Sedation Dentistry


Dr Abeer Al-Adhami is a Dental Phobia Certified dentist Click Here to verify.

Sedation dentistry is an option available at Abi Dental which enables us to help very nervous patients to overcome their dental phobias.

Have you been putting off going to the dentist because the very thought makes you feel anxious and nervous? If so, we may be able to help.

We know that there are a growing number of people that simply just avoid going to the dentist and as a consequence put their dental health and general health at risk.

Often, dental problems are left unattended until the very last moment and may result in more drastic treatments being required.

Through sedation dentistry, patients are able to undergo dental treatments without any of the fear and anxiety that accompanies the treatment.

What is sedation?

Here at Abi Dental, our approach to sedation is to use the latest techniques in Intravenous (IV) Sedation.

IV sedation means that you will be given an injection which makes you feel sleepy. It does not actually induce sleep; instead, you remain conscious and can follow instructions from our dentist.

However, the feelings of relaxation will be intense enough for you not to remember much about what happened during your treatment. This is because the drugs that we use for this kind of sedation can bring about full or partial amnesia, from the time you begin to feel the effects of the sedation, to the time the effect wears off.

Is sedation dentistry the right choice for me?

Anyone who is in need of dental treatment, either for health or cosmetic purposes, but has anxiety and fear about undergoing treatment, or has an extreme fear of needles is likely to benefit from sedation dentistry.

In particular you may benefit from sedation dentistry if;

Even if you have no dental phobias, you could still benefit from sedation if you have to undergo a procedure that may cause u to be anxious, or for a one off treatment that you would much rather be unaware of, for example implants or extractions.

Unlike most dental surgeries that charge by the hour for an anaesthetist, at Abi Dental intravenous is carried out by Dr Abi Al-adhami and all assisting staff are S.A.A.D certified therefore allowing us to charge per session rather than per hour which keeps the cost down considerably for the patient, so whether your appointment is for 1 hour or 4 hours the cost is the same.

Is it safe?

IV sedation is extremely safe but is not an available option if you are pregnant or have a history of glaucoma, lung or kidney problems and allergies to the sedative drugs that we use.

Also older patients are generally not recommended for IV sedation.

Sounds Interesting – How can I find out more?
