Is dental sedation safe?

In recent years, an increasing number of people have been taking advantage of sedation dentistry to overcome their fear of the dentist and feel relaxed during complex (or not so complex) dental procedures. Sedation dentistry has improved the relationship between dentists and their patients considerably – so there is no excuse for visiting the dentist anymore. However, as with other dental treatments, some people are concerned about the safety of dental sedation.

Dental sedation comes in different forms and depending on your individual situation, your dentist for nervous patients in London will recommend an appropriate approach. At Care Dental Platinum, we have managed to gain the trust and reliance of our patients through the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM, a holistic and very safe approach to dental sedation. This technique involves the combination of dental and psychological elements that help patients feel relaxed throughout the dental procedure, no matter how complex the treatment is.

We all fear what we do not understand

Sedation dentistry is still new to many patients and for this reason, there is a lot of misinformation around it. At Care Dental Platinum, your dentist for nervous patients in London, we are here to answer all your questions and give you as much information as possible on the Enjoyable Dentistry TechniqueTM. This technique is performed in three stages by our certified dentist.

During the first stage, your dentist will provide a customised hypnosis treatment together with laughing gas, which is made of oxygen and nitrous oxide. Concentrations may vary between patients but it is usually a 70% to 30% combination. Then, your dentist for nervous patients in London will give you information and guidance about the treatment through a series of relaxing images, whose purpose is to take your mind off negative thoughts related to the treatment. When we proceed to the actual treatment, we will ensure that local anaesthesia has been applied and that you are protected from any unpleasant smells and sounds.

At Care Dental Platinum, we use pain-free dental tools and equipment to alleviate any discomfort. If you wish to know more about our dental treatments, contact us today and we will dispel the fears brought to you by unreliable information.
