Sleep Sedation Therapy Available

Sleep Sedation Therapy Available

We can offer you ‘Sleep sedation’ ( intravenous IV sedation) whilst undergoing different dental procedures. It is administered by a qualified and experienced medical doctor who monitors the complete procedure. Sometimes called “Twilight Sedation” it is often used by medical specialists to perform some procedures. It uses a combination of sedative and pain relieving drugs to create a drowsy relaxation before and during your dental procedure. This is a modern, safe and highly effective technique that will make your visit to the dentist a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable experience.

For simpler procedures an inexpensive form of relaxation can be achieved using a ‘Penthrox’ inhaler, used by doctors and ambulance paramedics to sedate patients.

It is important particularly before Sleep sedation to not eat any food (even snacks) for 6 hours before treatment, nor drink any liquids for 2 hours before.

Of course you are not allowed to drive after undergoing either sedation technique. One option to improve the cosmetic look of your smile is to have your metal-coloured fillings replaced with tooth-coloured or 'white' fillings. This is a safe procedure that entails one of our dentists removing any decay from your tooth, taking out the metal or amalgam filling and placing a tooth coloured filling instead. The new filling is made from a very hard substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.
