Your Katoomba dentists want nothing to stand in the way of your dental care and healthy smile. This is one of the top reasons we offer sedation dentistry. As a bonus, we also provide a virtually painless anesthesia delivery.
Patients opt for sedation for a variety of reasons:
- Fear and anxiety about dental work
- Multiple treatments during a single visit
- A strong gag reflex
We encourage you to talk to us about your sedation needs, no matter your reasons.
Three Levels of Dental Sedation in Katoomba
Our sedation starts with nitrous oxide, a safe relaxant delivered in gas form through a nasal mask. This medication produces feelings of detachment and ease. Sometimes it is called laughing gas. There are no lingering effects with this option, and you can drive yourself home.
We also offer oral sedation, which is a pill taken before treatment. Some patients who choose oral sedation do not remember portions of their treatment. With this option, you’ll need transportation.
IV Sedation is delivered intravenously and may be a bit more potent than oral sedation. Unfortunately, this option also means you’ll need transport home from our dental clinic.
