Bariatric dental chair
It is important that patients feel comfortable and supported whilst receiving their dental treatment. We have bariatric facilities at our clinics in Gloucester, Stroud and Cheltenham.
Patients weighing up to 204kg can be seen in surgeries at the Gloucester and Stroud clinics, where we have dental chairs designed to support larger patients.
Patients weighing up to 500kg can be seen in surgeries at the Gloucester and Cheltenham clinics, using specialist reclining equipment.
Who will benefit from this service
The Wand is an injection system which replaces the traditional syringe. Using computerised technology the Wand delivers a supply of anaesthetic in a slow comfortable manner.
We provide a panoramic X-ray machine that takes a two dimensional image of the entire mouth. It is quicker to take than a traditional dental x-ray and the image is clearer and can benefit a lot of our patients.
We are able to offer dental treatment with Inhalation Sedation for children and adults who experience dental anxiety. Patients are usually referred to our service by their dentist and must meet our acceptance criteria.
Very young children and patients with special needs may not be able to receive routine dental care such as extractions in the dental surgery in the normal way. It may be necessary for treatment to be performed under General Anaesthesia.
Patients who are unable to transfer to a dental chair and do not use a wheelchair which can be reclined, can be treated in surgery at our clinics in Gloucester, Stroud and Cheltenham.
