While we make every effort to make your visit as comfortable as possible and do everything we can to put you at ease while you’re here, we also offer intravenous sedation for adults for those times when you need a little extra help to relax.
At Gatrad and Associates, we use a form of “conscious sedation.” Your dentist will administer the medication via injection. You will still be awake during your procedure, but the sedative will ensure you stay calm and relaxed throughout. You may not even remember the procedure.
After your treatment, you will be given all the time you need to come around naturally. Our team of healthcare professionals will look after you until you’re ready to leave the practice. We recommend arranging for a chaperone to attend the appointment with you and take you home.
If you consider yourself a nervous dental patient, please let us know how we can make you feel more at ease when you book your appointment.Back to treatment
