Sedation Dentistry
in Solihull

We Offer Sedation for Nervous Patients

Sedation in Dentistry is used to calm and relax nervous patients during dental treatment. We use intravenous (IV) sedation which is administered into the patients arm. This type of sedation will put the patient at ease, ensuring the patient is not consciously aware of the dentist and treatment.

My wife had to attend for an extraction under their sedation treatment on the 17th October. She has extreme fear of dentistry however the clinic was mindful of her fears and showed a high degree of care and consideration during and after the treatment…


Nice and Calm and Relaxed

Here’s one of our resident dentists, Shiv, to answer FAQs about gentle, relaxing sedation for nervous or anxious patients.

What Happens to Me
Once I Have Been

Treatment will start once the team is confident that you are fully relaxed and sedated. Throughout the course of treatment the sedation trained nurse and dentist will regularly monitor your pulse and breathing, whilst ensuring that you are comfortable. You will be able to understand and respond to the questions, but you may not remember much about your dental treatment for two reasons:

  • Sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and the patient will not consciously be bothered with what is happening around them
  • For a short period of time the sedatives can provide either partial or complete = memory loss – rendering your whole experience of visiting the dentist as pleasant, calm, and relaxing

As a result it would feel like you had been sleeping for the entire treatment

Lorraine Blyth

I have just finished treatment at Ascent Dental Care and can only thank the team for their care and professionalism. I am a very nervous patient so opted for sedation and was glad I did as I now have a less traumatic memory of having a deep clean and treatment for 2 crowns. Thank you to the team and would recommend this surgery to anyone who is nervous and putting off having treatment. Lorraine
