At HDS we can use these different techniques either alone or in combination. So for nervous patients it reduces or eliminates pain and control anxiety during most dental procedures. Under sedation for example you are aware and can still communicate but you are in a sleepy and relaxed state. We appreciate that every patient is different and by offering a variety of ways to help you feel confident, our aim is for you to feel relaxed and in control throughout the treatment. Sometimes just listening to music or playing relaxation CDs during treatment is enough to allay any nerves.
