Are there any dentists that can put you to sleep during treatment?
Q. hi my teeth are really bad, i had not been to the dentist since i left school and im now 28, i made up the courage to go the other day and they said i havent looked after my teeth very well at all, i have a black whole were a filling came out on my front tooth and one of my back teeth needs taking out and about 4 fillings i need, but my problem is im terrified of dentists and i dont know what to do as i cant find a dentist that will put me to sleep why they do the work, i have not tried any privert dentists as i dont pay for tratment at the moment but if i could find one i would happy pay so i didnt have to go though the pain, do you know a price as well on how much this work would cost? and if there is any were that would put me to sleep while he work is being done.,
A. Thanks for your question, although it is unusual for a dental practice to offer general anaesthetic for treatment, many do offer Intravenous sedation. This induces a dream like state, but you are still conscious, allowing the dentist to carry out your treatment. This facility is available at some NHS practices, but would normally be a chargeable service. Your dentist may be able to advise you of local dentists in your area who are able to offer this service. I wish you well with your treatment. Kindest Regards. Dr Kailesh Solanki.
