Sedation Dentistry

Did you know that one out of seven people suffers from dental anxiety? Unfortunately, it is a common issue, and people who suffer from it avoid going to the dentist, which leads to more severe consequences.

If you, a family member, or a friend has dental anxiety, we can help by offering sedation dentistry. At Sapphire Dentistry in Doncaster, we go the extra mile to ensure the patient is comfortable during the dental treatment and has an overall positive experience.

Types of Sedation We Offer

General Anaesthesia

General anesthesia is the deepest form of sedation, and with it, the patient doesn’t hear, see, or feel anything. General anesthesia provides 100% pain relief and amnesia, so the patient doesn’t remember any details from the procedure. Our General Anasethitc sedation is done externally with an Anaesthetist.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is provided as a pill that relaxes the patient. During your initial visit to our Doncaster dental care clinic, our dentists will review your medical history and determine if this is the right type of sedation for you.

Twilight Sedation

The dentists administer twilight or IV sedation into a vein close to the skin surface. Each IV drip consists of anti-anxiety medications that relax the patient while the dentist performs the dental procedure.

It is one of the most preferred sedation dentistry methods among patients who desire deep sedation.

● High levels of fear
