The Adult Dental Health survey are in and they showed that a third of patients suffer from moderate dental anxiety, with one in eight experiencing ‘extreme’ dental anxiety. This can be due to many causes, ranging from a difficult childhood experience, to a painful and uncomfortable past procedure.
But many patients are unaware of the significant advancements that have been made to reduce discomfort and anxiety during dental examinations and treatment.
Here at GDC Liverpool, we offer IV sedation to patients who may find dental treatment daunting. With conscious sedation, you remain completely relaxed and comfortable, whilst being able to co-operate fully with your dentist.
The best part about it is that you won’t remember a thing- the drug induces memory loss from when it’s administered to when it wears off, meaning you don’t have to relive your dental treatment!
There are no side effects from conscious sedation and is the perfect solution for a nervous patient. To learn more about IV sedation, please get in touch with us today.
