Help for the Nervous Patient
For many people, visiting the dentist can be a frightening experience.
At DJ Maguire Dental Group our teams are fully trained in helping nervous patients relax naturally before any treatment.
However, because your comfort is our top priority, we also offer Conscious Sedation to help ensure your fears are reduced as much as possible.
The Conscious Sedation is given gently by an injection in either your arm or the back of your hand. The sedation takes effect very quickly and though you will feel drowsy during your treatment you will still be able to respond to any questions your dentist might have and cooperate with them fully.
The sedation can also cause temporary amnesia so it’s likely you will have little or no memory of going through the treatment. You will also likely be drowsy or sleepy throughout the rest of the day so it’s important that you do NOT drive, drink alcohol or operate machinery for a period of time prescribed by your dentist.
