Sedation for nervous patients

Dentistry today is very different from how it was ten or twenty years ago. Modern techniques and equipment means many of the procedures we carry out are virtually painless, or at most a little uncomfortable.

However, it is still not unusual for patients to feel worried or anxious about visiting us. In most cases, our friendly and reassuring manner can help to relax them, but sometimes they feel they need an extra helping hand to get through an appointment.

At Emstrey Dental Practice in Shrewsbury, sedation can be provided by Dr Mona Trivedi who has over 18 years experience in helping nervous patients.

IV sedation is administered via a tiny needle, which is usually placed in the back of your hand and does not usually hurt.  It makes you feel pleasantly drowsy and relaxed, and most patients do not remember anything of the treatment afterwards. It takes longer to wear off, so you will need someone to take you home and stay with you.

If you are worried about seeing us, please do not be embarrassed – we will work with you to find the best way of helping you to have and keep a healthy, happy smile.

Please contact our practice in Shrewsbury on 01743 272632 or email emstreydentalpractice@hotmail.com for more information or to book an appointment.
