Sedation

All treatments available in every 'Instore Dental' practice.

Q: What is sedation and why do some people ask to be sedated for their dental treatment?

A: Our dentists are very pleasant and approachable, but for some, a natural fear or phobia of the dentist and dental treatment can turn their visit into a nerve wracking experience. You may decide that you need dental sedation to keep you relaxed for your dental treatment.

Q: In which of your practices is sedation available?

A: Sedation is available for patients who feel it would be helpful to them at every one of our Instore Dental practices - in Slough, Merton, Denton, Sale, Heaton Park, and Bolton.

Q: Which medicines do you use to sedate your patients?

A: At Instore Dental, we use a sedation medicine called Midazolam, which is administered via a gentle injection in the back of your hand or in your arm. The dose will depend on the patient's individual need. You will become drowsy and unaware of treatment, and will not remember having undergone the treatment after it has taken place.

Q: Is sedation available for everyone?

A: Before we can offer you sedation, we need to carry out a free-of-charge consultation to see if you are suitable for sedation, as there are some health issues which may contradict its use. We will need a full list of any medicines you are taking, so please make sure you take a note of these before visiting us.

Q: How will I know how much sedation treatment will cost me?

A: From the consultation, we can discuss with you fully your treatment plan and costs, before you commit to any treatment. You will be given a written estimate to take away with you.

Q: If I am due to be sedated, should I bring somebody to my appointment with me?

A: We would advise that you are accompanied to your sedation treatment appointment as you will not be able to drive for a short period afterwards. It is highly advisable to make sure that if you are working, you take the rest of the day off as you will feel sleepy until the medicines starts to wear off.
