Are you someone who suffers from Dental anxiety? Does the mere mention of the dentist fill you with fear? If you are one of many people in the world who has put up with unnecessary pain in the past , conscious sedation dentistry could be your answer.

Confident Dental & Implant Clinic have many years of experience in providing  sedation to its patients if required because patients may be anxious, phobic, concerned about gagging or simply contemplating a greater level of relaxation to help with a long treatment session.

We accept sedation referrals from our dentist colleagues in the Stroud area, Gloucestershire and wider Cotswolds region for sedation services for their patients, aiming to return a delighted patient to their usual dentist after completion of any sedation treatment that is required. Please use this link to our Confident sedation combined referral form or contact reception on 01453 764287.

If you request sedation, during treatment, you will be awake and responsive but will remember very little and as a result, feel calm for the duration of the treatment.

• Are you scared, anxious, or phobic of dental treatment?
• Have you had a traumatic dental experience in the past?
• Do you find it difficult coping with dental treatment e.g. gag reflex/gagging?
• Are you putting off having extractions or implants/cosmetic dentistry ?If you have answered ‘yes’ to one or more of the above, conscious sedation could be the answer for you.
