Dentists Double Bay  has done dental sedation for many years. He makes sure that you have a better dental experience

How does Dentists Double Bay  sedation work?

With safe and proven techniques, patients receive a sedative drug which works rapidly to create a relaxed state that is maintained and monitored throughout treatment. Beyond creating an optimal environment for you, the patient, dentistry with IV Sedation also allows us to complete multiple procedures in one appointment…

An IV is started by the dentist allowing all medications for relaxation to enter your body. You will not remember or be aware of any procedures or especially “getting numb.” You breathe on your own and can often talk during the procedure. This is not like the hospital anaesthesia where you are' knocked out' fully.

Sedation Facts

  • It Really Works! You really can relax through your dental appointment.
  • You will have little or no memory of the experience.
  • You won’t remember any sounds or smells.
  • You can relax for up to five to six hours after the IV sedation. The time you are relaxing will vary depending on your needed treatment and type of anesthesia delivered.
  • Complex dental treatments that often require multiple appointments can often be done in as little as one or two! All while you relax.
  • People who have difficulty getting numb will have no problem when relaxed.
  • Sedation dentistry is a safe way to reduce the fatigue of extended dental treatment requiring long visits.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Will I feel any pain?

You will feel almost nothing! We even numb the back of your hand prior to starting the IV.

How long will I be relaxing?

Depending on your needs, from two to six hours. You will rest for 3-4 hours when you get home also, most likely.

Will someone need to accompany me?

Yes, due to the sedative effects of the medication, you will need a responsible adult to drive you to our clinic and home again.

Will I be monitored?

Yes, one of our team is always with you and your vital signs are constantly monitored during the entire visit. You are never alone.

Will I really be totally relaxed?

Yes. You’ll receive just enough sedation so that you’ll be relaxed and unconcerned about the dental treatment.

Will I remember anything?

Typically, no. At the end of the treatment, you’ll have little or no memory of what was accomplished.

Will I feel any pain?

Most patients experience no discomfort whatsoever during treatment and feel surprisingly good afterwards.

What treatments can I have under sedation?

Any procedure that’s usually done in our clinic can be done with sedation- tooth extraction, fillings, root canals, veneers, Implants and even teeth cleaning.

Is dentistry using IV sedation safe for me?

We’ll review your medical history and if necessary, consult with your medical doctor to be sure, and you’ll be constantly monitored while under sedation.

How long will I be off work?

Each patient is different, so this is a difficult question to answer. However, we find that patients only need to take off the day of the procedure. Most are working the next day.

How long will I be under Sedation?

The length of your appointment will depend upon the procedure being done. There will also be a recovery period of 15 to 20 minutes after the procedure is finished. Because of the drowsiness, you must not drive or operate any machinery until the day after your intravenous sedation.

If you wish to have treatment under sedation please let your dentist know at your consultation visit so that the appropriate time can and appropriate consent obtained and discuss your medical history with you.

Patients can avail of Oral and IV Sedation.

Conscious sedation is an excellent adjunct to providing a safe, anxiety-free, dental experience to those who are afraid of the dentist. Conscious Sedation is not just for anxious and nervous patients, it can also help patients who have difficulty controlling their gag reflex. Conscious Sedation allows us to perform several dental procedures in just one appointment as we can work even more efficiently and for a longer period than usual. Therefore, what might normally require multiple visits, such as multiple fillings, or a combination of different treatments, can be accomplished in a single appointment. Conscious sedation is a safe, effective and predictable way to reduce patient anxiety and enables you to undergo procedures in a more pleasant fashion.

Conscious Sedation is suitable for those who have:

With conscious sedation, years of neglect can be reversed in a few hours.

  • Most patients feel no discomfort whatsoever during their treatment and feel surprisingly good afterwards.
  • You’ll receive just enough sedation so that you’ll be completely unaware of the treatment, as you would if you were asleep.
  • At the end of the treatment, you’ll have little or no memory of your dental visit.
  • You will feel just fine. For your safety, we do require that you have a family member or friend drive you home and stay with you for the remainder of the day.
  • Before starting any treatment, we review your medical history, two members of our team are always with you and we monitor you, and your vital signs, very closely while you’re sedated.
