At Aurora Dental & Implant Clinics, our priority is ensuring the comfort of our patients, which is why we offer sedation for tooth extraction. We understand better than most that going to the dentist isn’t always everyone’s favourite thing to do, but we believe that this should not be the case.
We offer sedation for tooth extraction alongside our other services, read on to learn more about this service and how it can help you to smile again.
When we mention dental sedation, we’re referring to medication we use to help patients relax during their treatment. This can, and in many cases does, mean that our patients opt for sedation for tooth extraction. In general, we use sedation to make procedures much more tolerable, which is particularly beneficial for nervous patients and those with dental anxiety.
At Aurora, we use IV sedation, which means that sedatives will be administered intravenously. IV sedation will not put you in an unconscious state, unlike deeper forms of sedation for tooth extraction, such as general anaesthetic.
As you will still be conscious, you will be able to respond to any instructions given to you by our friendly team, whilst remaining relaxed throughout. This will lower your levels of anxiety and we hope that sedation, paired with the high level of care by our staff, will make you feel more positive about visiting us in the future.
Your initial consultation will be with our Sedationist and founder, Dr. Carl Lazzari. During this appointment, he will ask you some questions about your medical history and your preferences when it comes to your dental treatment at one of our 4 Wiltshire-based clinics.
If you are particularly nervous, we are happy to discuss this option with you. Otherwise, we might suggest alternatives such as self-hypnosis or the use of positive affirmations, which many find to be incredibly helpful.
Book your initial consultation here.
