We are very fortunate to be able to offer sleep dentistry here at Hartwell Dentistry. This means that there is no need to undergo risky general anaesthetic procedure at the hospital for minor dental work.
Sleep Dentistry. It is often referred to as “Twilight Sleep” or “Twilight Sedation” or “Conscious Sedation”. It is the most advanced form of dental sedation available. It is gentle and safe. Sleep Dentistry uses a combination of sedative and pain relieving drugs to create a drowsy and dream-like state of deep, calming relaxation for the entire duration of your dental procedure. It is a modern, safe and highly effective technique that will make your visit to the dentist a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable experience.
Who can have sedation?
As a guideline, sedation is provided principally for patients aged from 12 to 70 years, who are in good health.
So if you feel anxious, phobic or faced with a difficult procedure ahead, dental sedation can take away your anxiety away.
