At Watford Smiles, we have put a great deal of thought into making sure our patients feel safe and relaxed during dental treatment. Our procedures are all carried out by caring and considerate professionals who place a strong emphasis on pain-free treatment. When our considerate approach isn’t enough, we offer dental sedation to patients who are feeling very nervous or anxious about going ahead with treatment.
Oral sedation involves medicine that help you relax (a sedative). There’s no need to worry, as you stay conscious throughout so you are able to communicate and stay in control of the treatment being undertaken but it greatly reduces any fear or anxiety. For patients requiring something more than light oral sedation, we also offer intravenous sedation given by an anesthetist.
