Sleep Dentistry

The treatment you need without the pain

Many people are apprehensive about dental procedure and often postpone much needed treatment. IV sedation (sometimes referred to as Sleep Dentistry), is a pain-free way for patients to receive the dental care they need with the benefit of sedation.

It is ideal for patients who suffer from anxiety, in relation to dental treatments or people who wish to complete several or lengthy procedures in a single appointment.

Unlike a general anaesthetic, with IV Sedation you remain conscious, aware of your surroundings and able to follow instructions from the dentist all while in a deeply relaxed state.

Conducted under strict guidelines, your breathing and pulse is closely monitored throughout your procedure by a qualified and highly experienced is IV Sedation specialist. We will explain the procedure in detail and answer your questions before proceeding.

It is advised you not eat or drink for at least six hours prior your appointment. Following your procedure you will have little to no memory of the noises, smells, tastes, injections or drilling.

The effects of IV Sedation can take several hours to subside, therefore you will need to have someone drive you home. You should also allow yourself 24 hours to rest and recover fully.

If you’re apprehensive about certain aspects of your dental treatment, we encourage you to call and schedule a consultation appointment to discuss how IV Sedation could help you receive the care you need for the smile you want.The treatment you need without the pain
