Dental sedation for Anxious patients
Does the very thought of a dental procedure make you anxious?
You are certainly not alone; in fact, a significant percentage of people experience dental fear and anxiety.
The team at Avoca Beach Dental can help with your dental anxiety and will make it our top priority to make your experience as comfortable and stress free as possible.
Having dental treatment while you are asleep is known as Sleep Dentistry and may also be referred to as Dental Sedation, Sleep Sedation, Twilight Sedation and Sedation Dentistry and involves IV sedation and anaesthesia to induce sleep and reduce pain, awareness and recollection during dental procedures. In this way, it alleviates the fear, anxiety and discomfort that may often be associated with general and paediatric dentistry.
Sedation dentistry allows patients to feel at ease and comfortable when undergoing a treatment. Some dental patients are apprehensive and anxious when they are having treatment completed and we understand that this may be a deterrent for many patients. By easily accommodating our patients with sedation, patients can complete their treatment plans with confidence.
