When needing dental care, patients may be unsure whether they could have a tooth extraction under sedation. Some dentists may not offer this service. This may be because they do not have the facilities to do so or they may be limited on time for each appointment. However, Pearl Dental Clinic offers sedation options for all dental treatment, even during emergency appointments.
Dental phobia or anxiety is a very common issue in the UK. More than a quarter of the population suffer from some kind of fear or nervousness related to visiting a dentist. Due to this, some people may avoid visits altogether, while others may have very stressful experiences.
Some common dental fears include:
Many patients find that sedation is the ideal way to access the treatment they need without the crippling fear, anxiety, or stress that they would experience without it. The most common sedation techniques are IV sedation, oral sedation, and nitrous oxide (laughing gas). As a result of sedation, patients feel relaxed, stress-free and are unable to remember the treatment afterward.
