Sedation Dentistry at Yorkshire Dental Suite, leeds
It’s only natural to have bad memories of a painful experience at the dentist. We understand this and we want to help you overcome your phobia and have treatment in the most pleasurable way possible.
With IV sedation, we’ll help you relax during your dental procedure, so you’re still awake but not aware of what’s happening and with much less dental anxiety.
This allows our experienced dentist to carry out your treatment without you feeling too stressed in the chair. Plus you won’t remember the treatment after you’ve had it done!

Your questions answered
You’ve probably got tonnes of questions. But before you get in touch, we’ve answered the most common ones below.
- No memory of undergoing the treatment
- No sense of time while under sedation
- No sense of smell or sound
- No fear or anxiety during treatment
IV sedation is when the drug (midazolam) is administered through a vein so it goes to work very quickly.
This method of sedation allows the dentist to continually adjust the level of sedation. Whilst you are sedated you are in a semi-awake state and will likely have little to no memory following treatment.
You won’t be fully asleep during sedation however you will be extremely relaxed and not aware of what is happening. The only way to be fully asleep during treatment is via general anaesthetic which is only available in a hospital setting.
Most of our clients feel no discomfort during their dental treatment and feel surprisingly good afterwards.
Following treatment, you will be fine. For your safety we do require you to bring someone with you to drive you hope and look after you for the rest of the day.
