Sedation Dentistry

We understand that large amounts of dental work can cause stress and anxiety to some of our patients. Being comfortable during your dental treatment during your dental appointment is very important to us. If you have had problems with completing dental treatment and getting the care you need, then perhaps sedation is a good option for you.

At Sydney Cosmetic Dentistry, we are able to offer intravenous (IV) medications to our patients with the help of our qualified medical anaesthetist.

Sedation dentistry, also known as “sleep dentistry” or “twilight sedation” is a great way to help people relax whilst having their dental treatment done. All of your treatment can be completed in the one treatment while you are comfortable. And thanks to the medications, you won’t remember any of it!

How does it work?

Our medical specialist will put you to “sleep” in a safe, relaxed and comfortable environment as you are closely monitored for the duration of your treatment. You will “wake up” shortly after your treatment and all of your dental work has been completed. As you will be drowsy for a while longer, you will need someone to escort you back home.

There is no need to put dental treatment off any longer due to phobias or anxiety. Its success and safety make it an efficient way for our patients to have their treatment performed and get their oral health back on track. Our experienced medical specialists will ensure the complete safety and wellbeing of our patients in the comfort of our practice.
