Sleep Dentistry Experts

Our Gold Coast dentists are experts in sedation dentistry or ‘sleep dentistry’ is a type of dental treatment that uses medication to help patients relax and feel more comfortable during procedures. There are several levels of sedation, ranging from minimal to deep sedation, and the level of sedation will depend on the type of procedure being performed and the patient’s level of anxiety.

Here are the most common forms of sedation used in dentistry:

Minimal Sedation:

This type of sedation is used to help patients feel calm and relaxed, but they are still able to respond to verbal cues and follow instructions. Minimal sedation is usually achieved through the use of nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas.

Moderate Sedation:

This type of sedation is often referred to as conscious sedation. The patient is relaxed and drowsy, but still able to respond to verbal cues. Moderate sedation is usually achieved through the use of oral medications.

Deep Sedation:

This type of sedation leaves the patient in a deeply relaxed state, and they may not be able to respond to verbal cues or follow instructions. Deep sedation is usually achieved through the use of intravenous medications. We are extremely fortunate to be able to offer in house IV sedation safely with a qualified trusted medical anaesthetist on site.
