One of the major reasons people avoid visiting the dentist is not cost related or finding the time but rather fear of pain, extremely sensitive teeth or a traumatic dental experiences.
Dapto Dentists understand these concerns and offer pain-relief and suggest sedation dentistry options to help make our procedures comfortable for even the most anxious patients. At our Dapto Dental Clinic, dental professionals are known for providing treatments in a gentle and caring manner.
Oral sedation is an affordable, effective and non-invasive method that is safe and comfortable for patients. It involves use of sleep inducing/calming medications that are administered before or during the dental treatment. Most treatment can be done in the dental chair without the need for further sedation techniques. Talk to our friendly dentist your needs so that he/she can help you better in such situations.
The sedation protocol involves the dentist/GP prescribing a medication to be taken orally, usually about an hour prior to the planned treatment. Your dentist will advise you to bring a responsible adult along with you for the procedure when sedation is required.
If you require a general anaesthesia, usually it is administered and treated at Wollongong Day surgery and our dentists are registered to provide the treatments there.
