Our aim here at Savay Dental is to provide you with excellent treatment in a relaxing, calm setting. We understand that you might feel anxious about dental appointments and we’re qualified to use sedation to ensure your visit is comfortable and stress-free.
Sedation at Savay Dental
We provide intravenous sedation to anxious patients and those suffering with dental phobia. During treatment with IV sedation, we will monitor your blood pressure and heart rate whilst administering the sedative agent. You’ll begin to feel drowsy and relaxed as the sedative starts to take effect.
Although you won’t be able to feel anything during the procedure, you will still be conscious and in control, so you’ll be able to communicate with us if you want to.
We recommend coming with a friend or relative on the day of your treatment so they can drive you home safely. It is advisable not to drive, operate machinery or drink alcohol for at least 24 hours following your treatment.
Advantages of sedation
The benefits of sedation at Savay Dental include:
- Treatment is carried out in a safe and comfortable environment
- You will feel completely at ease throughout your dental procedure
- You’ll barely remember your treatment procedure afterwards
Sedation can also be used if you have a sensitive gag reflex, as it allows the throat to relax during procedures.
I have been a dental patient of Sachin Patel for many years. I am a very nervous patient and Sachin is always gentle and takes time to explain the procedures before he starts any treatment.
I was a very nervous patient who hadn’t been near a dentist in over thirty years. What a find! He instantly put me at ease and explained fully the treatment that I would require.
Barbara (a very satisfied patient)
We cannot speak too highly of his abilities as a first class and ‘up to date’ dental surgeon. He has enormous skill and ability and combines these qualities with a lightness of touch, ‘soft hands’ and a caring manner.

The whole experience from start to finish was positive, and knowing I could call you with any concerns was very reassuring, and with yourself and vangellis talking me through every step and stage of my treatment made it a good experience for me.
