Dentists in Derby, Derbyshire 44 Main Street, Etwall, Derby, Derbyshire DE65 6LP
Sedation dentistry is an effective and safe technique that enables you to be comfortable and relax during treatment. It also allows our team to work efficiently and quickly on nervous patients.
At Etwall Dental Practice, we offer intravenous (IV) sedation to our patients. This method of sedation is a fast-acting and effective way of helping those with dental phobias remain calm during treatment.
The sedative will be administered directly into a vein in your hand or arm through a needle. You will begin to feel relaxed very quickly, allowing your dentist to get to work. Afterward, you will have little to no recollection of the procedure and will feel as though you were sleeping.
Once your treatment is complete, you will be transferred to a recovery room where members of our team will care for you until you are fully alert.
It can take up to 24 hours for the effects of sedation to wear off, so you must arrange for a chaperon to meet you at our practice and accompany you home. You will likely still feel drowsy, so it is best to take it easy for the remainder of the day.
Following the governments most recent announcement on Saturday 31st October 2020 of second national lockdown, we would like to reassure all of our patients that we shall continue to REMAIN OPEN and we endeavour to look after your oral health.
Since our initial opening on 8th June, following the first lockdown, we have implemented strict measures by enhancing our infection control standards to ensure we can continue to practice in a COVID SECURE way for our staff and patients. We now know a lot more about how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and we shall ensure this is revised when any new information is presented so that we can continue to work safely and protect our NHS where possible. As we are a medical facility, all staff will continue to wear PPE and we encourage all patients to adhere to the measures in place on visiting the practice.
We have made it our upmost priority to keep all of our patients and staff safe throughout these challenging times. If you are required to self-isolate or have any Coronavirus symptoms please follow the government guidelines and we would be happy to rearrange your appointment to a suitable alternative.
Can we remind all patients that face masks are mandatory on entering Etwall Dental Practice and your temperature shall be measured by a member of staff at the door.
We hope you and your families stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.
Etwall Dental Team
