Dental anxiety can cause many people to avoid seeking treatment even when their mouth is sore. However, visiting your dentist does not have to be an uncomfortable experience! Located in Perth, Dental Reflections combine unsurpassed customer service with high-quality dental treatments to ensure your visit is comfortable and relaxing.
Sleep dentistry is an ideal option for those concerned about their dental procedures. At our Perth clinic, we offer Nitrous (laughing gas) to ensure patients feel at ease during their visit. But some patients require deeper sedation to facilitate their dental procedures.
If you experience high dental anxiety and fear, have a severe gag reflex, very sensitive teeth, complex treatment needs or just need to have dentistry done while fully relaxed, sedation dentistry may be an option for you. This may also help your dentist to perform the procedures on a very cooperative and relaxed patient!
With a team of highly qualified dentists, we offer a range of sedative medications that can be administered in different ways, including oral or intravenous sedation (“twilight sedation”). Our aim is to relieve your anxiety and make you feel relaxed while having your dental treatment done.
If you are having oral sedation, you will need to arrive one hour prior to your appointment time so that we can administer the oral sedatives. Our reception staff will give you specific instructions as to fasting requirements.
Alternatively, if you’re having intravenous sedation, also known as sleep dentistry, an expert medically trained doctor will administer the sedative drug through an injection. Your heart rate, blood oxygen levels, blood pressure and breathing will be closely monitored during the procedure. Although still conscious and able to follow instructions, you may not remember anything about the procedure.
Our team of dental professionals in Joondalup are committed to helping your experience at the dentist be comfortable and stress free. Contact us today on (08) 9300 1337 to discuss the advantages of each option and recommend the most suitable form of sedation for you.
