Conscious Sedation

We have created a relaxing and calm patient-led environment at Vermilion and we do everything we can to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

However, we do recognise that many patients are nervous and even phobic about going to the Dentist and our two oral surgeons offer conscious sedation. Our dental nurses are also sedation trained.

In addition, we offer an anaesthetist-led conscious sedation service whereby patients are sedated by Dr Ross Paterson, a Consultant in Critical Care at the Western General Hospital, Edinburgh.

For patients considering All-on-4 implant surgery, we recommend that the surgical phase of treatment is carried out under conscious sedation.

Patients who are sedated for treatment must be accompanied home by an escort.
