Conscious sedation makes you relax and allays anxiety during your procedure. You will be sufficiently awake to be able to converse with your dentist but you will usually have little, if any, recollection of events afterwards.
Sedative drugs are given as an injection in your hand or arm. The sedation technique used for your treatment needs to be administered by an anaesthetist. An anaesthetist is a medically qualified doctor who undertakes extensive postgraduate training in the field of anaesthetics and sedation. All our anaesthetists are Consultants with years of experience.

I had treatment at the Edgbaston Smile Clinic to fix two front teeth that were damaged due to grinding. The veneers I had fitted are brilliant - they look so natural. I'm really pleased with the result and the quality of care and attention provided. I also followed Shobhna's advice that 'building up' some worn down molars would avoid further damage from night time grinding. This preventative treatment has worked really well - I'm delighted.
Dentist Dr Shobhna Chauhan was excellent , professional in her approach and very measured and calm exactly what is needed when visiting the dentist. Her assistant was polite and excellent at not only managing appointments during difficult pandemic times, but assisting during my treatment.
I saw Dr Shobhna Chauhan regarding my teeth and had a wonderful experience. I had a free virtual consultation to discuss my options then I was booked in the week after to see the Doctor. I had a number of treaments over the next few weeks including some composite bonding and teeth whitening. Very happy with the results and Shobhna was lovely.
I first visited Edgbaston Smile in November 2020 for an Air Polish treatment and Teeth Whitening kit. I chose to have a consultation with Dr. Shobna Chauhan and I'm glad I picked her - the best dentist! Danni, her assistant, is also lovely. My teeth are still looking fresh & clean a year later, and I often get compliments about how nice & white my smile is.
Firstly I would like to thank Edgbaston smile clinic for the best patient care I have received. Having had previous orthodontic work and various dentist appointments in a different clinic, coming to Edgbaston smile clinic was a welcomed change, immediately there were issues with my teeth that had not been picked up for years by various dentists, Dr Shobhna picked up on them straight away.
The staff were very friendly and polite. It was probably the best customer service I have ever received. I got the air polish and it was quick and painless. Big shoutout to Dr Shobhna Chauhan and her assistant. Some lovely people for real.
Amazing staff. Reassuring at every moment. Professional and friendly. I now have an amazing smile after orthodontic work, teeth whitening and bonding to fix chipped and uneven tooth. My sis in law will be booking with you soon. very impressed x
I had composite bonding and whitening with Shobhna , the service was faultless and painless! I was involved in all discussions and had time to think without feeling pressurised. I love my new smile and had many compliments. Already even recommended her services to a colleague and wouldn't hesitate to recommended our use again.
I saw Dr Chauhan regarding teeth whitening, after examining my teeth, she said I was the perfect candidate for the bleaching treatment. I chose the ‘Night Time’ treatment, which meant I could whiten my teeth while sleeping. The treatment took around 2 weeks to complete and my teeth are SO white! I love them!
