Sedation for dental phobic patients

At Guildhall we offer the services of a Consultant Anaesthetist, who will be present at your appointment and will manager the administration of your anaesthesia.

This will leave your dentist in a position to be able to concentrate upon undertaking your dental treatment whilst the anaesthetist monitors your vital signs.

We also employ sedation trained nurses at the practice who will assist with your care. The whole dental team who are involved with sedation services receive extra training in life support.

We want you to be in safe hands at Guildhall

Around 50 per cent of the population does not visit the dentist – and a quarter of those fail to do so because they are too afraid. At Guildhall Dental, these statistics cause us great concern. Some evidence suggests that poor dental health is linked to a number of general diseases such as heart disease meaning regular visits are vital to maintaining good general health and wellbeing.

We offer intravenous sedation to nervous patients, one of the benefits being that patients feel the treatment has only taken a matter of minutes when it may have taken much longer. This allows complex dental treatment, which may normally take several visits, to be completed in fewer appointments.
