Sedation dentistry

Relax and drift away… before you know it, your dental procedure is done!

Dream Smile Dental Clinic uses advanced dental sedation  procedures for those who have a fear or phobia about any dental treatments or require teeth removed, such as wisdom teeth.

Using the latest and safest techniques in dental sedation, we can carry out general, reconstructive, extractions and cosmetic dentistry for patients.

If you have neglected your dental health because of deeply entrenched fears about dental treatment, dental sedation or sleep dentistry could be the answer you have been looking for.

Now you can have dental sedation here at Dream Smile while you sit in our modern dental chair accompanied by our highly trained and friendly team.

How it works

Back to top

Dental sedation is the use of supervised IV Sedation or Oral sedation and does not require hospitalisation or a general anaesthetic. Although it is commonly known as sleep dentistry you are actually in a highly relaxed state and not fully asleep. IV sedation uses a combination of sedative and pain relieving drugs, administered and supervised by our experienced sedationist. We will constantly adjust and maintain your sedation by monitoring your pulse, blood pressure, breathing, ventilation, oxygen saturation, ECG and your depth of sedation. You are never alone.

Sedation dentistry is used to create a drowsy and dream-like state of deep, calming relaxation for the entire duration of your dental procedure. During sedation dentistry you are in a very calm and relaxed state and breathing entirely on your own, without assistance or artificial ventilation.
