Sedation Dentistry For Nervous Patients In & Around Carlisle, Cumbria

Intravenous Sedation Dentistry for Nervous Patients In & Around Carlisle & Cumbria

Over many years of dental treatment at York Place Dental, we have found that for many patients, IV dental sedation during treatment is an ideal way of letting go of their fears. Using a safe sedation dentistry technique, we can help you to relax whilst your painless dental care is carried out. You are at all times totally safe and always in verbal contact with us - and you probably won’t remember a thing afterwards! 

Relaxation & Sedation

At York Place Dental we make every possible effort to ensure your experience is relaxed and pleasant no matter how deep your anxiety about dentists may run. Our practice team have learned to take your care and personal feelings seriously: and without judgement. We are quite proud that our patients tell us we have helped them find solutions to years of dental nerves that have held them back from getting proper treatment despite deteriorating oral health!

Preventative Dentistry in Carlisle

Our philosophy is that you should be involved in every decision about your upcoming dental treatment. We will explain all aspects of your dental treatment plan with you in depth; or not, if you find that approach more comfortable.

Sometimes your own or an acquaintance's past bad experience can make the thought of a particular type of dental treatment take you far beyond your comfort zone!

Preventive Dental Practice and the Cancer Connection in Carlisle

What Is Sedation Dentistry

We administer a very safe drug through a vein in the back of your hand or in the crook of your elbow before treatment begins. As the relaxant spreads, it shifts your mental state into a very relaxed place and helps you to cope with your dental treatment.  As you enter this deeply relaxed state of mind, you will be amazed (afterwards) that you could sit completely comfortably without worrying about anything to do with your treatment. It is according to our patients a completely pain free dentistry experience!

We don't use a general anaesthetic, which would put you go to sleep.  While you are under sedation you will still be completely conscious and able to talk to the dentist and nurses treating you. They can also chat back with you as needed and you will be able to answer coherently.  Most patients don’t remember a great deal about their treatment at all. This experience of mild amnesia is a seen as a benefit by some of our most anxious patients.

Still feel scared of dentist chairs and surgeries?
