If you feel anxious about seeing a dentist, please know that you are not alone. Dental anxiety can be a huge hurdle for some people. At Carlton Dental Care we have gone the extra mile to create a safe, reassuring environment and our empathetic and caring staff are here for you at every step. If you need a little extra help to relax, sedation could be the answer. 

Sedation is different from general anaesthesia where you are put to sleep completely. With sedation, you remain conscious and responsive throughout the treatment. However, you will feel fully and deeply relaxed and may not even remember the event afterwards.

Get help to gradually overcome your anxiety

At Carlton Dental Care, we recognize that dental anxiety and fear of pain can be significant barriers to receiving necessary dental care. Our sedation dentistry services are designed to provide a comfortable and stress-free experience for patients who may feel apprehensive about their dental visits. We offer a range of sedation options tailored to meet individual needs, ensuring that each patient can undergo treatment in a relaxed and pain-free manner.

Our sedation dentistry services include options such as oral sedation and intravenous (IV) sedation. Oral sedation involves taking a prescribed medication before your appointment, allowing you to feel deeply relaxed and less aware of the procedures being performed. IV sedation provides a deeper level of sedation, administered directly into the bloodstream by our trained professionals, ensuring a state of complete relaxation and comfort.

The team at Carlton Dental Care is highly trained in administering sedation safely and effectively. We carefully evaluate each patient's medical history, anxiety levels, and specific needs to determine the most appropriate sedation method. Our primary goal is to eliminate pain and stress, making your dental visit as pleasant as possible.

By choosing our sedation dentistry services, you can undergo even the most complex procedures without fear or discomfort. This approach not only improves your overall experience but also allows us to perform multiple treatments in a single visit, saving you time and reducing the number of appointments needed.
