Dental fear and anxiety affects up to 15% of the population. It can affect both children and adults preventing them from seeking dental care.
One of our main goals here at Citygate Specialist Dental Clinic is to create an environment where all our patients feel calm, relaxed and comfortable during their visits. Every effort will be made by our team to ensure our patients are at ease from their first consultation right through to the end of their treatment.
People with severe dental anxiety can require sedation to help them cope with dental care. We offer the following types of sedation here at Citygate Specialist Dental Clinic:
- Inhalation Sedation
- Intra-venous Sedation
- General anaesthetic
Dr Mc Cafferty provides inhalation sedation for children and adolescents here in Citygate Specialist Dental Clinic. Dental treatment for children under general anaesthetic is carried out in the Bon Secours Hospital Cork.
Dr Mc Auliffe provides inhalation and intra-venous sedation for adult patients here in the practice and provides treatment under general anaesthetic in the Mater Private Hospital Cork
