Intravenous Sedation Dentistry (also known as twilight sedation or sleep dentistry) is usually opted for by patients who have an immense sense of fear and anxiety when visiting the dentist. Patients are put to sleep for their entire treatment. IV sedation is effective, safe and administered by a highly-trained expert. This option is most commonly used for longer procedures such as wisdom teeth surgery or root canal procedures.
Our dental experts will make sure you’re completely informed about the process beforehand including the risks and side effects of each sleep dentistry option. We encourage patients ask any questions or express any concerns they may have before treatment commences.
Nitrous Oxide ‘Happy Gas’
Nitrous oxide (also known as happy gas) is administered through a small mask that fits over the patients mouth and nose. This safe pain management procedure allows the patient to remain conscious, relax and reduce any potential discomfort or anxiety that he or she may be faced with. The effects of nitrous oxide sedation are completely reversible, which means that you’re able to drive safely immediately after your appointment.

• If you feel anxious or scared whenever you visit the dentist
• If you’ve had a previous unpleasant experience when visiting a dental clinic
• If you want to feel as relaxed as possible during your appointment
