At the Clifton Dental Studio we go above and beyond to make our patients feel comfortable and we offer sedation, as well as relaxation-themed packages, to help patients to feel calm and reassured before and during treatment.
Our practice is peaceful and welcoming, our team is highly experienced and caring and we offer the latest techniques and therapies to benefit nervous patients and help them to overcome anxiety.
Sedation at Clifton Dental Studio
Dr Neil Gerrard is a certified provider for sedation and he has many years of experience working with nervous patients. He has a very relaxed, warm and compassionate nature and he helps patients to deal with anxiety and cope with dental phobia so that they are able to go through with the dental treatment they need.
Sedation is a very popular technique, which prevents patients from feeling pain and enables them to feel completely relaxed before and during a dental procedure. This technique uses sedative medication to induce a state of complete calm and restfulness. Patients don’t feel pain when they have treatment and don’t have much recollection of what has happened after they come around. Sedation isn’t the same as general anaesthetic and it doesn’t carry the same risks, as patients do not lose consciousness. The effects of the drugs wear off within 24 hours and no overnight stay is required.
The spa experience
In addition to dental treatments, we also offer a relaxing spa experience to make patients feel as comfortable as possible during their time with us. We are happy to put music or a film on for you, we offer massage and aromatherapy services and we can even arrange an overnight stay in a hotel if you are travelling for treatment. We also offer hot towels and hand paraffin wax treatments.
Our practice is Dental Phobia Certified.
