Sedation Dentistry

At Cherrybank Dental Spa, we understand that you may need some extra help over and above our spa environment! Sedation treatments offer a variety of methods of reducing anxiety. We can offer:

Oral sedation

This is a prescription of medication that can be taken one tablet the night before, on the morning of and one, one hour before. You will be a bit drowsy and it is very important that you do not drive and are accompanied to your appointment.

Inhalation sedation

This is available in our practice and is a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen. This is a very safe form of sedation which is suitable for children and adults. Recovery is quick and you are able to drive afterwards.

Intra-venous sedation

This is very popular if you are really nervous or phobic of dental care. The sedation is provided by a trained professional and can be deep or light. Many of our same day smile cases utilise this form of sedation as then you are really unaware of having had treatment. In certain cases, we can also use other medications with the sedation which can provide enhanced pain relief and reduce any post-operative swelling. Again, a chaperone is essential and we can provide this service if required.

Your dentist and treatment co-ordinator can discuss all of the above options and advise of their suitability, taking any existing medical conditions into consideration.
