Dr Geraldine Honan has been working hard over many months to gain her postgraduate qualification in Conscious Sedation. Conscious sedation is a carefully controlled technique whereby a patient is brought to a deeply relaxed state, decreasing anxiety and facilitating dental treatment in a safe controlled way. It involves the use of a sedative drug that will induce a state of calm deep relaxation, being unaware of the sights, smells and sounds of the surgery.
This has been a revelation for nervous patients who have had difficulty attending the dentist in the past. We are delighted to be able to offer this service to our patients at Bridge View Dental, if you are curious about conscious sedation and how it can help you, you can find out more here https://bridgeviewdental.ie/conscious-sedation/
