Richard talks about his experience with nervous patients

One of my recent cases was a young girl, who had not been to a dentist for years and years. She lived with a really bad toothache for a long time. It almost became the norm that she just had this constant toothache. She came to see me and I explained to her that she’d need to have the tooth removed. It was all too much for her, she was in tears. That’s when I told her about sedation dentistry.

We made her an appointment, she brought her husband in and he stayed with her. She had the tooth removed under sedation and it all went swimmingly well. It’s really transformed her and she has been in again since to see me. In fact she’s now become a regular patient with me.

Furthermore she has had another sedation session which has meant that she has been able to have dentistry and sort her teeth out without worry. Before she wouldn’t be able to do that, she was scared of the needle. However she is now building up confidence with me. She trusts what I do and she believes in that when I say that she won’t feel pain. It really made a big difference to her.

The *Feel No Pain Dentistry Six Step Process

Step# 1 – When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by Richard or your dentist. They will then introduce you to your anaesthetist who is going to administer the sedation

Step# 2 – Before we start you’ll have a chat with us and we’ll explain exactly what’s going to happen

Step# 3 – The anaesthetist will then go through some brief instructions with you along with a review of your medical history, just make sure that everything’s okay for the procedure

Step# 4 – We will then take you to the dental room where you’ll be made comfortable. Then you’ll be given the sedation and when you are fully relaxed the procedure will begin

Step# 5 – Afterwards you’ll be taken into a separate room where you’ll be able to relax and come round from the procedure

Step# 6 – Finally, when you’re feeling back to your normal self we’ll be able to go through any instructions and give you some advice before we safely send you home with whoever brings you in


So What Is Sedation Dentistry?

Some patients need a little extra help to undergo dental treatment. For those nervous patients, conscious sedation is available. This induces a state of ‘deep calm’, allowing everybody the opportunity to have the smile they desire. For very nervous patients we can offer sedation, intravenous sedation, taking the anxiety out of the treatment.

Conscious sedation allows even the most nervous of patients to undergo any dental treatment. Sedation dentistry enables you to be kept awake throughout the entire procedure, but you will feel relaxed and likely won’t remember much about your treatment.

Our goal is to make your procedure painless and to also make it so you’re not aware what’s going whilst remaining conscious. Less than an hour later you can walk out the building with a friend or family member having experienced a treatment that otherwise you wouldn’t be able to go through.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

One of the major benefits of sedation dentistry is that people often feel like their dental procedure lasts only a few minutes, when in fact it might have taken hours to perform. Therefore, complex dental procedures such as smile makeovers or extensive rebuilding procedures that normally require multiple visits can often be performed in fewer appointments.

If you are reluctant to change the appearance of your smile because you are afraid or anxious about undergoing long or complicated dental procedures, sedation dentistry can make you feel comfortable during the treatment process and help you achieve a smile you can be proud of.

See What Our Patients Say

"I've never had a fear of going to the dentist"

Highly recommended. Richard is my dentist who sees my whole family and has done for years, he is the best in the business (in my opinion). Katie the hygienist is the only one I like seeing and so glad she’s back from maternity! Due to these two I’ve never had a fear of going to the dentist.

Says G Betambeau

"always so kind and understanding"

Angela O’Regan is a truly wonderful dentist. She is also always so kind and understanding. I truly do not know where I would be without her. Ruth is my dental hygienist. She too is excellent and always so helpful in every way. They are both amazing and I am always so grateful to both of them.

Says E Mills

"I've regained trust in the dental profession"

If it weren’t for Andrew Prynne and the amazing team at 740 Dental I don’t know if I’d have ever regained any trust in the dental profession. More importantly, our children are happy and confident to attend their appointments and take on board all the advice offered to them. We always feel fully informed and I know that their comfort with any procedures is of upmost importance to the whole team.

Says C Wilson

"extremely skilled, always friendly & welcoming"

I was previously a nervous patient but can’t even remember that now. I lost a front tooth in an accident in my twenties, we struggled keeping a bridge in place. He suggested I get an implant. He is extremely skilled, always friendly & welcoming. Quick to sort out any dental emergencies. Ruth is my hygienist and she is also amazing.

Says C Drummond

"Literally the best dentist I have ever been too"

Literally the best dentist I have ever been too! I’ve always been scared and had huge anxiety attacks whilst in the waiting room but since moving here, Andrew has made me feel so comfortable and I don’t dread going to the dentist. Lovely staff, can’t fault anything.

Says A Meek

"understands people's fears of dentists"

Sharon is really good and I would highly recommend her for anyone who struggles going to the dentist. She is kind, takes things at your pace and understands peoples fears of dentists. Thank you so much.
