What are the options for sedation/sleep dentistry?

Oral Sedation

  • Oral sedation is a form of tablet that your dentist or GP could prescribe you and you can take it sometime before your dental appointment and that will relax you and will reduce your anxiety.
  • You will be fully awake though.
  • You will need to be escorted to and from the practice and will need someone to be with you for next 24 hours.
  • This is a very mild form of sedation and not suitable for people who have serious anxiety.

Happy gas

  • Happy gas can be administered to you to relax and comfort you and get a stressful procedure done.
  • It is safe to be administered in most cases, and is readily available in our practice.
  • You will be fully conscious of your surroundings but relaxed to some degree.

IV Sedation

  • A form of sedation that can be performed in the dental practice under the supervision of our anaesthetist.
  • This form of sedation needs planning and coordination between the practice staff and the dental sedationist.
  • If you have serious dental anxiety/phobia, this is the way to go.
  • You will not have any memory of the procedure.
  • You can go home straight after the procedure under the supervision of a responsible adult.

General Anesthesia (In hospital)

  • GA, as is more commonly said, it is performed in the hospital. You will be fully unconscious.
  • For patients with severe dental anxiety, both options of in-dental practice IV sedation and hospital GA will give utmost anxiety control and no memory of the procedure.
  • If you or your loved one experiences dental phobia, talk to us. Our dentists are highly experienced and very accommodating
