Are you a nervous patient?
Get your dental treatments under IV or inhaled sedation at Gants Hill Smiles for a stress-free experience.
We use inhalation sedation, which is a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen ('laughing gas'), this leads to a very relaxed and calm feeling, just like floating on a cloud.
It is very comfortable as you just need to breathe in the mixture through a nosepiece.
You are conscious all through treatment, you will feel no discomfort, although you may feel a little drowsy.
There are no after-effects either, and you can drive a car after about 15 minutes.
The goal of IV sedation is to relax the patient and alleviate the anxiety associated with surgery.
Medication will be given intravenously in your arm or hand to help you relax and feel comfortable.
IV sedation is a conscious sedation during your dental treatment, causing you to have no recollection of it happening.
