IV Sedation

We understand that fear of the dentist is a very common anxiety, which can prevent people from receiving the treatment they want or need.

At Penryn Dental Practice, our experienced clinicians can offer IV sedation to help patients who feel nervous or worried about a procedure. This means you no longer have to suffer in pain, or hide a smile you’re embarrassed by – let our team help you discover a beautiful smile and great oral health.

IV sedation induces a really deep state of relaxation, which also leads to a loss of memory for the period it’s being administered. Many people assume they were asleep during the treatment, however patients are actually awake and responsive at all times. Some describe it as ‘like having time fly’ where one minute the sedation was being administered and the next thing the treatment was over.

If you suffer from any form of dental phobia or anxiety, please speak to one of us about IV sedation. Your comfort and the ability to eat and smile with confidence is our top priority.

I was put immediately put at ease when I entered for treatment and all the staff were so friendly and reassuring which is great as going to the dentist isn’t usually a relaxing experience. Everything was explained really clearly. It is a great practice.
