Sedation Dentistry

Woman in dental chairIf you start to feel anxiety when you think of going to the dentist, you’re not alone. It’s all too common that people have a phobia of dentistry, often due to a negative experience in the past. At Smile Creation, we often care for patients who used to feel nervous and now get through their appointments with ease.

Dr Sanjay and the entire team take their time with each patient to ensure they’re comfortable. It is our main goal to give you a positive experience in our practice, so that you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. Communication is something we take a lot of care in with our patients.

Comfortable Dental Care

One of the options available to you is an oral conscious sedation. This solution allows you to sleep through your dental appointment, waking up with little to no memory of the procedures performed.

Our fully qualified dental anaesthetist will monitor you throughout the procedure, ensuring that everything goes smoothly.

Your anxiety is kept under control while you’re completely comfortable and relaxed. In fact, several procedures can be performed in a single visit that might ordinarily take months or years to complete.

The recovery from the anaesthetic can take from one to three hours. We recommend you have someone to pick you up after your appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions
