          • Today I had my first appointment to see what work I needed doing and form a treatment plan, I'm an extremely nervous patient but I have to say this is a 5 star dentist with a 5 star service. The dentist I saw was brilliant! He was very clam and explained everything to me, I wasn't rushed and I left... read more

          • This is the preferred practice for both myself and my staff, the team at Rock House all have one thing in common, time for you.

          • This practice has a very professional and relaxed feel about it. The treatment is carefully planned and executed. Overall very happy with the service provided. Would definitely recommend to others.

          • Excellent first visit to the Rock Dental Practice. All the staff are friendly and professional. Particularly liked the 'real time' discussion about the Xray results - shown on a screen in the surgery a few minutes after they were taken. Can't get much better than that for patient care.

            Martin Crossley 2/01/2019
          • Another excellent experience. Dr Nandra, Dawn and the team are always friendly and professional and make a potentially nerve wracking experience, for the anxious-patient like me, relaxed and (almost!) enjoyable. I can't recommend Rock House highly enough. Thanks again for your care and kindness guys.

          • Excellent. Needed emergency treatment after breaking a tooth/filling. Could not get in at NHS emergency surgeries.
            Staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. A very good service, though it comes at a price.

          • My dentist merged with the Rock practice a short while ago, and then moved on, so I had only had an initial inspection with the new dentist but found them most welcoming.
            On Saturday I lost a Crown from my front tooth and as I had important presentations on Tuesday I was a little concerned.
            I rang on Sunday morning to leave...

          • Went to This dentist today for an emergency appointment. Exceptional from receptionist to dentist. There’s no one more nervous about visiting the dentist than me and they made me feel completely at ease. Had to have the tooth extracted but my dentist Kiran made sure it was completely painless. Can’t thank you enough x

          • I had a wisdom tooth extracted at Rock House Dental Practice and am very happy with the service. Dr. Nandra was brilliant, it was all done in just a few minutes and I didn't feel a thing.

            Thank you to Dr Nadra and the team.

          • I was very happy with all aspects of my visit to Rock House. From the very welcoming staff, to the excellent professionalism of the team who undertook my treatment. The practice itself was very clean and well maintained, and I would definitely recommend it to others! Thanks to everyone at Rock House for making me so comfortable!

            Rajan Chaudhry 8/09/2018
          • Great practice with very professional staff. Dr Nandra and his team always put my family at ease about trips to the dentist and even my 2 under 5 now enjoy their visits which is a result given they wouldn’t even go into the room on their first trip! Could not recommend the practice enough.

      I am most fortunate to have Rock Dental Practice as my surgery, since the first day I walked into their practice over three years ago, I have received nothing less than a very warm and courteous reception from all staff. I have required some dental work which was crucial, the time, care and the level of work done was Ace... read more

Dental Sedation

Dental Sedation - The lighter way to experience dentistry

At Rock House Dental Practice, we provide dental sedation to help you undergo dental treatment.

When people have anxiety about pain or about the dentist in general, they often opt for what is sometimes called sleep dentistry. The different styles of dental sedation are what make sleep dentistry possible, although not all sedation dentistry involves actual sleep!

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation is a method of completely relaxing your mind and body, allowing dental treatment to take place with minimal disturbance and discomfort. Many nervous patients find that sedation enables them to endure lengthy procedures, feeling as though the time passed in just a few minutes.

Sedation dentistry is when a relaxant drug forms part of the dental treatment. Administered by injection, either in the back of your hand or in your arm, the drug will make you feel less anxious. The dose will depend on the amount of treatment needed and the length of time it will take to complete.

The sedatives themselves are substances, legal and approved for use in dentistry. Most patients describe the effects as if you are in a trance-like state of relaxation.

You become drowsy and unaware of any treatment, but you are still able to co-operate with the dentist. Because you remain conscious during dental sedation, you can understand and respond to requests from your dentist. However, you may not remember much about the dental treatment.

Patients tell us that dental sedation is a wonderful feeling. They feel rested and peaceful. They are able to keep their anxiety under control and often experience a light floating feeling. The effects of dental sedation take some time to wear off after the appointment. The amount of time is dependant on the patient and the dose. You won’t be able to drink alcohol, drive or work machines during this time. You may be required to have someone accompany you after sedation.

Sleep Dentistry

You will not be asleep during the procedure. It is now almost impossible to find a dentist that puts you to sleep. “Sleep” only occurs with general anaesthesia, and this is not provided in a UK dental practice. NHS dental sedation clinics used to offer this service previously, but the law changed in the 1990's.

Dental sedation induces a state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on. The drugs used in sedation dentistry produce either partial or full memory loss. As a result, time will appear to pass very quickly and you will not recall much of what happened. Many patients remember nothing at all. So it may, indeed, appear as if you were “asleep” during the procedure. You are never left alone in the dental surgery and all team members will always have a chaperone.

How safe is Dental Sedation?

Sedation dentistry is very safe when carried out by trained dentists.

However, some people are not suitable for dental sedation.

  • Pregnant patients
  • Children
  • Patients with an allergy to sedative drugs
  • Alcohol intoxication
  • Some instances of glaucoma

And there’s no need to worry – we’ll monitor your blood pressure, pulse, and oxygen levels in the blood, and heart whilst you’re under sedation.

Advantages of Dental Sedation

Sedation dentistry is best for patients that don't want to be aware of the procedure. The onset of action is very rapid, and drug dosage and level of sedation meet the individual’s needs. Dental sedation is very useful in patients that gag excessively. The gag reflex reduces allowing the treatment to become easier.
