Around 50 per cent of the population does not visit the dentist – and a quarter of those fail to do so because they are too afraid. These statistics cause us great concern at The Smile Centre in Liskeard.
Poor dental health is linked to heart disease, bacterial lung infections, premature births, diabetes and strokes, meaning regular visits are vital to maintaining good general health and wellbeing.
We offer intravenous sedation, or conscious 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.
