IV Sedation

At Kenton Dental Centre, we have a Dental Phobia certified dentist. Dr Ahmed Mahammed is highly experienced in managing anxious patients using various techniques. He is SAAD qualified and has provided IV sedation to over 2500 anxious and dental phobic patients.

The type of sedation used in dental practices in the UK is called conscious sedation. This type of sedation is very safe and effective and leaves you in dream like state. Conscious sedation is not a replacement to a general anaesthetic and you will be able to understand and respond to requests from the dentist. We offer this service to patients 18 – 60, and only to those who are medically fit.

Day of procedure

You are allowed to eat a light meal up to two hours before the procedure. If you don’t feel like eating, don’t worry, we will give you a glucose drink prior to treatment.

You are must have a responsible adult with you at your appointment time and they are required to remain on the premises.

How is it done?

The drugs that we use, which are mild sedatives to induce a calm, relaxed dream like state, are administered in to a vein in the back of your hand.

During your procedure, we will monitor your oxygen levels and blood pressure. Once you are sedated, you will be given a local anaesthetic in to the area being treated in the mouth.

After the procedure

You may not remember details of the treatment that took place as the sedation drugs used cause amnesia.

You will spend a short time following treatment at the practice to allow the effects of the drugs to wear off.

Your accompanying adult will then take you back home and must remain with you for 24hours.
