Dental Sedation Nottingham | Sherwood Dental Care

Trust in us with dental sedation

Feeling anxious about visiting the dentist is more common than you might think. At Sherwood Dental Care, we want all our patients to have a positive experience and feel comfortable, pain-free and relaxed during treatment. That’s why we offer dental sedation here at our Nottingham practice.

We also favour an individual approach, where we’ll listen to our patients and take your unique concerns and considerations into account.

The benefits of dental sedation

Dental sedation is a great option for nervous or phobic patients, especially those who avoid booking in for check-ups because of the condition. There are numerous benefits to dental sedation, including:

  1. Having a relaxed, sleepy, calm state
  2. Being unaware of the specifics of your treatment
  3. Helping manage pain

The sedation won’t send you fully asleep – you’ll still be able to talk to your dentist, but you may not remember what went once your treatment finishes.

    asked questions
    Everything you need to know about sedation

    • We offer dental sedation to nervous or phobic patients. We’re experienced in treating a range of patients of all ages and dispositions, and can often identify who would benefit from the treatment.

    • Familiarising yourself with our friendly team and welcoming clinic can go a long way in making you feel more comfortable. We also recommend bringing a friend with you, or having music on during your treatment. Finally, booking an appointment at a quieter time, such as early morning when it’s less busy, can help you feel more calm.

    • Any kind of anaesthesia carries a risk, but this is minimised through an experienced dentist. There are certain people who we may not recommend dental sedation for, however, including those who are obese and those who have obstructive sleep apnea.

    • We use IV (intravenous) sedation, where the sedation drug is injected into a vein. The level of sedation can be adjusted during your treatment. Dr Vitesh Patel himself carries out our sedation treatment.
