Anxiety-free dentistry is possible! Relax and receive the care you need with our gentle approach and sedation options.

Do dental visits make you anxious or evoke memories of past unpleasant experiences? At Mile End Dental Clinic, we understand the challenges some patients face, and we're here to make your experience as comfortable as possible. Our compassionate team specialises in anxiety management techniques and procedures to help you overcome any fear associated with dentistry.

Our warm and friendly staff are dedicated to alleviating your fears, and our highly experienced dentists are committed to soothing your anxieties about dental visits. For those who find traditional relaxation techniques insufficient, we offer conscious sedation options, both intravenously and through inhalation, catering to individuals with needle phobia. Conscious sedation, or "sleepy dentistry," has been successfully practiced by Mile End Dental Clinic for many years, providing a popular choice for those with dental anxiety worldwide.


About 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. After waking from your relaxed state, your treatment will be complete, and you may not recall the experience.


Inhalation Sedation (Laughing Gas)

Nitrous oxide, a colorless and odorless gas, is inhaled to induce rapid relaxation. It reaches the brain within 20 seconds, with a calming effect typically experienced after 2 or 3 minutes.


Intravenous Sedation

An anti-anxiety drug is administered into the bloodstream during dental treatment. While not inducing sleep, these drugs create a deep state of relaxation, often resulting in limited recollection of the procedure. For further details, please consult with a member of our dedicated team. Your comfort and peace of mind are our top priorities at Mile End Dental Clinic.
