At Marriott & Hand we have the solution for you…

With sedation dentistry it is now easier than ever to get that much needed dental treatment. The beauty of sedation dentistry is that there are a variety of options to suit everyone’s needs.  From inhalation sedation such as Penthrox to general anaesthetic, we’ve got you covered.

Too often the reason for people not visiting the dentist is fear of the dental chair or fear of the sights and sounds associated with getting much needed dental treatment. No more! Thanks to sedation dentistry those fears can now be a thing of the past. Whether you need orthodontic, restorative or general dental work sedation dentistry can help you through your dental appointment.

Sedation dentistry…

There is nothing wrong with being afraid of the dentist. Lots of people have negative associations with many medical professions; however with advances in technology we can offer sedation dentistry which allows you to undergo the treatment you need without having to worry about the sights and sounds that might be putting you off.

Penthrox is a hand-held device that makes administering it much easier than nitrous oxide which requires a mask to be worn. It is a form of analgesia which will allow you to sit back relaxed with one of our skilled and friendly dentists and assistants give you the dental service you need and deserve.

For more complex procedures we can use a general anaesthetic; this will render you completely unconscious and allow our dentists to perform whatever dental treatment you require. One of the benefits of going under general anaesthetic is that multiple treatments can often be performed in one go. This means fewer dental appointments for you!
