Sedation dentistry is a specialised field of dental care that uses various medications to help patients relax and remain calm during dental treatments. It is an excellent option for those with dental phobias, anxiety, or complex procedures that require extended chair time.
We understand that dental anxiety and fear can be real barriers to seeking the dental care you need for optimal oral health.
That’s why we offer sedation dentistry, a safe and effective way to help patients relax and feel at ease during their dental procedures. Our professional team of dentists is dedicated to ensuring your comfort and well-being throughout your visit.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
- Anxiety and Fear Management: Sedation helps alleviate dental anxiety and fear, making it easier for patients to receive necessary treatment.
- Pain and Discomfort Reduction: It can minimise discomfort and pain, ensuring a more comfortable experience.
- Time Efficiency: Sedation can allow for longer, more complex procedures to be completed in a single visit.
- Minimised Gag Reflex: Sedation helps reduce the gag reflex, making it more comfortable for patients during certain procedures.
Types of Sedation
We offer various levels of sedation to cater to the unique needs of our patients, including:
- Oral Sedation: Patients take a prescribed sedative in the form of a pill or liquid before their appointment. This is suitable for those with moderate anxiety or for longer procedures.
- Intravenous (IV) Sedation: Administered through an IV line, this type of sedation is often used for more complex treatments or for patients with severe dental anxiety.
The Sedation Process
The process of receiving sedation dentistry typically involves the following steps:
- Consultation: Your dentist will discuss your dental concerns and level of anxiety to determine the most suitable sedation option for you.
- Preparation: Depending on the type of sedation, you may receive specific instructions on fasting and medications.
- Administration: Sedation is safely administered by a trained dental professional.
- Treatment: Your dental procedure is carried out while you remain relaxed and comfortable.
- Recovery: After the procedure, you may need some time to fully recover from the effects of sedation.
