At Pitt St Dental Centre, we understand that visiting the dentist can be stressful. When it comes to dental procedures, our Sydney city dentists are committed to your comfort and wellbeing. We offer a variety of sedation dentistry, anaesthesia and pain management options to ensure that you’re comfortable and relaxed. If your anxious, or have extensive dental work to be completed, sedation dentistry allows you relax in a pain free environment and have no recollection of the dental procedure. The best part is you get to wake up with a brand new smile, or your extensive dentistry completed with no memory or recollection of it.
Throughout all sedation dentistry and anaesthetic procedures, specially trained health professionals closely monitor you. Modern sedation dentistry and anaesthesia are very low risk and considered safe for almost all patients. Risks are greater in the elderly, very young and those with pre-existing conditions – your dentist will go over your options should they have any concerns.
Happy Gas/Nitrous Oxide
Commonly known as ‘happy gas’ or ‘laughing gas’, nitrous oxide is used to relax patients. A simple form of sedation, a small mask is placed over the nose and nitrous oxide is inhaled. This results in a relaxed and happy sensation.
At Pitt St Dental Centre, our experienced Sydney city dentists utilise happy gas for a range of dental procedures.
An efficient and effective anxiety and pain relief method, intravenous sedation is administered by a virtually painless injection through a vein on the forearm or back of hand. Patients experience drowsiness and relaxation, often described as a dreamlike state. Almost all patients report that time passes very quickly and that they have virtually no recollection of dental work.
Preparation and Aftercare
Leading up to your procedure, your dentist at Pitt St Dental Centre will provide you with comprehensive preparation instructions. For some patients, fasting and avoiding certain foods, liquids or medications may be required. Your dentist will ensure that you’re completely comfortable with, and fully understand, all preparation requirements.
After your procedure, your dentist will provide you, and sometimes your guardian, with specific aftercare instructions to minimise discomfort or pain during recovery. This may involve rest, pain management techniques or medications, abstaining from particular activities or avoiding certain foods or liquids.
Anaesthesia and sedation dentistry preparation and recovery instructions are relatively simple to follow. Should you require any clarifications, our Sydney city dentists encourage questions and phone calls. We want you to be completely comfortable and confident throughout your entire procedure.
