Our Pain-Free Sedation Dentistry Options
Intravenous (IV) Sedation
Intravenous (IV) sedation involves giving you an injection of a sedative drug into a vein in your arm or hand, fed by a plastic tube.
This is to leave you feeling relaxed and sleepy for dental treatments that you may not wish to be fully aware of while they happen.
Intravenous (IV) sedation is not just for nervous patients, it can also be used for procedures which are uncomfortable such as a tooth extraction or fillings.
As with any medical procedure, there are risks involved with intravenous (IV) sedation. These will be explained to you during your initial consultation with one of our dentists.
You will not be able to drive yourself home after intravenous (IV) sedation so please ensure you have someone to help you get home after treatment.
Nitrous Inhalation Sedation
Nitrous inhalation sedation, otherwise known as laughing gas is an old favourite of dentists for many generations, and for good reasons.
The main reason nitrous has been used for so long is because of how safe it is, in fact, nitrous inhalation sedation is the preferred method for when children require sedation.
The reason it is considered to be so safe is due to its short-term effects that produce a sedative effect from the pleasurable feelings it emits.
It’s a good idea to only have a light meal before you have nitrous inhalation sedation and avoid eating for 3 hours after treatment.
Although you will not be able to drive immediately after nitrous inhalation sedation, you will recover a lot quicker than if you had intravenous (IV) sedation.
Caring for Nervous Patients
One thing we specialise in at DentoBeauty is our treatment of nervous patients.
We are often complimented on our ability to put nervous adults and children at ease when it comes time for dental treatment.
This comes from years of experience in understanding patient needs and worries.
We’ll tell you as much as you want to know as the treatment progresses. We can walk you through every step, or if you’d rather, we’ll just get it done and tell you when we’re finished. Just tell us what makes you comfortable.
If you have had anxiety issues at a dentists before, just let us know during the initial consultation and we’ll advise you of what options are available to you.
Most of all, don’t worry… You’re in safe hands at DentoBeauty.
