Sedation

If you are afraid or anxious at the prospect of visiting the dentist, sedation dentistry is available to you during most procedures. Our caring and compassionate dentists help you receive the dental treatment you need and deserve, without fear or anxiety

The method of sedation you receive is customised to fit your anxiety level and treatment type. From mild to more advanced, available sedation options include:

  • Nitrous oxide: Also known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide helps you relax during minor dental procedures. People with highly sensitive teeth and moderate anxiety levels benefit from this method.
  • Oral conscious: You will take medication prior to treatment, leaving you awake yet deeply relaxed. This option is recommended for those with a sensitive gag reflex.
  • Intravenous: Most fearful patients prefer this method. When the medication is administered, you enter a ‘twilight’ stage and remember little of the procedure
  • General anaesthesia: This method lets you sleep through the treatment and wake up with no memory of it

To experience the benefits of sedation dentistry, call your closest Quality Dental Care practice. Our first-rate dental teams have been provided their local communities with compassionate and patient-dedicated care for years, and will help you calm your dental phobia enough to get the treatments you deserve.

The Wand

No needle anaesthetic available at Quality Dental Shoreham only

The Wand uses a unique new technology, which is unlike any other. It works at a low pressure and a slow rate that gives and improved anaesthesia. The wand uses a small hand piece that looks like a pen. This system gives a supply of anaesthetic in a slow comfortable manner.

We know that some patients get more nervous than others at the mere sight of a needle and syringe. That’s where the Wand – a small lightweight handpiece that resembles a pen. The computer controlled system allows for an even-flow delivery of anesthetic in a very comfortable, non-threatening manner.

It eliminates the “bee sting” effect – the painful consequence from a surge of fluid into a confined tissue area. Even more, certain injections made possible with the Wand minimize the unnecessary numbness of the tongue, cheek, and face.

If you have needle phobia then The Wand is the perfect solution for you, no more painful local anaesthetic injections!
