Sedation and General Anaesthetic
Sedation Dentistry or Sleep Dentistry is a procedure where the patient is medicated in order to feel relaxed if they are anxious or nervous. It is also used for certain procedures such as wisdom teeth extractions.
The patient can be semi-conscious or unconscious during procedures. At Accent Dental Care we use a variety of options for sedation dentistry such as:
Intravenous sedation, also known as IV sedation is another form of sedation dentistry, anaesthesia is injected into a patient’s blood stream by a Anaesthetist. The patient feels drowsy, may sleep during the procedure, but is still able to interact with their dentist and other staff.
The patient can be semi-conscious or unconscious during procedures. At Accent Dental Care we use a variety of options for sedation dentistry such as local anaesthesia, inhalation sedation (Nitrous), oral sedation, intravenous sedation or general anaesthesia.
Principal dentist, Dr. Daniel Abbondanza reserves lists at Southbank Day Surgery, Westminster day Surgery and Hedland Health Campus, and performs wisdom tooth extractions on a regular basis. However, more simple extractions can be completed in the dental surgery under local or intravenous sedation. We can accommodate patients quickly and efficiently, allowing them to resume their normal lives as quickly as possible.
All dental and surgical procedures carry risks. Treatment advice pending clinical suitability and consideration of alternative treatments. Before proceeding you may consider seeking a second opinion.
