Sedation Dentistry

Wake up to a beautiful smile!

Unfortunately, may people avoid going to the dentist because of an extreme fear or anxiety. Often this is because of an unpleasant dental experience in the past. If you have been hiding your smile or putting up with pain because of a dental anxiety, your life is about to change! New and safe sedation techniques mean you can have years of dental treatments done quickly, with little or no discomfort.

You may be a candidate for sedation dentistry if you have any of the following symptoms:

  1. High dental fear or anxiety.
  2. Very sensitive teeth which are difficult to numb.
  3. A gag reflex.
  4. Extensive dental problems.
  5. A tight schedule.

General anaesthetics produce an unconscious state in which the person is:

  • unaware of what is happening
  • pain-free
  • immobile
  • free from any memory of the dental procedure

General anesthesia can be administered as an inhaled gas or as an injected liquid. There are several drugs and gases that can be combined or used alone to produce general anesthesia.
