Sedation for Nervous Patients in Hitchin

Bancroft Dentistry is an acknowledged provider of IV sedation for nervous patients – we have over 20 years’ experience in this safe technique.

As you may be aware from past experience, not every dental practice is equally adept at helping nervous patients to gain confidence. Here at Bancroft Dentistry, we treat all our patients – however nervous they may be – with the same understanding and respect.


We’re a friendly and welcoming practice where patients’ needs always come first, and we’re committed to the principle of painless dentistry.


But these aren’t the only reasons why nervous patients tend to recommend us. We offer practical help for people who have genuine fears about coming to the dentist, including those who may have put off important dental work for years due to anxiety or needle phobia.

IV Sedation for Nervous Patients

We understand that for some people, visiting the dentist can be an anxious experience – sometimes it’s an illogical fear and on other times it is because of something that may have happened in the past.

We, at Bancroft Dentistry, pride ourselves in taking an unhurried approach and gentle, caring attitude to how we work – but sometimes a little more help is needed.


We have been performing IV Sedation for dentistry at this practice for over 30 years, helping patients get the dentistry they need and want but have been too nervous to go that extra step.


We have sedation trained nurses and dentists on hand to help you the process easily.


Initially, a small assessment is made to see if you are suitable for this treatment and so that we can explain what you will feel and what to do on the day and afterwards.


A very small injection is made in the arm on the day and the sedative then gets to work.


The feeling is one of feeling very relaxed and comfortable (you remain awake throughout so that you remain safe BUT you will need someone to take you home)


Several thousand patients have been treated in this way at Bancroft – feel free to contact us if you want to know more!
