Sedation for Nervous Patients
Sedation for Nervous Patients

At The White House Dental Surgery we know that nervous patients above all want to be listened to and not rushed, so we take our time and explain all aspects of any treatment. We will always ensure you are relaxed and comfortable before starting. One way we can help those with a dental phobia is by offering sedation.

  • IV – Intravenous Sedation – this technique is effective for even the most anxious of patients. It involves the administration of a drug into the blood system by injection in the arm or hand. It is quite painless and produces a feeling of relaxation and sleepiness so that dental treatment can take place.
  • Oral Sedation (tablets) – oral sedation in the form of tablets can be taken at home or at the practice with a drink. It takes about half an hour for it take effect. As a pre-medication, the tablets relieve anxiety of dental treatment and help you to relax.
Hypnotherapy for Nervous Patients

We are also pleased to offer our patients the option of hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is a heightened state of concentration and focused attention.

Guided by a trained, certified hypnotist or hypnotherapist, hypnosis allows you to be more open to suggestions to making healthful changes in your perceptions, sensations, emotions, memories, thoughts or behaviours.

It is a very useful tool in helping anxious patients overcome their fears of dentistry.
