Sedation for the Anxious Patient

About Sedation for the Anxious Patient

In order to provide safe surgical procedures and for patients who are anxious, we offer options for sedation. These include, nitrous oxide sedation (happy gas), oral sedation & intravenous sedation “sleep dentistry”.

Sedation dentistry allows patients to feel at ease and comfort when undergoing a treatment. Some dental patients are apprehensive and anxious when they are having treatment completed and we understand that this may be a deterrent for many patients.

By easily accommodating our patients with sedation, they can complete their treatment plans with confidence.

Sedation is suitable for patients who:

  • Are afraid of visiting the dentist
  • X-rays
  • Have difficulty achieving the desired effects of local anaesthetic
  • Have sensitive teeth and gums
  • Struggle to sit still in the dentist’s chair for extended periods
  • Have a low pain threshold
  • Have complicated dental requirements or are undergoing a long procedure
