Sedation Dentistry - DB Dental
Fearful about visiting the dentist? Sedation dentistry may be the solution for you.

Being fearful of a visit to the dentist, or dentophobia, is quite common. Often a conversation with your dentist can be enough to allay certain fears but if you are still unsure, sedation dentistry is an option you may want to consider.

What is sedation dentistry

Also known as sleep or twilight dentistry, it is an advanced form of sedation that uses a combination of relaxing and pain-relieving drugs to ensure patients are comfortable and pain-free during their procedure.

Usually the patient is not fully unconscious, but rather in an induced sleep-like state. When you ‘awake’ you usually don’t remember anything about the procedure and it will feel like no time has passed.
Sedation dentistry is ideal for patients who:

  • Suffer anxiety, have a low pain threshold, a fear of needles or a strong gag reflex.
  • Require complex or multiple treatments in one session.
  • Have other medical conditions, for example autism spectrum disorder.
  • Don’t endure the agony of a toothache or have years in between check-ups because you fear a trip to the dentist. DB Dental has post-graduate qualified and experienced sedation dentists on staff to help with your anxiety.
