Sedation Dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, is the process of performing dental treatments while the patient is under conscious (or twilight) sedation. This process can be beneficial in many circumstances including when complex extensive dentistry needs to be undertaken and when the patient faces anxiety about dental work in general. If you’ve experienced issues with extreme gum sensitivity, a fear of needles, a low pain threshold, or strong gag reflex when visiting the dentist, Sedation Dentistry could be the solution. When you awake from the procedure you will have little or no memory of the experience and feel as though you have had a quality sleep. It will also seem as though little time has passed and feelings of anxiety were not present. Many Australians are afraid of going to the dentist and it’s completely normal to have this fear, however you shouldn’t let it prevent you from fixing that toothache or finally going for that long overdue check up. Sedation Dentistry is a relaxing experience and enables you to get the treatment you need, without the worry.
