Mile End Dental Clinic knows that sometimes breathing and relaxation techniques are NOT enough. Here at Mile End Dental Clinic, we offer conscious sedation, both intravenously and via inhalation for those with needle phobia.

The Procedure

You will come for your appointment as normal, but require a chaperone to help you home safely. Specially trained Dental Surgeons and anaesthesiologists will monitor you throughout. They will check your heart rate, breathing and dissolved oxygen levels.

The treatment will then be carried out without the awareness of anything happening, but you will still be able to respond. When you wake from your dreamy state, your treatment will be over and you will have forgotten the whole thing. Sleepy dentistry, conscious sedation, has been used by Mile End dental Clinic for many years. It is practised throughout the world and is a very popular choice for those with dental anxiety.

Inhalation Sedation, (laughing gas)

Nitrous oxide is a gas which you can breathe in. It has no colour or smell, Nitrous oxide works very rapidly – it reaches the brain within 20 seconds, and relaxation develop after 2 or 3 minutes.

Intravenous Sedation:

A anti-anxiety drug, is administered into the blood system during dental treatment. The drugs won’t send you to sleep –but you are calm and relax so deeply you probably won’t remember much of what happened. Please speak with a member of our team for details.
