If you start to feel anxiety when you think of going to the dentist, you’re not alone. It’s all too common that people have a phobia of dentistry, often due to a negative experience in the past. At Smile Creation, we often care for patients who used to feel nervous and now get through their appointments with ease.
One of the options available to you is an oral conscious sedation. This solution allows you to sleep through your dental appointment, waking up with little to no memory of the procedures performed.
Our fully qualified dental anaesthetist will monitor you throughout the procedure, ensuring that everything goes smoothly.
Your anxiety is kept under control while you’re completely comfortable and relaxed. In fact, several procedures can be performed in a single visit that might ordinarily take months or years to complete.
The recovery from the anaesthetic can take from one to three hours. We recommend you have someone to pick you up after your appointment.
Smile Creation offers safe, family-friendly dentistry. To give you the best experience in our practice, we ask you to come in for a consultation prior to starting a sedation dental treatment.
You will meet with our dental anaesthetist who will ask you a series of questions to make sure you’re a good candidate. Sedation dentistry is a great option for those highly anxious for upcoming dental treatment.
Once we determine you’re a good candidate for the treatment, you can book in your next appointment to start the procedure.
It usually takes one to three hours to fully recover from a sedation dentistry treatment. We recommend you plan your visit in advance and have someone ready to pick you up to take you home after.
If you need a cab or uber, our reception staff can help arrange this for you following your treatment.
Sedation dentistry is a great option for those highly anxious and who are having a few procedures completed at once. The first step is to book in your consultation with Dr Sanjay and our dental anaesthetist.
During your consultation, we will discover your smile goals and address any concerns. Once we determine you’re a good candidate, we can then begin your treatment at your next appointment.
