What types of sedation do we offer here?
Special care is available to anxious patients here at High Dental Implants Melbourne. There are two options of sedation that are offered in order to make a surgical procedure go more smoothly for you, allowing you to be relaxed and comfortable.
The first form of conscious sedation is intravenous sedation. The sedative is injected so that you can relax and forget about the dental treatment that is going on.
The second form is an inhalation method, which is typically preferable for those patients who do not like needles. You breathe in a mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a small mask that is placed over your nose and mouth.
You will remain awake and aware of what is going on during the treatment, however you will feel deeply relaxed and at peace. The gas mixture is designed to make you feel calm throughout the appointment.
All of the nurses and dentists have been trained to provide these two types of conscious sedation that allows you to deal with any fear that you may have surrounding your treatment.
For those of you who are experiencing a dental phobia or fear, which is stopping you from coming to visit us, we would love for you to contact us so that we can provide you with information and advice that may help you take the first step in overcoming these fears.
