What is Intravenous Sedation?
It is a safe and highly effective technique to treat nervous patients by placing an injection at the back of your hand. The drugs have a relaxing and calming effect but do not stop communication between yourself and the dentist. Weight, age and medical conditions are assessed before suitability for intravenous sedation. This service is provided by arrangement only at Westbury Dental Care.
What is Oral Sedation?
Oral sedation is a popular treatment option for many people because it does not require the use of additional needles. Sedative tablets (dependant on patients’ medical condition) are given before the treatment to dull the senses so you feel much calmer and relaxed.
