We at Dental on Raffles realize that a proportion of the public don’t get dental treatment because of dental fear. This can be for a myriad of reasons.
We certainly empathize with you and have developed very successful ways to help most through their dental treatment.
Using oral sedation in the form of a tablet 30 minutes before treatment takes the edge off ones anxiety and it has been described as being “like you’ve had a couple of wines”. Obviously one is still awake, co-operative, but in a more relaxed state. This is a very nice way to get treatment.
Intravenous sedation is carried out where a deeper level of sedation is required with many opting for this when having major surgery e.g. wisdom teeth removal or multiple fillings.
This sedation can create a loss of memory aspect and patients find it very agreeable to bypass demanding treatment. We administer this medication via a vein in your arm.
