At Penryn Dental Practice we can offer IV sedation to our patients to help overcome this anxiety. Quite often this treatment is referred to as ‘twilight sleep’ however that can be a misleading term as you remain conscious throughout.
IV sedation induces a really deep state of relaxation which also leads to a loss of memory for the period it’s being administered. This leads to many people assuming they were asleep during the treatment. Some patients have described 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 as your comfort is what matters most to the entire team.
