I have had dental work done both here and abroad. Every time I went in, it hurt. Then I met Dr. Cheong. He assured me that it wouldn't hurt, and, at first I was very nervous. But he was right! It was completely painless. I feel very grateful now, because I am not afraid to see the dentist anymore.
At Twickenham Dental Care, we appreciate that many people are nervous or anxious about visiting us. We treat all our patients with understanding and compassion. Often just allowing the patient to take things at their own pace, and offering support along the way, is all they need to enable them to undergo treatment.
However, we also appreciate that some people still need an extra helping hand, and so we offer sedation therapy. This is also known as conscious sedation or twilight sedation. It makes you pleasantly drowsy and relaxed, but still able to comply with our requests during treatment. Often patients remember nothing at all about their treatment afterwards.
Sedation therapy is much safer, easier and quicker than going to hospital for treatment under general anaesthetic.
We also offer sedation for particularly long or complex procedures, such as root canal or dental implant treatment.
