We appreciate that many patients are uncomfortable or nervous when it comes to dental treatment. For such patients, treatment can be made easier by the use of sedation. The sedation techniques we use are safe & comfortable. You may not be put to sleep, but may think you have been asleep, and in many cases may not remember anything.
Our multi skilled sedation team is headed by Dr. Jane Ford , who has attained postgraduate qualifications in Sedation, and is highly experienced. Our sedation clinics are carried out at the Newcastle branch where we offer both types of sedation:
Intra- venous sedation : Where a small injection in the back of your hand enables the sedative agent to make you more comfortable. It is traditionally known as twilight sleep..
Inhalation Sedation: Where nitrous oxide (happy gas) is given together with oxygen to make you feel relaxed. This technique particularly good for nervous children.
