    Explanation

    I am terrified about anything teeth related. I had a consultation at Royal South Hants for a wisdom tooth removal, where it was agreed that I’d have an IV Sedation. I was sent to Solent House to have the removal but there was miscommunication along the line as IV Sedation wasn’t possible on the day I was booked in. I didn’t want to wait any longer, so after a few tears we went ahead with the removal with local anaesthetic. Mr Kusanale and his team were beyond fantastic, they were very clear with what to expect, they dealt with my emotional state so kindly and were very supportive. They removal went well, and on reflection I am glad the IV sedation was not available! Thank you so much to Mr Kusanale and your amazing team.
