Leading Cosmetic Dentistry for You

Sedation Dentistry

Allure Dental provides sedation for our dental patients, resulting in a calm, stress-free visit to us each time you need dental work done at our conveniently located surgery near Joondalup, WA.

Sedation dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, is a technique used by dentists to help patients relax and feel more comfortable during dental procedures.

 It involves the use of sedatives, either oral medications or intravenous (IV) drugs, to help the patient relax and feel less anxious during the procedure.

Overall, sedation dentistry can help make dental procedures more comfortable and less stressful for patients, which can lead to better oral health outcomes and a more positive dental experience.

However, it is important to discuss the risks and benefits of sedation dentistry with your dentist to determine if it is the right option for you.

If you are in need of sedation dentistry, book a consultation to get started.

Enjoy the Benefits of Sleep Dentistry

Sleep dentistry (or sedation dentistry) gives you peace of mind before you get in the dentist’s chair that everything will be okay.

There are several levels of sedation used in dentistry, ranging from mild to deep sedation.

Mild sedation is commonly used to help patients relax during dental procedures. We recommend a twilight IV sedation in such instances. 

Moderate sedation, also known as conscious sedation, involves the use of oral medications or IV drugs to help the patient relax and feel less anxious, but still be awake and able to respond to the dentist’s instructions.

Deep sedation, is something we do not offer. Deep sedation is something that is only done in a hospital environment due to the need to maintain the open airway. 

Sedation dentistry can be beneficial for patients who experience dental anxiety, have a strong gag reflex, or need to undergo lengthy or complex dental procedures.

It can also be helpful for patients who have a fear of needles or are unable to tolerate local anesthesia.

Why Opt for Sedation?

There are several reasons why someone might choose sedation dental services, including:

  1. Dental anxiety or fear: Many people experience dental anxiety or fear, which can make it difficult for them to undergo even routine dental procedures. Sedation can help these patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointment.
  2. Strong gag reflex: Some people have a strong gag reflex, which can make it difficult for them to tolerate dental procedures. Sedation can help reduce the gag reflex, making it easier for the dentist to work on the patient’s teeth.
  3. Complex or lengthy procedures: Certain dental procedures, such as dental implants or root canals, can be lengthy or complex. Sedation can help the patient stay relaxed and comfortable throughout the procedure.

4. Sensitive teeth: Some people have sensitive teeth, which can make dental procedures painful or uncomfortable. Sedation can help reduce the patient’s sensitivity, making the procedure more tolerable.

5. Fear of needles or local anesthesia: Some people have a fear of needles or are unable to tolerate local anesthesia. Sedation can help these patients feel more relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointment.

In summary, sedation dental services can be beneficial for people who experience dental anxiety or fear, have a strong gag reflex, need to undergo complex or lengthy procedures, have sensitive teeth, or have a fear of needles or local anesthesia.

If you are considering sedation dental services, it is important to discuss the risks and benefits with your dentist to determine if it is the right option for you.
