Sedation therapy, or sleep dentistry, is a solution designed to take the anxiousness away from patients who dread going to the dentist or dental treatments. Some people can feel fearful or uncomfortable with the vulnerability associated with being in the dental chair. At Thirroul Dental Studio we have two solutions for these patients so you have the option of an axious free visit with us:
Nitrous Oxide/ Happy Gas
Nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation, also known as Relative Analgesia (RA) or "Happy Gas", is administered through a nose mask making you feel warm and relaxed. Happy gas is like any other medication. Whilst it is a safe and commonly used sedation technique in many medical practices, everybody produces a slightly different reaction.
With oral sedation, you will be prescribed a medication that will make you drowsy and relaxed. This technique can also be used in conjunction with nitrous oxide for deeper sedation.
If you feel that the right dentist and psychological techniques alone won’t do the trick for you, have a look at the available pharmacological options for coping with dental anxiety.
The sedation or sleep therapy you go with will depend on the level of anxiety you experience and the amount of relaxation required. During your first visit our medical professionals will asses your condition and expectations and determine which treatment is best for you. It is paramount that your experience with us leaves you with a true smile coming from your heart, and of course, with "Safety First" in mind at all times.
