Nervous Patient Treatments In Bromley
IV Sedation / Nervous Patients
The most common reason for putting off visiting the dentist is fear. Often, patients put up with unnecessary pain and discomfort for months until it becomes unbearable because they are afraid of visiting the dentist. An easily-remedied dental problem then becomes more difficult, more invasive and more costly to treat.
There are many reasons for this fear: a bad past experience, difficulty in getting numb with local anaesthetic, a phobia of the smells or sounds of the dental surgery, sensitive teeth. . . Sometimes, there’s no logical explanation for the fear, but whatever the cause, sedation can make a big difference. Using IV sedation, you will be fully relaxed for the duration of your treatment, experiencing no pain and remembering little of the treatment afterwards. You will also be monitored continuously to ensure you are medically well.
At All Smiles we have an in-house anaesthetist, Molly Hedley, who is also Chief Resuscitation Officer for Kings College Healthcare Trust. Molly will sedate patients within safe guidelines, and the practice also has full resuscitation facilities in the unlikely event of an emergency.

HOW DOES SEDATION WORK?
As well as helping nervous patients to relax, the use of IV sedation enables us to complete multiple procedures in one appointment, which otherwise may be too tiring or uncomfortable.

- ZFear of dental treatment, dentists or the smells and sounds of the surgery
