What is Sedation (Sleep) Dentistry Exactly?

The name ‘sleep dentistry’ is somewhat misleading because unlike a general anaesthetic, the patient isn’t normally asleep. On the contrary, ‘conscious sedation dentistry’ as it’s perhaps better known, places the patient in a relaxed but conscious state enabling them to receive treatment in a comfortable way.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of sedation dentistry in Kellyville Ridge?
Modern sleep dentistry is both safe and comfortable and unlike a general anaesthetic, won’t leave you feeling groggy. Recovery is relatively quick sometimes within minutes, sometimes a little longer and is ideal for most patients including children over the age of 10.

Perhaps the biggest advantage of sleep dentistry is that it creates an amnesic effect – meaning that most patients don’t remember much about the treatment. This is ideal for those undergoing relatively invasive treatments such as dental implants. Finally, sedation dentistry allows for multiple treatments to be carried out in one longer appointment for the utmost convenience.

Can I drive home after undergoing sedation dentistry?
Although recovery can be relatively speedy, our Kellyville family dentists would always recommend that you don’t drive yourself home after treatment. Instead, it’s better and safer to have a family member or friend drive you home.
