Pain free Dentistry is possible with your oral sedation Dentist in Putney

At Gentle Dental Putney, we understand that many people avoid the dentist due to stress, anxiety, or fear. For many, this fear can have major impact on their oral health and cause problems to worsen and affect their overall wellness. We understand this fear and we want out patients to feel comfortable in our chair. Oral conscious sedation allows patients to feel comfortable and relaxed when they are in our office. Whether the care is preventative or restorative, we can help you take control of your oral health.

Oral sedation works by having a relaxing effect on the patient. It is administered in the form of a pill and is taken prior to coming into the office for an appointment. By the time you arrive, the sedative will have already begun having a relaxing effect on you.

The level of sedation achieved is completely dependent on the dosage. For patients who require a lighter sedative, a smaller dose is administered. With a slightly higher dose, patients are able to achieve a deeper level of sedation. Patients are still conscious during oral sedation and are able to respond to requests and instruction. Moderate sedation levels are ideal for patients who are facing multiple or lengthy procedures.

With oral sedation, patients will need to secure a family member or friend to drive them to and from the treatment. Most patients will feel groggy as the medication gradually wears off and will have little to no memory of the procedure.

Oral conscious sedation helps our patients achieve their goal of pain free dentistry. In addition to the sedative, local anaesthetic is also used to minimize pain and maximize comfort. Over time, we find that many patients who have previously received sedation are able to find comfort again in our office and receive treatment with only the aid of local anaesthetic.

Our number one goal is to make sure our patients have healthy and beautiful smiles. Dental anxiety is a very real emotion that can get in the way of that goal. With our compassionate care and oral sedation, we can help our patients realize the benefits of regular dental care.
