Sedation Dentistry at Bald Hills Dental

For many people, a trip to the dentist is a less than enjoyable event. Whether you’ve had a bad experience in the past or feel anxious about upcoming treatment, our dentists are committed to providing you with gentle, individualised care.

Who Can Benefit From Sedation?

Woman receiving dental sedationWhen anxiety interferes with getting the care you deserve, it’s time to consider requesting dental sedation during your treatment. Inhalations sedation with “laughing gas” provides:

  • Fast and safe results
  • Moderate analgesic benefits
  • Quick reversal with no lingering side-effects
  • Relief for patients of all ages

Our patients that receive laughing gas during a dental procedure can drive themselves home afterward, thanks to the quick reversal of the sedative. Be sure to let us know of any underlying medical conditions you may have or medications that you’re taking (including over-the-counter drugs) as these may affect your candidacy for a sedative.

Will I Still be Awake?

Yes. Laughing gas sedation will help you to feel more at ease and carefree but you’ll still be fully conscious throughout the procedure. Some people do get slightly sleepy and tend to doze off since they’re so relaxed but laughing gas does not cause a deep drowsiness the way stronger sedatives do. Dentist Dr Emad will still use local anaesthetic to numb any areas being worked on, to ensure the highest level of comfort possible. You can also select your favourite music to listen to during the procedure.

When to Consider Sedation Dentistry

  • Longer procedures
  • Oral surgeries and tooth extractions
  • Smile makeovers
  • Anxiety or restlessness
  • Fear of the dentist
