We are delighted to welcome Dr Christopher Ford to the team at Gracefield Dental. Chris has over 15 years experience as a dentist and has a specialist interest in helping nervous patients overcome their fear and anxiety and to leave Gracefield Dental with a positive experience and the smile they deserve.
Many of our patients tell us of an experience, perhaps in childhood, that has left them feeling very nervous and which may have stopped them from attending a dentist for preventative screening. They now may be in a position where some dental treatment is required but they feel very anxious about it.
How can we help nervous patients at Gracefield Dental?
At Gracefield Dental we provide IV sedation to help calm and relax anxious and nervous patients. The IV sedation is given by injection into the back of your hand or in your arm. You will feel drowsy and unaware of any treatment, but will still be able to respond and cooperate with your dentist.
How will I feel after the IV sedation?
You will have none or very little recollection of any dental treatment carried out. You may feel slightly drowsy or sleepy but this will wear off throughout the day. It is very important that you do not drive, take alcohol or operate machinery for a period of time prescribed by your dentist.
