Sedation may be offered to control anxiety and make treatment more pleasant for you. It offers an alternative to general anaesthesia for most dental procedures. Intravenous (or 'IV') sedation is given by injection, either in the back of your hand or in your arm. The dosage we give you will depend on the treatment you need and the time it will take to complete.
Our dental team will put you at ease by talking and explaining the process to you in full. Although you may feel a little drowsy, you will stay conscious at all times.
IV sedation is regarded as safe for people over the age of 12 when performed by expert dental professionals like ourselves. However, patients with complex medical problems or unstable medical conditions may not be suitable for treatment under IV sedation.
Please bear in mind you will need to be accompanied by someone responsible for at least 6-12 hours after.
IV Sedation costs from £150 per session plus the treatment charges. Please see Sedation and Implant Price list
