Sedation Dentistry Norlane Geelong
Sedation dentistry is used to help provide a relaxing and anxiety-free experience for people who receive dental treatments.
This helps those who are too afraid to go to the dentist to receive the dental care they need while avoiding dental phobia.
Levels of Sedation
Minimal sedation – the patient is completely awake but relaxed.
Moderate sedation – the patient may slur their words and may not remember much of the procedure.
Deep sedation – the patient is on the edge of consciousness but can still be awakened.
General anaesthesia – the patient is completely unconscious.
Benefits of Sedation Dentistry
Overcome fear and anxiety
Your Norlane dentist helps patients overcome dental fear and anxiety.
Even if your past experiences kept you from the dentist for a long time, there is no need to be worried.
You can be assured in knowing that Norlane Dental Aesthetics and Implants offers a comfortable, anxiety-free visit for patients just like you.
Ease of treatment
Whether you have problems with a gag reflex or sensitive teeth or gums, sedation allows your Norlane dentist to perform procedures without the stress you may be used to experience.
With a relaxed patient, the treatment is easier for us as it allows you to rest, allowing us to focus solely on the procedure.
Comfort and rest
Do you want to feel at home and comfortable with your dentist? It happens every day with us at Norlane Dental Aesthetics and Implants through sedation dentistry.
Sedation dentistry allows you keep calm during your treatment.
If ever you need a tooth filled, gum disease treatment, cosmetic procedures or chipped tooth repair, you’ll be amazed at how much dental treatment can be done while you are sedated.
More extensive procedures that generally require multiple visits may be completed in as little as one appointment with sedation dentistry.
