Fear is a common feeling for those who put off going to the dentist.
normally born from a previous negative experience that you are reminded of each time the prospect of the dentist draws near. With oral surgery, Sedation Dentistry is a clear and present choice that can be made to eliminate fear forever.
Sedation Dentistry offers patients the ability to conquer their fear of going to the dentist. If you break into a cold sweat when someone mentions the word 'dentist', Sedation
Dentistry may be for you.
Many adults today put off seeing the dentist for years because of the fear they have. Sedation Dentistry offers the solution to patients
suffering from dental anxiety as it puts you in a state of relaxation and drowsiness that can effectively help you sleep during your treatment.
You may benefit from Sedation Dentistry if you:
- Dislike dental Injections
- Detest the noise of
dental equipment - drills, suction hoses etc
- Gag easily and hate the taste during dental procedures
- Have sensitive teeth
- Are sensitive to the prospect of pain
- If you need to undergo a complex dental procedure or a treatment that will consume a long period of time
Sedation Dentistry enables patients to become drowsy and generally sleep throughout their whole dental treatment. Sedation
Dentistry actually begins about an hour prior to your dental treatment. A sedative is administered to the patient and after a short time the patient will become very relaxed and enter a sleep-like state. During some dental treatments
anaesthetic is still administered to the patient.
Sedation Dentistry is a contemporary technique that is completely safe for patients. It also enables
patients who have a fear of the dentist to undergo dental treatment. Most patients, who have utilised Sedation Dentistry during a procedure, have no memory of their treatment.
Case Study- Kate
Do you need a wisdom tooth extracted?Sometimes
wisdom teeth can be a little tricky to remove. At Active Dental we have Dr Simon Briggs who specialises in extractions and Sedation Dentistry. If the
time comes when you need a wisdom tooth removed you can be assured you
will receive the very best of care during this procedure. The option of
IV Sedation helps our patients feel more relaxed, especially
when they know that they must have the extractions done due to
infection. It also allows them the option of having the procedure in
the dental surgery rather than having to go to hospital. On the day you will arrive with a friend or family member as you do need some assistance getting home after the procedure as you are still a little drowsy from the sedation.
If you’ve not visited us before and you are interested in feeling more relaxed at your next dental visit, we thoroughly recommend you contact us at Active Dental on 9891 5353 or email@example.com for a consultation to find out how we can help you.
