At Council Avenue Dental & Implant Centre we understand the apprehension, anxiety or fear that some patients experience when going to the dentist. We also place your comfort and experience with us as of paramount importance and for this reason we have an option so those patients suffering from anxiety, phobias, fear or medical conditions can experience their dental work in a relaxed, stress-free state.
IV Sedation (Sleep Dentistry)
Intravenous Sedation or ‘Sleep Dentistry’ is the ideal option for anxious patients to experience their dental treatment in a relaxed manner to ensure their experience is a positive one. Unlike a general anaesthetic, patients under IV Sedation will be partially conscious, experiencing a feeling of deep relaxation, where time passes very quickly and no pain is experienced. Upon awakening patients will remember little or no portion of their treatment. This is also an effective option for patients who require complex treatment or those undergoing multiple treatments in a single session.
