At 24 Hour Emergency Dentist, we understand that many patients are anxious about coming to see us because they’re worried about pain. If you’ve had negative experiences in the past, you’re seeing a dentist for the first time in months or years, or you’ve sustained an injury that is very painful, it’s natural to feel apprehensive, but we can assure you that you’re in safe hands. We pride ourselves on offering pain-free dentistry in a relaxed, comfortable setting.
About dental sedation
Dental sedation is a technique we use to minimise pain and help nervous patients to feel calm. If you need treatment, we understand that you might feel very anxious. Sedation can help you to feel more relaxed both before and during your appointment. Treatment under sedation involves using sedative medication to induce a state of deep calm. You won’t lose consciousness, but you will feel very relaxed and slightly drowsy. When you’re sedated, you won’t feel any pain, and you probably won’t remember much about the treatment afterwards.
Who can benefit from dental sedation?
Sedation is recommended for patients who are anxious about having a dental procedure. If you need a complex course of treatment, or you’re worried about undergoing dental treatment, sedation can help to make you feel more comfortable. If you do have concerns, we are here to help you. We can answer any questions you have about dental sedation, and we can also talk you through the process, so that you can make a decision about whether or not you would like to be sedated. Our team is very friendly and compassionate and our dentists have extensive experience in carrying out sedation dentistry.
If you’d like to find out more about pain-free dentistry or you need urgent treatment, but you’re anxious about seeing a dentist, don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Are you afraid of going to the dentist because you’re worried about pain? Many people are anxious about having dental treatment because they have a fear of pain. In many cases, when we carry out complex procedures on nervous patients, we offer sedation. This is a technique that can help to prevent pain and help you feel more relaxed. If you’re nervous about climbing into the dental chair, here are 3 reasons to opt for sedation:
- Preparing for your appointment: it’s very common for people to feel incredibly anxious in the run-up to a dental procedure. Sedation can help to make you feel less anxious and more relaxed before you go to the dentist, as it gives you peace of mind that you’re not going to be in pain. If you know that you’re going to be sedated and you’re prone to anxiety, this makes the preparation stage much more manageable.
- Comfort and calmness during the procedure: sedation is used widely in medicine and dentistry as a means of helping patients to remain calm while they have a procedure. When you’re sedated, you feel drowsy and slightly sleepy, but you won’t lose consciousness. You won’t feel pain, and hopefully, you’ll find the experience much less daunting. If you’re undergoing dental treatment, it’ll be over before you know it, and hopefully, you’ll feel less anxious about having treatment in the future.
- Pain prevention: a fear of pain is one of the most common sources of anxiety for dental patients. With sedation, we can eliminate the risk of pain, enabling you to undergo the treatment you need without any worries at all. We’ll do everything possible to make sure you’re comfortable throughout the procedure. After sedation, it’s common to feel a little groggy, and we’ll keep an eye on you until you feel ready to head home. We advise asking a friend or partner to give you a lift or accompany you on the tube or train as you won’t be able to drive for 24 hours.

It’s very common for patients to experience nerves and anxiety when they’re faced with the prospect of having dental treatment. Dental phobia is one of the most common fears, and even those who don’t have a phobia can develop feelings of anxiety when they’re sat in the waiting room. At 24 Hour Emergency Dentist, we understand that many patients feel apprehensive, and we are committed to doing everything possible to eliminate pain and create a relaxing, calming environment.
How we provide pain-free treatment
Many patients experience nervousness because they have a fear of pain. Sadly, dental treatment tends to have a bad write-up, and people often feel anxious because of stories they’ve heard or read. If you go into an appointment thinking that it’s going to be really painful, it’s no wonder that you feel uneasy. We are here to allay your fears and help you to feel more comfortable. We use advanced treatments, technology and techniques to reduce pain, speed up treatment and help you to stay calm while you have treatment.
Our dental team is experienced in caring for nervous patients, and we can cater for your requirements. If you’re nervous about having emergency dental treatment, we can provide local anaesthetic to prevent pain, and we may also be able to offer sedation for more complex procedures. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to speak to your dentist. It is our mission to help you to get over your fear and make you feel as confident and calm as possible.
If you do have treatment under sedation, this will make you feel drowsy, but it will ensure that you don’t experience any pain during the procedure. Sedation isn’t the same as general anaesthetic and it is used widely in medicine and dentistry to alleviate anxiety and keep pain at bay. Your dentist will explain exactly what is going to happen, and they will be happy to answer any questions you have.
Dental anxiety can make patients avoid the dentist for long periods of time, which can often increase the risk of injuries and infections. If you find yourself in a situation where you need urgent help, don’t be afraid to get in touch. We are here to help you and we can provide pain-free, hassle-free treatments that will put a smile back on your face.

We offer sedation dentistry for anxious patients and those who suffer from dental phobia. Sedation is a technique that is used widely in medicine and dentistry. It helps to allay fears and make patients feel more comfortable when they undergo a dental procedure. When you’re sedated, you don’t lose consciousness and it’s not the same as going under general anaesthetic. Although you’ll be awake, you won’t feel any pain and you may not remember much when you come around after the effects of the sedative wear off. If you are feeling very anxious about having treatment, the thought of being sedated can be reassuring. If you’d like to know more, our dental team will be happy to give you some more information and answer questions.
