IV sedation

Studies have shown that the main reasons people do not attend the dentist is fear!

Intravenous sedation is a way to ensure you are in a relaxed state for treatment. It is a very safe procedure that uses a sedative drug to reduce your anxiety and your nervousness will subside. You remain conscious during the sedation and are able to understand and respond to your dentist. After the treatment is complete you may not remember much of the procedure but you will feel fit and well.

At Newton Dental Practice our sedation is carried out by our specialist consultant anaesthetist Dr Giju George, whom has years of experience both in general hospital and in dental hospitals and is a council member of the Association of Dental Anaesthetist.
