Dentist’s sedation is a great way for patients to manage dental phobias. Around a quarter of the UK population suffer from nerves, anxiety, or fear surrounding dental visits, dental treatment, or needles. Therefore, Pearl Dental Clinic offer IV sedation and Painless Injections to help nervous patients access the care and treatment they need in a calm and relaxed way.
Oral sedation: Oral sedation is available on prescription and is taken a short amount of time before entering the clinic. For patients who are needle phobic, this is a good sedative option. The oral sedative comes in various strengths and helps people to feel more relaxed.
IV Sedation: IV sedation is generally stronger than an oral sedative. IV sedation is administered directly into the bloodstream so it works much faster. Patients under IV sedation will be in a state of deep relaxation and are unlikely to remember anything afterward. This means that the treatment can be performed without worry or anxiety.
Painless Injections: The painless injection (also known as The Wand) is available for patients who have a phobia of needles. The painless injection uses a pen-like device instead of a traditional syringe. This alone can help put patients at ease. The Wand also delivers the anaesthetic in a controlled way which means that the recipient does not feel the stinging pain associated with a traditional needle and syringe.
