Dental sedation is a safe and effective technique that helps patients be completely relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments.

Who is sedation dentistry for?

You may be a good candidate for dental sedation in Glasgow if you experience any of the following:

  • Dental fears
  • Had a previous bad dental experience
  • Can’t sit still
  • Dislike needles and injections
  • Have a bad gag reflex
  • Have sensitive teeth
  • Have problems getting numb
  • Need a lot of work performed
  • Dislike the sounds, sights, and smells of the dental practice

You do not need to be registered with Shawlands Dental Care to receive treatment under conscious sedation in Glasgow. If your dentist does not offer sedation dentistry, please request a referral to our practice for treatment. Dental sedation is available privately and on the NHS.

What is IV sedation?

An IV administers the sedation medication, midazolam into the back of your hand. IV sedation is ideal for patients who experience dental anxiety and want little to no memory of the dental treatment.

You’ll be sedated just enough to be unaware of the treatment. When it is over, you’ll feel as though you were sleeping.

It can take at least 24 hours for the effects of sedation to wear off, so patients must arrange for a companion to meet them at our practice and take them home. You may still feel a little drowsy, so it is best to take it easy for the rest of the day.

Is IV sedation safe?

IV Sedation is very safe, and we monitor your vital signs throughout the appointment. Our team is trained to care for sedated patients to ensure their comfort and safety. Following treatment, patients are placed in a recovery room and given time to rest before being discharged to their chaperon.

Call us on 0141 632 1378 to find out if sedation in Glasgow might be a good fit for you.

Had my tooth implant over 3 years ago here. Never had any issues with it. It’s not a visible tooth (far right at the very back) so not a big issue for cosmetic reasons but I eat more on that…
