I don't think I can cope with injection in the gum......
11th February 2019
No one likes having dental treatment. Some of us manage to accept our dentistry with the help of an injection in the gum, (local anaesthetic). Some of us however require alternative methods of pain and anxiety control. There are a number of these, which can be used either alone, or in conjunction with the familiar local anaesthetic.
At Christopher Holden & Associates your dentist will understand your anxieties and will be pleased to discuss your options. Conscious sedation is one option that helps many of our patients to accept the dental treatment that they so desperately need....
Conscious sedation is a form of anxiety control which makes treatment more pleasant for the patient.
It is effective, predictable and very safe.
Conscious sedation is the modern alternative to general anaesthesia for most dental procedures.
Where general anaesthesia was used in the past, progressive hospitals, clinics and practices now use conscious sedation.
Conscious sedation in dentistry is highly regulated.
Dentists, doctors and anaesthetists are required to be specially trained in this subject.
There is strict guidance from the Department of Health and the Royal College of Surgeons and Royal College of Anaesthetists to ensure your safe and comfortable care.
This practice has nearly 30 years of experience.
