Sedation Dentistry

Sedation Dentistry - Wantirna South - Elite Smiles

Sedation provides a calming and anxiety-free experience for anxious people who receive dental treatments.

It helps patients who are afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding dental phobia.

Different Levels of Sedation

Minimal sedation – the patient is awake but calm.

Moderate sedation  – the patient may slur their words and not remember much about the procedure.

Deep sedation – the patient is on the edge of consciousness during the procedure.

General anaesthesia – the patient is completely unconscious during the procedure.

Qualified Candidates for Sedation

  • Can’t handle smells or noises at the dentist’s office
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Strong gag reflex
  • Trouble getting numb
  • Require a more complicated treatment
  • Feel conscious about how your teeth look
  • Wish to have a more relaxed treatment

Benefits of Sedation Dentistry

There are four benefits of sedation. They are:

Overcome fear and anxiety. Your Wantirna South dentist helps patients overcome dental fear and anxiety.

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

You can be reassured that Elite Smiles dental clinic offers a comfortable, anxiety-free visit for patients just like you.

Ease of treatment. Whether you have a gag reflex or have extremely sensitive teeth or gums, sedation allows your Wantirna South dentist to perform dental procedures without the stress you may be used to experience.

With a comfortable patient, any treatment is easier for both the patient and dentist as it allows the patient to calm down, enabling your dentist to focus solely on the procedure.

Comfort and rest. Want to feel at home and comfortable with your dentist? It happens every day at Elite Smiles dental clinic through the use of sedation.

Sedation dentistry allows you to rest quietly and calmly during your treatment.

Fewer appointments. Sedation allows completion of more treatments in fewer visits.

If ever you need a tooth decay filled, periodontal disease treatment, cosmetic makeover, or broken tooth repair, you’ll be amazed at how many dental treatments can be done while you are under sedation.

More complex procedures that need multiple visits may be finished in as short as one appointment with the advancements of sedation dentistry.
