In the short term, will you feel completely calm and comfortable, enabling dental treatment to be completed and the results you want for your smile to be delivered without stress or anxiety, but the results can be much further reaching.
Dental sedation will allow clients to associate visits to Ollie & Darsh with a feeling of tranquillity rather than dread and in the long term this means that crucial appointments are not missed due to phobias, allowing even the most nervous of clients to overcome their fears and enjoy improved dental health.

Dental sedation is completely safe and can help to calm and relax you. It can also reduce the fatigue associated with extended dental treatments, which can require longer visits.
The numbing process is also likely to be more effective in calm patients and when you’re relaxed it will take less time for our clinicians to perform treatment, meaning less time in the chair for you.
