Helping You Feel More Comfortable and Relaxed

Here at Burgess & Hyder Dental Group we offer a range of anxiety management techniques to help put you at ease, including conscious sedation.

Why Choose Conscious Sedation?

We understand that coming to the dentist can sometimes be a daunting experience, but feeling nervous about an upcoming procedure is perfectly natural. If you do feel apprehensive, then conscious sedation is a great option to ease your concerns and reduce anxiety and discomfort.

It is designed to help you relax and make your visit an easy and trauma-free experience. So you can get the treatment you need to maintain good oral health and get the teeth that you desire and deserve.

Conscious Sedation at Burgess & Hyder Dental Group

If you choose to have conscious sedation then you will remain awake throughout your appointment but you will feel calm, relaxed and pain-free throughout. However, possible side effects include drowsiness, memory loss, slow reflexes, low blood pressure, headache and feeling sick.

We offer two conscious sedation options at Burgess & Hyder Dental Group, these are:

Inhalation Sedation

This involves a small mask being placed just over your nose. It is a good option for children, mildly anxious adult patients and those with a strong gag reflex.

Intravenous Sedation

With this method, the sedative is administered via a small plastic tube that is usually placed in your hand. It is often the better choice for more anxious patients.

Book a Free Private Sedation Consultation

To allow you to make an informed decision and decide whether conscious sedation is right for you, we offer a complimentary consultation. This is designed to provide you with an opportunity to ask any questions and have your concerns alleviated. The dentist will also conduct a suitability assessment and give you a detailed treatment plan, including costs.
