Many patients find conscious sedation a great way to undertake their dental treatment as it helps them to feel calm and relaxed.
Here at Southside Dental Care we offer intravenous sedation, so you will be awake throughout your treatment but will feel completely peaceful and at ease. Our sedation practitioner Dr Leanne Branton, has a very gentle and reassuring manner - our aim is to make you feel as comfortable as possible throughout your appointment.
The effects of the sedation mean that after your appointment you may feel groggy for a while, this means you need to have an escort with you for your sedation appointment who can remain with you for the rest of the day. Recovery is generally quick, and after 24 hours you will be free to go about your daily activities as normal. This is a fantastic alternative to having a general anesthetic, where there are higher risks and often longer recovery times.
If you are considering conscious sedation, please call our reception team on 0131 667 5656 to book a free consultation appointment with Leanne to discuss things further and ensure you are suitable for sedation with us.
Our hope is that we eventually make you feel confident, and dare we say it, happy about coming to visit us!
