Sedation, a lighter anesthetic dentistry

Sedation means that you receive a relaxing drug before your treatment. Sedation is an alternative to being sedated and is sometimes called light anesthesia. You are not put to sleep during sedation, but you feel relaxed and calm. The drugs effectively remove nervousness and fear, and after the treatment one often only has a vague memory of the treatment.

Sedation, like general anesthesia, is a good option for patients who feel very anxious about going to the dentist. It is also a treatment option for daring to take the first step to treatment at the dentist, and the hope is always that in the long term it will be able to help the patient completely cure his fear of the dentist. Many times it is enough in the end to find the right dentist and clinic where you feel understood and listened to. At TandCity, we work calmly and methodically in a safe environment.

Practical information about narcotic dentistry at TandCity

Before anesthesia, you must fill in a health declaration. The health declaration is assessed by an anesthetist and sometimes additional information may be needed to be able to make an accurate assessment of whether you are a suitable patient. It should be remembered that general anesthesia always involves certain risks, which is why we often recommend our dentist-fearful patients to first try treatment with sedation in the form of sedatives.

Other measures taken for a dentist fear patient

Fear of the dentist sounds very dramatic, but in short it means a greater or lesser degree of discomfort in connection with a visit to the dentist. Often this feeling is due to something you have previously experienced.

Maybe it's all rooted in a childhood experience? There are also dentists who specialize in dealing with patients with fear of dentists in Malmö and who know the importance of adapting the treatment to the conditions.

Methodology and calmness

In the vast majority of patients with a fear of the dentist, the problems are rooted in a lack of control. In not knowing what is going on. A good and methodical way to deal with the stress is then to guide the patient through the treatment. It is common for the dentist to begin by describing the entire process, from start to finish. When the treatment then begins, the patient is continuously informed about each new step. The pace is always calm.


Again, focus on control and the patient in question. There is always the possibility for those who experience fear, pain or discomfort to pause the treatment so that the feeling in question can subside. Professional and service oriented dental care may take time, the most important thing is that the fear does not worsen.


In the first instance, pedagogical or methodological approaches are always chosen in connection with the treatment of a patient with dental fear. However, in some cases the patient has more difficulty handling the situation and then sedatives in the form of Benzodiazepine are a good alternative. Thanks to this, anxiety is reduced, while the muscles become more relaxed. Without the patient falling asleep for the sake of it.
