Stress-Free Dentistry

Perfect For Nervous Patients

Modern London Dental Practice

Providing Zzzs, ease, and dental expertise

At Dickens Yard Dental, we believe that dental procedures should be as painless as possible, both physically and mentally! We understand that major dental procedures like tooth extractions or root canals can be daunting, and that’s why we offer dental sedation services to help you snooze, relax, and get through your treatment without all the stress.

Why choose to snooze with dental sedation?

Let’s face it – going to the dentist isn’t exactly everyone’s favourite pastime. But here at Dickens Yard Dental, we’ve got your back! Our dental sedation services are designed to help you feel more comfortable and at ease during major dental procedures. Say goodbye to dental anxiety and hello to a worry-free experience.

Leave your worries behind with IV dental sedation

At Dickens Yard Dental, we’ve got the perfect remedy for those pre-procedure jitters – our super chill IV sedation! Our team of experts will ensure that you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure, while still retaining your vital reflexes, like the ability to cough. We use a single sedative called midazolam, which is a member of the benzodiazepine group of drugs and is the go-to choice for IV sedation in oral surgery procedures in the UK. So, rest assured, you’re in good hands.

Hear from lovely patients who are helping us prove that we’re nervous-patient-proof

They are really great. As my little ones is scared to have a visit to the dentist, they are so patient and thinking very details about him. And of course they are all really nice, considerate and professional to us, you can feel how good they are from the receptionist, the dentist, hygienist and all other staff.

From the moment you walk into Dickens Yard Dental, you know this is not just a run of the mill private dentist. From the welcoming smile of Dipti to the myriad of plants you’re surrounded by, the aura is warm and you instantly feel calm. My new patient appointment was with Dan and you can tell he’s very knowledgeable, especially with tooth extractions. He’s also ultra friendly and always makes sure you’re OK and comfortable.

Highly recommend!

Daniel has since taken a keen interest in the surgical aspects of Dentistry which has recently culminated in a Master’s degree in clinical Oral surgery.

This means that Daniel has the skills and experience to tackle complex extractions in a predictable and comfortable manner.

Daniel is also trained in providing sedation to nervous patients, which is a service we hope to provide our patients in the near future.

Have questions? We thought you might!

Dental sedation may be suitable for you if you have:

  • A strong fear of the dentist
  • A history of difficult dental procedures
  • Unpleasant childhood memories of dentistry
  • Difficulty feeling the effects of local anaesthesia
  • A strong gag reflex
  • Very sensitive teeth
  • Complex dental problems
  • Limited time to attend multiple visits
  • A strong dislike of the noises, smells or tastes experienced at the dentist
  • A phobia or embarrassment about your teeth

Remember, our team at Dickens Yard Dental is experienced in providing safe and effective dental sedation services. We’ll work with you to determine if dental sedation is the right option for your unique needs and concerns.

Don’t let fear or anxiety hold you back from achieving optimal oral health – let us help you conquer your dental worries with our sedation dentistry options!

Scheduling a dental sedation appointment at Dickens Yard Dental is as easy as catching z’s! Simply give us a call or book online, and our friendly team will be happy to assist you in booking your appointment. We’ll guide you through the process, answer any questions you have, and ensure that your sedation experience is seamless from start to finish.

We understand that dental sedation may not be the right fit for everyone. That’s why we offer other options for managing dental anxiety, such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), relaxation techniques, and communication strategies to help you feel more comfortable during your dental visit. Our team will work with you to find the best approach that suits your needs and preferences.
Dental sedation can be a great option for children who experience dental anxiety or have difficulty sitting still during dental procedures. However, the suitability of dental sedation for children depends on their age, overall health, and the specific procedure. Our experienced team at Dickens Yard Dental will carefully evaluate your child’s needs and provide the best recommendations for their comfort and safety.
Our dental dream team at Dickens Yard Dental is highly experienced and trained in providing safe and effective dental sedation. Our dentists have undergone specialised training and possess the expertise to ensure your comfort and safety during your sedation experience. Rest assured, you’re in capable hands with our skilled and caring team.
Unfortunately, dental sedation may not always be covered by insurance. Coverage depends on your individual insurance plan and the specific sedation technique used. However, at Dickens Yard Dental, we strive to make dental care affordable and offer various financing options for our patients. Our friendly team will be happy to discuss payment options and help you find the best solution for your budget.
As much as we would love to have you cruise on home with a new set of pearly whites, it’s not safe to drive yourself after dental sedation. The sedation can leave you feeling groggy and impair your coordination, making it unsafe to operate a vehicle. Be sure to arrange for a responsible friend or family member to drive you home after your sedation appointment. Safety first, folks!
The duration of dental sedation can vary depending on your specific needs and the complexity of the dental procedure. But worry not, our expert team at Dickens Yard Dental will carefully customise the sedation plan just for you, ensuring your comfort and safety at all times. You’ll be in good hands, and we’ll make sure you have a smooth and stress-free experience!
Not necessarily! The level of sedation can vary depending on the type of sedation used. With mild to moderate sedation, you’ll be in a relaxed and drowsy state, but still able to communicate with our dental team. With deeper sedation, you may drift in and out of consciousness, but fear not, our experienced team will be closely monitoring you at all times. We’ll ensure that you’re comfortable, relaxed, and well taken care of throughout the entire treatment. Your safety is our top priority, so you can trust us to provide you with the best care possible!
Yes you do, choose a lucky mate, family member, or loved one to accompany you for your procedure and get you home safely.
