It is estimated that 60% of the world are scared of the dentist. Unfortunately, this means that many will avoid attending the dentist.
Enhance Dental offer patients the opportunity to have their dental treatment under conscious dental sedation. This means you will be able to communicate with us throughout your procedure, but you probably will not remember much after the appointment. It is an excellent way of having your dental treatment if you are dentally anxious.
At the heart of our skilled sedation team is our sedation dentist, Alex Asquith. Here’s what he has to say about providing care for anxious patients:
“I take pride in helping people overcome their fear of the dentist. I find understanding where the dental anxiety has come from is of great benefit because then you can plan small steps in order to gradually make the patient feel more comfortable. Over the years, I have managed to help quite a number of patients overcome their dental anxiety using sedation, and now some of those patients are quite happy having treatment without sedation.”
Enhance Dental are happy to accept referrals from other dental practices for IV sedation. Please state on the referral if you would like us to perform the treatment under IV sedation or if you would like us to provide the IV sedation only.
