Dental Implants and the Revolutionary All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure
We are one of only a few dental practices in Cheltenham specialising in dental implants and are proud to be at the forefront of dental implant technology. Dr Ledger has successfully completed many revolutionary solutions including All-on-4 dental implant procedure and ‘Teeth in A Day’ a truly state-of-the-art and remarkable procedure that can restore new permanently fixed teeth in a day.
Arnica Dental Care has extensive experience of sedating nervous, anxious patients using inhalation sedation (also known as relative analgesia). This involves the patient breathing a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a comfortable-fitting nose piece that allows dental treatment to be carried out simultaneously. Inhalation sedation is ideal for anxious children and adults with a hypersensitive gag reflex.
Few dental practices in Cheltenham and even the Cotswolds are qualified to sedate patients with intravenous sedation. Intravenous sedation is where sedatives are administered through a cannula into a vein in the arm or the back of the hand. This technique changes the patient’s level of consciousness so that even the most dental phobic patients can tolerate dental treatment, and although they remain conscious they often remember little about the procedure.
