Nervous Patients

Let us help you receive dental treatment in a pleasant and relaxed environment here at Banstead Dental Care. You can call us on 01737-350068, or email [email protected].

Dental Sedation

For patients who are extremely nervous or phobic of dental treatment we offer IV sedation to help relax them during treatment. We use a combination of sedative and pain-relieving drugs to create a more relaxed environment before the dental procedure commences.

Dental sedation is carried out intravenously (IV) using a drug called Midazolam which is injected directly into the bloodstream via a cannula, placed in the bend of your arm or on the back of the hand. During IV sedation, you are not unconscious but in a dream-like state of deep calm relaxation. The sedation lasts between 1-2 hours and when you wake you will have no memory of the treatment and you will be fully recovered the following day. IV sedation is a safe, effective and less costly alternative to general anaesthetic.

After IV sedation treatment you will not be able to return to work or drive that day. For treatment to commence an escort must be present, they must take you home after treatment and be with you at all times for the 12 hours following treatment.

Who is suitable?

Anyone who is fit and healthy can have sedation, however sedation is particularly helpful for patients with a strong fear or phobia of the dentistry, patients who have had a traumatic or negative experience in the past, patients with a strong gag reflex or patients with long and complicated treatment procedures, such as dental implants.

Who carries out the sedation?

Our qualified sedationist colleagues at ‘Sedation Solutions’ carry out the dental sedation. We are delighted to have the services of Dr Jusof Omar, who is highly regarded in the UK and worldwide for his dental sedation experience.

Desperate with tooth ache during the COVID-19 Pandemic with no ressponse from my regular dentist, I visited this surgery. From the beginning, a 5 star service. Required a Root Canal Treatment which Jonathan Lee did, he was excellent as I was very nervous. It was a fabulous result which was finished by a superb fitting of a crown by Marc Clery. The level of communication, reassurance and kindness with excellent professionalism from the whole practice made me feel so reassured, I have moved to this practice! Thank you Marc & Rakhi.

Highly recommend this surgery if, like me, you are nervous or scared of visiting the dentist. They explain fully what will happen and never rush the treatment, being really patient and kind despite my anxiety. I now book up to go regularly, where before I avoided going until I had a problem because I know that I will be treated with respect and understanding over my fears, which makes the whole process bearable. It’s a very professional service too, where you get reminders about your appointments and friendly, helpful reception ladies. If you’re feeling anxious, just tell them because they really will look after you!

Fantastic communication and unrivalled care and attention from all of the staff at Banstead Dental Care. I have undergone numerous treatments in the past 6 months with Rakhi and feel completely at home. I no longer need to say "I hate the dentist"! 100% recommended.

My son's and I were patients at another private practice for 15 years until our circumstances changed. I was extremely nervous about the change but was recommended to this practice and took the plunge with both of my sons in tow, one of whom has regular check ups while his braces are in place and after care arranged for when they are removed.. Marcus has been brilliant. His manner is reassuring, informative and thorough. The dental nurses, reception staff and hygienists are all great. The payment plan is also a good idea. Highly recommended.
