In-house sedation in Cherrybrook – What we offer
Sometimes wrongly referred to as ‘sleep dentistry’, Cherrybrook patients should know that they actually remain awake throughout treatment – albeit in a somewhat sleepy state. We take the time to discuss your concerns and expectations and will give you the lowdown on exactly how it works and what you might expect.
However, as a quick guide, there are several types of sedation with the most common types being;
- IV Sedation – which is administered via a small cannula placed on the back of the hand and,
- Inhalation sedation – more technically known as relative analgesia – or RA for short!
Each method delivers good results and allows patients to have the treatment they need while placing them in a relaxed and happy state.
The benefits of offering sedation dentistry in Cherrybrook are as follows
Reduction in the number of visits
Some nervous or anxious dental patients find it hard to even sit in the dental chair, let alone have treatment, so even having one treatment can be a real push. With in-house sedation dentistry, however, patients can have several or more treatments while remaining safe under sedation.
You’ll be feeling pretty good
They don’t call it happy gas for nothing -it’s true! Nitrous oxide – the gas used for RA treatments and other sedatives used in IV treatments, is designed to put you in a happy, relaxed state. Most people don’t know much about the treatment, but many people do experience feelings of euphoria and a gentle floating sensation.
Zero after effects
Some people feel sick after receiving general anaesthetic and it can stay in your system for hours – even days. Happy gas, on the other hand, gives you zero after effects, so patients will be back to normal pretty quickly after the event.
IV sedation doesn’t work quite as instantaneously but patients should be back to normal within the hour. For this reason, it may be okay to drive home after undergoing happy gas, but you will need someone to drive you if IV sedation is carried out. Either way, consult with Dr Lin or Dr Chung first.
It’s not a general anaesthetic
Sedation is not a general anaesthetic and as a result, any risks are virtually non-existent. Instead, patients who are coming out of sedation tend to feel very relaxed and generally aware of their surroundings.
In-house sedation here in Cherrybrook can be safely used on adults and children alike across a wide range of treatments. Because patients remain awake, they are able to respond to the dentist’s demands.
If you’re putting off some much-needed dental work because you fear the pain or discomfort more than most, in house sedation in Cherrybrook might just be the answer.
