Sedation Dentistry

Excluding nitrous oxide, most forms of sedation dentistry will leave you drowsy and groggy for several hours after your procedure. For this reason, you will need someone to drive you to and from your appointment. We recommend that you do not return to work until the next day.

Most forms of dental sedation will leave you drowsy but conscious and able to voluntarily move and speak. Dental sedation will put you into a deeply relaxed state. You may find that time passes faster, and you may not even remember parts of the procedure when it is over, but you will be conscious the entire time.

For most adults with no serious health issues, sedation dentistry is perfectly safe. We will review your medical history to determine if sedation dentistry is an option. You will be closely monitored throughout your visit to ensure you are safe and comfortable during sedation.

Not finding what you need?
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Great news! We can now return to providing all our patients with their dentistry needs. We do however, still have strict precautions in place and ask if you have an appointment coming up and feel unwell or have any flu-like symptoms that you contact us on Ph 9740 3588 prior to reschedule. Thank you for your support during this time and we look forward to seeing you all.
