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.
Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.
Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.
From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.
Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.
We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.
This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
