At Align & Smile, we offer intravenous sedation, also known as IV sedation, which involves injecting sedative medication into the arm or the back of the hand. Sedation is a means of facilitating relaxation, and it can be incredibly beneficial for patients who are anxious about undergoing a dental procedure. The dose of medication used will depend on the type and duration of treatment.Get in touch
Sedation dentistry involves the use of sedatives, which are designed to help patients to feel more relaxed both before and during dental treatment. Sedation is a practice used widely in medicine and dentistry and it enables anxious patients to feel calm and at ease.
Sedation offers benefits for both patients and dentists. With sedation, our dentists are able to get on with the procedure without worrying about the patient being uncomfortable, and they can work for longer periods of time, which reduces total treatment duration and improves continuity. For patients, treatment is less daunting and they feel completely relaxed during the procedure. We often recommend sedation for patients with severe anxiety and dental phobia, as well as those who require complex procedures.
Sedation dentistry involves undertaking a dental procedure when the patient is sedated using sedative medication. As a patient, you won’t feel any pain, and you should feel totally relaxed throughout.
If you suffer from dental phobia or anxiety or you need a lengthy, complex dental procedure, you may benefit from sedation dentistry. Our dentists are on hand to talk through the pros and cons and make tailored recommendations based on your needs and preferences.
Our sedation fee is £600.
