Dental sedation services for nervous patients in Watford
At Adrian Mullish Dental Care, we have put a great deal of thought into making sure our patients feel safe and relaxed during dental treatment. Our procedures are all carried out by caring and considerate professionals who place a strong emphasis on pain-free treatment.
When our considerate approach isn’t enough, we offer dental sedation to patients who are feeling very nervous or anxious about going ahead with treatment.
Oral sedation involves medicine that help you relax (a sedative). As the name would suggest, you stay conscious throughout so you are able to communicate and stay in control of the treatment being undertaken but it greatly reduces any fear or anxiety.
For patients requiring something more than light oral sedation, we also offer intravenous sedation given by a consultant anaesthetist.

How can you help me overcome my dental anxiety?
We offer intravenous sedation or oral sedation as it is also known, to very nervous patients. One of the main benefits is that you will feel the treatment has only taken a matter of minutes when it may have taken hours. This allows complex dental treatment, which may normally take several visits, to be completed in fewer appointments. Please don’t neglect your dental wellbeing because of severe anxiety – speak to us, we can help
Can I come in to look around the practice?
Of course! All new patients are welcome to come in and get a feel for the practice before committing to joining or commencing treatment. We want everyone to feel as comfortable as possible and be assured that they’ve made the right choice.
What happens at my first appointment?
Our priority is to get to know you. You will meet with Bev our Treatment Coordinator who will guide you through your journey with us. Our new patient appointments aren’t rushed, giving us the time to get to know you and complete an oral examination at your pace, so we can understand how to help you achieve better dental health.
Do I have to commit to treatment immediately?
Sometimes all we will do during an initial appointment is talk, with no obligation of having an examination or even sitting in the dental chair! Sometimes, nervous patients may want to look around, find out about our approach and get a general feel of the practice. We don’t want to rush anyone into something they may be uncomfortable with.
Nervous patients benefit from getting to know the practice as part of a complimentary, no-obligation consultation with our Treatment Coordinator.
