Conscious sedation is a way of making anxious people feel more relaxed about receiving dental care.

It involves giving you a sedative medicine through a vein in your arm or hand. The sedative makes you feel deeply relaxed. You will be able to talk and cooperate with your dental team, but most people cannot remember much about their treatment.

Londent is proud to offer dental treatment under Conscious Sedation. Our qualified sedation dentist, Dr Sian Li, works with even the most phobic patients to treat their dental needs in an efficient and calming environment.



Who is Conscious Sedation suitable for?

Conscious Sedation can help patients who have:
• Dental anxieties and phobias
• Needle phobias
• Hypersensitive gag reflexes
• And those who may require prolonged or intensive treatments

Which treatments can I be sedated for?

Every situation is different, and your Sedationist will discuss with you whether Conscious Sedation is appropriate for your circumstances.

Procedures can include;

• Restorative treatments like fillings
• Root canal and extirpations
• Bridges, crowns and veneers
• Extractions (may include oral surgeon input)

Which type of Conscious Sedation do you offer?

We offer Intravenous (IV) Sedation at Londent.

Is IV Sedation safe?

As with any medical intervention, there are potential risks. However, Conscious Sedation has been used in dentistry for many years and as such, robust and clearly defined operating protocols are in place to reduce risks to a minimum.

In addition, a detailed consultation is carried out prior to any treatment to further identify and mitigate potential risks. During this consultation, any questions and concerns you may have can be addressed and discussed.

Will I be awake during Sedation?

Once sedated, you will be awake, however, you will be in an extremely relaxed and calm state. You will be relieved of all feelings of nervousness and anxiety.

How much does Conscious Sedation cost?

Conscious sedation costs start from £300. A full estimate will be provided, taking into account the length of the sedation and the treatments you are being sedated for.

This is an excellent dental practice that I've been recommending to my coworkers for awhile. The staff is friendly and professional. The sisters who run the practice are thorough not just with the examinations and cleaning, but also make sure to give me personalized and practical advice for at-home care.

I enquired about a chipped tooth issue and was seen within 24 hours of making the enquiry. Treatment options were clearly explained and discussed, in what is a very professional setting just off Shad Thames.

After years of not going to the dentist, I was dreading my visit. Very welcoming practice. Dr Li kept me informed of my treatment plan and explained clearly what was needed and why. Very reassuring and professional. I've never had to wait for my appointments as well, which is very appreciated on a tight schedule.

I visited Londent and had an initial consultation with Dr Panayiotis Kaimakamis (Periodontist). What an absolute dream he was from start to finish. I was quite anxious regarding some rather complex periodontal surgery I needed ASAP and his customer care, subject matter expertise and surgical skills in my humble opinion remain unmatched. I recommend both this clinic and Dr Pano...
