TYPES OF REFERRAL

The Parkway Clinic offers the only realistic solution for patients requiring General Anaesthetic and Sedation services, who do not want to have their treatment delayed by lengthy hospital waiting lists. These services are also ideal for nervous patients, or those who require particularly lengthy or complex procedures.

Intravenous (IV) is where the sedation is injected, usually in the back of the hand, and makes the patient more relaxed and drowsy under more controllable conditions. Patients often say it feels as if they were asleep during their treatment.

Our facilities at SA1 include two fully-equipped, purpose-built treatment theatres. All sedations are provided by Consultant Anaesthetists.

Referral processes are made quick and simple with supplied Referral Packs in full accordance with General Dental Council Guidelines.

General Anaesthetic is suitable for many patients who, for a number of good reasons, are undergoing treatments requiring more than a Local Anaesthetic or Sedation.  This may be due to the type of treatment, but is especially recommended for nervous and phobic patients who would prefer not to be conscious during their treatments.  We are the only dental clinic in South West Wales licensed to carry out dentistry and minor oral surgery under General Anaesthesia and the only alternative to NHS hospital treatment, if this is required.

If you are unsure which method of sedation or Anaesthesia would be best for you, or if you have any concerns, our Specialists will be happy to speak with you.  Both of these options require prior completion of our Medical Questionnaire with a discussion on the procedures and suitability for individual patients. 

Our primary focus is on a safe and gentle environment for your dental care. We will guide you through your treatments with a high level of care and attention.
