    How we help patients with dental anxiety

    DentalPhobia Certified

    Dr Mia Zhand is a Dental Phobia Certified professional. We have a special interest in dental anxiety and take great pride in helping nervous patients, including with IV sedation. If you’ve had a bad experience getting dental work in the past – perhaps as far back as childhood – we understand why you might avoid seeing the dentist unless it is absolutely necessary. But the problem is, this creates a vicious cycle. If you wait until you are in pain before seeing a dentist, it is more likely that your dental treatment will be uncomfortable and invasive – which only reinforces your fears, and causes you to avoid the dentist again. At Kensington Dental Practice, we want to help our nervous patients break that cycle. With the help of high-tech methods like IV sedation, we can create positive, pain-free experiences of dental treatment, wiping the slate clean on dental fear, and putting nervous patients back on the path to long-term oral health.

    Your IV sedation dentist in London

    Also known as conscious sedation, IV (intravenous) sedation is an effective way to treat the most nervous of patients. The procedure involves an injection of an anti-anxiety sedative (Midazolam), either in the arm or the back of the hand. The needle is very light and thin, and we can use a special numbing cream if you are needle-phobic. Midazolam has three key benefits: it causes you to feel completely relaxed and calm; it makes you sleepy; and it has an amnesiac effect. Patients usually believe they slept through the whole procedure, remember very little of it, and feel as though the time passed in minutes. Unlike a general anaesthetic, IV sedation doesn’t prevent communication; your dentist will be able to rouse you to ask questions if required, though it is unlikely that you will remember afterwards.
