery.
 
Sedation £200.00 per hour per visit
