Sedation

If you are anxious and require dental treatment Framwellgate Dental surgery can offer dental sedation as part of your treatment plan. Dental sedation enables your dental treatment to be carried out in an environment that’s free from stress and anxiety.


Sedation for our adult patients is given by the injection of an anti-anxiety drug in the back of your hand, this is known as intravenous sedation. The dose will depend on the amount of treatment you require and the length of time it will take to complete. The effects make you feel drowsy and unaware of any treatment, but you are still able to co-operate with your dentist.


Intravenous dental sedation is available at Framwellgate Dental Surgery as private treatment at a cost £100 per session plus treatment.


Wendy Guile has over 20 years’ experience in providing Intravenous Midazolam Sedation and holds the Postgraduate Diploma in Conscious Sedation in Dentistry from Newcastle University. She has previously been involved in delivering NHS Tier 1 Sedation Services.
