Dental phobias are becoming increasingly common, so if you have anxieties around visiting the dentist, we can help! From the moment you walk into our Plymouth practice, to the when you leave after treatment, our expert team will make you feel at ease throughout. Don’t just take our word for it, use the relevant button below to see a selection of our reviews from other nervous patients of ours at Plymouth Dental.

Dental Treatment Under Sedation

Sometimes our calming and supportive practice support staff or our clinicians excellent chair-side manner isn’t enough to help more anxious patients to feel at ease. That’s why we offer IV sedation to our patients to help them feel calm at all times during their appointment. An extremely safe method to greatly reduce stress and anxiety, IV sedation is a popular solution among our patients. More information regarding this can be found below…

What is IV Sedation?

Intravenous (IV) sedation is a drug that is administered through an injection, which is normally placed in the back of the hand. The effects of the treatment is described as a similar relaxation to sleep, although IV sedation doesn’t actually cause a patient to fall asleep – rather they will remain conscious, be able to follow instructions from the dentist but be in a deep state of relaxation throughout. The treatment is extremely safe and will greatly reduce any worries or anxieties that a nervous patient may have during their visit – it’s also great to help patients that have a strong gag reflex.

Finance Options

We’re firm believers that excellent dental care should be accessible to all. That’s why we offer finance options to spread the cost of treatment into manageable monthly amounts, to suit any pocket. Our 0% finance option means that you pay for your treatment and only that, with no hidden fees or interest rates. So don’t let cost be an obstacle in achieving your perfect smile!

Terrified and needing emergency treatment, I found Plymouth Dental Centre of Excellence. My Appointment was with Chad. By far, he is the best Dentist I have ever been to. I didn't feel a thing, even now a few hours later! He and the Dental Nurse/Assistant were amazing. Honestly, do yourself a favour and get registered here. I've registered the family, we are not going anywhere else!

Fantastic treatment today. After a few bad experiences I was nervous, but no need. Lovely friendly team with pain free treatment, smiles and plenty of TLC. Great receptionist who was really friendly, I would highly recommend.

Being someone who is petrified of the dentists, never have I ever felt so relaxed and reassured when attending appointments. When I first went for my initial consultation I thought that nothing could be done to ‘fix’ my teeth, make me smile with confidence and be able to eat out with friends without worrying about a dental disaster. I am now half way through my treatment and last week, 2 of my implant crowns were fitted. My front tooth is fixed and honestly looks amazing!!! I can now smile without worrying. Still a long way to go, but I know that the end goal will be amazing, and I know that I am in the very best of hands with Mitesh and his team. Thank you so much for making me smile once again!

The only dentist for me, been to quite a few. If you want an excellent service, stay pain free and be confident that all the work will last, this is the place to go. Wish I had found them years ago, it would have saved me a lot of grief, pain and worry. Mitesh and all his staff are 1st class.

Finally found a dentist that I'm comfortable with, as I had a bad experience. They are all very welcoming, friendly and understanding. They make sure you are OK at all times. I can now get the treatment I need. Fab, well done.

My Dentist, Chad, is totally brilliant. After my teeth were badly damaged/broken by an NHS practice, Chad has worked wonders putting the damage correct and so far, the results are amazing. As a very nervous patient, (due to what happened at NHS) Chad has helped me go through the repair treatment with his explanation, reassurance and gentle manner throughout. All the nurses working alongside him are also wonderfully caring. The reception staff are always welcoming and friendly. I wouldn’t hesitate to send anyone to this dental practice.

Excellent service & friendly staff! First time to dentist in years, I never felt any pain and I’m terrified of going to the dentist. But I had root fillings and new caps, teeth repaired. Recommend to everyone!

I have just had root canal treatment by Mohamed and Emily M. They were amazing. The treatment was pain free and they have made me less fearful of having treatment done. Thank you.
