We completely understand that coming to the dentist can be a worrying experience. Whether it’s due to a previous experience or a phobia of needles, we can help put your concerns to rest. We make sure that all appointments are taken at your pace and your comfort is always the priority.
Intravenous sedation is a very safe and reliable method of controlling dental anxiety and phobia. After having sedation, you will still be conscious and lucid, only completely at ease. Many patients do not remember much or any of their procedure.
Our consultant anaesthetists work in Southampton Hospital. They all have great expertise in the fields of sedation and general anaesthesia. They are able to provide modern, safe dental sedation here at Guinea Court Dental Surgery in partnership with your usual Guinea Court dentist and are equipped and skilled to deal with all eventualities.
You will need to bring a responsible adult with you as the effects of the sedation will last after the treatment. They will need to stay with you for the whole day and look after your transport as you will not be able to drive for 24 hours following the treatment.
We will talk through how best to prepare for your sedation before we book you in.
