What Will Happen on My First Visit?

This depends on your level of anxiety, for most patients with dental phobia entering a dental surgery on their first visit, in an already unfamiliar environment is distressing.  So we may suggest you come along to the practice beforehand and meet a member of our team.

For those patients whose level of dental phobia will allow them to enter the surgery on their first visit, we will carry out a full new patient consultation. This involves a full intra and extra oral examination, X-rays if needed. You will have plenty of time to ask as many questions as you like.  We will always take things at your pace and only carry out treatment only when you are ready. Following your appointment if you have any more questions, just get in touch with a member of our team will be more than happy to help.

IV Sedation Nottingham

Intravenous sedation (IV Sedation) is a type of sedation dentistry in which the dentists use a proven, safe medication to keep you relaxed while completing the dental procedure. This drug is injected with a thin needle into a vein. You will remain conscious and will be able to respond to the dentist at all times, but will be much, much more relaxed. A lot of dental sedation patients tend to sleep through the procedure and have very little memory of the treatment afterwards. All patients are fully assessed before the procedure, their vital signs are monitored throughout, our dentists and their assistants have undergone additional practical and theoretical sedation training and all undergo regular intensive refresher training at the SAAD (The Society for the Advancement of Sedation in Dentistry) training facility in London.
