Dental Anxiety? Learn How Sedation Dentistry Can Help You

If you suffer from anxiety at the thought of seeing a dentist or have dental phobias, let us help you. Our dental team has enormous experience in assisting people with dental phobias in overcoming these feelings. Dr Khaled and his team are kind, compassionate and caring and can work with you to ensure you can receive dental care comfortably, free from fear.

Dr Khaled has carried out extensive research into the safest and most effective forms of dental sedation. Penthrox, a sedative that is inhaled through the nose is a light sedative suitable for people with mild dental anxieties. People with more deep-seated dental fears or who require lengthier or more complex treatments could benefit from intravenous sedation. Treatment can also assist people who struggle with a strong gag reflex or to stay still in the dental chair. With intravenous sedation, Dr Khaled can often carry out more treatments during a single appointment, restoring dental health more quickly and comfortably.

What is Intravenous Sedation?

Intravenous sedation is sometimes called sleep or twilight dentistry, as you will feel so deeply relaxed you may actually fall asleep. The sedative is given continuously through your arm, and you are monitored the entire time closely. Your comfort and safety is our top priority, a medical specialist anaesthetist provides customised sedation services to Lakeside Dental Spa, and ensure our patients receive the very best care.
