Oral Surgery / IV Sedation Referrals (NHS)
We are pleased to announce that Glumangate Dental Practice has been awarded a contract for delivery of Intermediate Minor Oral Surgery for the NHS, including IV sedation, from 1st April 2017.
This includes the following services;
- Removal of third molars in line with NICE guidelines.
- Surgical extractions.
- Failed extractions.
- Surgical exposure of buried canines for orthodontics.
The above treatment can be provided to adult patients (17 years of age and above, as per the terms of the IMOS contract).
Online Referral System (Rego)
As per the terms of the NHS IMOS contract, we are only able to accept referrals through the online referral system Rego. We can accept referrals from NHS and private dental practices within Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
If you wish to refer a patient and do not have Rego at your practice, please contact Vantage help desk on 0207 993 5870.
The terms of the IMOS contract indicate that all IV sedation referrals must be accompanied by an Indicator of Sedation Need (IOSN) form. This must be completed by the patient and referring GDP.
Patients assessed as grades ASA I or ASA II using the American Society of Anaesthesiologists physical status classification system will be accepted unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Please use Rego to refer a patient for IV sedation. For the question; "has the extraction been attempted", please answer "no due to patient anxiety". This will open up a question to ask if the patient requests conscious sedation. Please answer yes and then complete the IOSN questionnaire as per the IOSN form.

Cone Beam CT Scanner
We are in a unique position to be able to offer CBCT scans to patients referred for the IMOS service (free of charge).
Where appropriate, scans will be taken to allow the oral surgeon to visualise important anatomy, such as the exact position of the ID nerve in relation to impacted third molars. You can therefore have reassurance that your patients would have the benefit of reducing the risks to their treatment as much as possible with the aid of this technology.
