Dental Sedation Bromley

Are you among the ones who feel nervous about performing any dental treatment? Do you hate the thought of seeing a dentist? If yes, then you are not alone. Most people are anxious to visit a dentist for their routine check-up. Smile 4 U won’t dismiss the anxieties you feel and look for suitable ways to deal with them in the best possible way. We provide sedation options from tablets for mild anxiety to intravenous (IV) sedation.

IV Sedation / Nervous Patients

With IV sedation, you will be fully relaxed during the treatment. You will also be monitored constantly to ensure you are medically fit. At Smile 4 U, our in-house anaesthetist will sedate patients within the safest guidelines and the dental practice has all the facilities to deal with emergency.

What is IV Sedation?

IV sedation is when a sedative drug is given into a vein. If you are nervous about having dental treatment or you are having a procedure which may be more complex, intravenous (IV) sedation is an effective and safe treatment.

Benefits of Sedation

While under IV sedation, you will feel relaxed but you will still be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist.

You may be unaware of the operation and this is ideal for patients who wish to avoid the noise of the drill.

How it works?

IV sedation has four main effects

  • It will reduce your anxiety and make you feel relaxed
  • It will make you feel sleepy
  • It will make you less aware of the procedure
  • It will result in partial – or total loss of memory of the procedure.

IV sedation is safe when it is supervised or carried out by an appropriately trained doctor or dentist.

Why do I need IV Sedation?

It is an ideal way of helping you to relax if you are nervous about the treatment.

What are the alternatives?

  • Local anaesthetic alone
  • General anaesthetic which would require a hospital referral

How much does it cost?

We charge on a 30 minutes block basis. For every 30 minutes started we would charge £150.


  • Take your routine medicines at the usual times, unless advised otherwise.
  • Do not eat any food 6 hours prior to the procedure. You can drink water for up to 2 hours prior to the procedure.
  • Do not take alcohol or recreational drugs including cannabis, 48 hours before your treatment. 

  • Bring a responsible adult with you. This escort must be over the age of 18 and personally known to you. They must be able to escort you home and care for you for the rest of the day. 

  • Sedation is not possible if you are pregnant, so be sure to tell us. 

  • Nursing mothers cannot breastfeed for 12 hours after sedation.
