Smiling, friendly and gentle dentistry at Kingswood Dental is the best cure for anxiety and nervousness...

Conscious sedation is a form of anxiety control which makes treatment more pleasant for the patient. It is effective, predictable and very safe.

Conscious sedation is the modern alternative to general anaesthesia for most dental procedures. It can be given in a number of ways. Intravenous sedation is the most commonly used form in adults. Your dental surgeon will advise you if any other techniques are appropriate.

Conscious sedation will make you feel sleepy and relaxed. Most patients can remember little or nothing of the procedure, but it does not affect any part of your memory before the drug is given.

Following sedation, you will need to stay at the practice until the dental team is satisfied that you are safe to be accompanied home by a responsible adult. This is because your judgment may be affected for the next 24 hours. Conscious sedation is a very powerful and safe way of reducing anxiety to allow dental treatment to be carried out.

Two of our dentists at Kingswood Dentalare well trained and highly qualified (from the UCL Eastman Dental Institute, London) in dental sedation.
