If patients are fearful of the dentist they may want to find out how they can make treatment more accessible by asking their dentist, “What is sedation dentistry?” Pearl Dental Clinic offer a sedation service on all treatments for those that feel nervous or fearful. This can ensure patients are relaxed and comfortable. Sedation is also available during emergency appointments. The staff at the clinic are trained in supporting patients with dental phobias and, therefore, can help to make the process as stress-free as possible.
Dental phobia can take all manner of forms. What one person is fearful of may not be an issue for another patient, and vice versa. However, sedation dentistry can help with any kind of dental phobia. Even a fear of needles can be appeased by a special device called The Wand. Here is a list of different phobias associated with the dentist:
At Pearl Dental Clinic there is the choice of IV sedation for nervous patients or the painless injection system (The Wand) for patients who are fearful of needles. Sedation can also help patients who have difficulties getting numb through anaesthetic.
IV Sedation: IV sedation is a controlled way of inducing a relaxed, dreamlike state through the use of sedative drugs. It is administered intravenously by a trained anaesthetist and is monitored throughout the process. Many people find that this method helps them to access the treatment they need in a calm way.
The Wand: The wand allows people who are scared of needles to have anaesthetic. The wand looks like a pen rather than a syringe. It also delivers the anaesthetic in a pain-free way. This is especially helpful for pediatric dentistry.
