Sedation

CAN YOU REALLY RELAX IN THE DENTIST’S CHAIR?

Sedation Dentistry Warrnambool

Sedation is used to provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for certain people who receive dental treatments. It enables those who are too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding dental phobia.

There are several levels of sedation:

Minimal sedation – patient is awake but calm.

Moderate sedation (formerly called “conscious sedation”) – patient may slur their words when speaking and not remember much of the procedure.

Deep sedation – patient is on the edge of consciousness but can still be awakened.

General anaesthesia – patient is completely unconscious.

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

There are four benefits of sedation. It includes:

#1. Overcome fear and anxiety

Warrnambool dentist helps patients overcome their dental fear and anxiety every day.

Even if your experience has kept you from the dentist for a long time, there is no need to be worried.

You can be assured in knowing that the Warrnambool Dental offers a comfortable, anxiety-free visit for patients just like you.

#2. Ease of treatment

Whether you struggle with a gag reflex or have sensitive teeth or gums, sedation allows your Warrnambool dentist to perform dental procedures without the stress you may be used to experience.

With a comfortable patient, treatment is easier for both the patient and the dentist as it allows the patient to rest, enabling our dentist to focus solely on the procedure.

#3. Comfort and rest

Feel at home and comfortable with your dentist? It happens every day at Warrnambool Dental through the use of sedation.

Not just help you feel comfortable, sedation dentistry allows you to rest quietly and calmly during your treatment.

#4. Fewer appointments

Sedation allows us to do more treatment in fewer visits.

If ever you need a cavity filled, treatment for gum disease, cosmetic procedures like teeth whitening or fixing a chipped tooth, you’ll be amazed at how much dental treatment can be accomplished while you are calmly sedated.

More extensive procedures that generally require multiple visits may be completed in as little as one appointment with the advancements of sedation dentistry.

Is sedation dentistry safe?
There is always a risk of getting anaesthesia. It is usually safe, though, when given by experienced dentists.
How long does it take for the effects of sedation to wear off?
The sedative effect will gradually wear off during the day. Mostly, patients are well enough to return to their normal activities within 24 hours, depending on the nature of their work.
Can you feel pain while under sedation?
Although it can be upsetting, you can’t feel any pain under sedatives. In fact, they are administered so you won’t feel any pain in the area to be treated during the procedure.
How long does oral sedation take to work?
You’ll wait until the sedative takes effect. Oral sedatives metabolise in about 30-60 minutes.
What are dental implants? Do I need them?

Dental implants are surgically placed metal, screw-like posts (usually made of titanium) that restore missing teeth so you can achieve a complete, healthy smile.

If you are someone who has missing teeth and would want to restore them with durable replacements, dental implants may be for you!
