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
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
You wouldn’t know from speaking to her that Jean is a nervous patient. Her smile proves that anyone can get the care they deserve from Ascent Dental.
Nothing to it!
The phrase root canal is enough to send some patients running for the hills. Hilary explains how gentle sedation makes the process comfortable and painless.

Fantastic dentist , managed to fit me in same day and extract wisdom tooth that previous dentist had made a real mess of . So happy and pain free at last .
Excellent customer service, the team really looked after me, answered all my questions, explained what was going on in my appointment. I made some enquiries for teeth alignment and they were fab, gave me all the information I needed. Highly recommend Ascent to anyone, particularly, if like me, you get nervous about a visit to the dentist!!
Received the best introduction to you guys through Chanel this morning. She was very helpful in guiding me to the correct package and information to fit my needs, super friendly and patient 10/10 for customer assistance
Made me feel relaxed when I was feeling a bit anxious, really friendly & knowledgeable about what they are doing & sent me off feeling very confident. Followed up with a courtesy call the next day.
Really pleased with my treatment so far 👍👍 …
I would like to say big thank you for an amazing Dr Aneka and the entire team of Ascent Dental for their support in my journey to achieve my dream smile, you have really changed my life and made me the happiest person in the world!..
I have just finished my treatment with Ascent Dental after 6 months of having Lingual braces to adjust crowding in my upper teeth. I have been very impressed with the service given to me, and would thoroughly recommend the practice to anyone looking to improve their smile. Dr Gursh Bajwa made the treatment comfortable, yet effective, and I am very happy with the results. I would like to thank all the staff at Ascent Dental for the high level of care and service they have given me.
I discovered the one clinic whilst searching periodontal treatments in my area on google…I felt no pain just a small amount of discomfort, he reassured me throughout in a professional and caring manner….The caring and considerate attitude of all involved showed that they cared for my dental health past present and future. I asked about future treatments, and DR Nissen advised me according to my needs .At no point, did I feel that the costs involved were the main aim but that his genuine concern was to help me gain control of my dental health.
I was hesitant at first to spend money on my teeth. I’m 60 years old and have a fear of dentist’s due to experience over the years. I have had the time of my life! I am no longer afraid to laugh or smile. AJ is amazing and kind and patient! The whole team are wonderful absolutely worth the money! Confidence is well and truly boosted! Thanks guys ❤️
I have been visiting Ascent Dental for a year now as I required an implant to one of my front teeth. I have been treated by Dr Faresh Desai and I have found him to be very skilled technically and someone who has extremely high standards with regard to his treatment and the appearance of the finnished product. I would recommend him and his team, who are all very friendly and efficient. Before choosing Ascent Dental I explored a number of other dentist who all came up short with regard to my expectations, but Faresh has met all of them and as such I have now had a second implant.
I recently went to Ascent Dental Care for a scheduled cleaning and mentioned I had chipped a tooth and wanted some other work done. Doctor Coughlin arranged for my tooth to be repaired and for my other work to be done immediately after my cleaning, despite the practice being busy at the time.
I have recently finished my treatment and I couldn’t have asked for more. I have the confidence to smile again and all within 6 months…..pretty amazing! The team at the practice are professional and friendly and really put you at ease. I had no problems booking appointments around my working day which was an extra bonus. I would 100% recommend this dental practice!
I had my teeth whiten here and was amazed by the results. Great care and information from Doctor Yasmin Shajarchy would highly recommend them to anyone
