Frightened of the dentist?

Many people are extremely nervous or phobic about visiting the dentist and will find it difficult to undergo any treatment. For some people, their only option of having any treatment done is with sedation.

The patient will be fully aware of their surroundings after treatment and will be able to leave the surgery of their own accord.
