Clients often get confused when they hear the word sedation as it suggests being completely asleep however that is only possible with general anaesthetic which can only be carried out in hospitals however in reality you actually remain partially conscious during sedation.
To cut a long story short, I made the appointment and went through with it scared but trying to think positive I lay back on the couch, was given a tiny injection in my arm, never feeling a thing and the next thing I can remember was getting out of the car with my partner back at home, having had 2 fillings, an extraction and a general clean and polish! Everything that I was told was totally true, the staff were so kind and the process was completely painless and I could not remember a thing! I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Faresh, Jasmine and Vicky for your excellent service and customer care and would recommend you to anyone without hesitation and, for all you nervous patients out there if I can do it so can you and you won’t remember a thing.

The use of sedation in dentistry is a fantastic method of reducing anxiety levels and it will ensure a positive experience at the dentist.
You will be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist however you may not remember much about what went on because of two main factors : firstly, in most people, sedation induces a state of deep relation and a feeling of not being bothered about what is going on. Secondly the medication can produce either partial or complete memory loss for a short period of time. As a result times seems to pass very quickly and you will not recall much or perhaps nothing at all of what happened. So it may appear as if you were asleep throughout the whole procedure.
I can’t thank Dr Bajwa enough and also his kind, considerate dental nurses, they were so friendly and competent; and as for Vicky and the other receptionists, they are angels! Thank you all, my fears have been conquered, I feel very proud of myself- but of course it’s all thanks to you. I won’t be worried at all about my next visit. Thank you so much,J.W.
