Help conquer your dental fear with conscious sedation here at Comfort Dental Centre Buderim.
There are various forms of conscious sedation that allow you to relax and/or become sleepy during treatment procedures.
At Comfort Dental Centre Buderim, we provide a pain-free, comfortable and pleasant dental experience using conscious sedation methods.
With conscious sedation, patients with dental fear or phobia can go through an entire treatment with comfort and ease.
Conscious sedation doesn’t put you to sleep. A measured mixture of nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oxygen makes you feel a bit lightheaded and more relaxed while you undergo the procedure. The medication provides a calming effect but doesn’t prevent communication between you and the dentist.
The patient breathes nitrous oxide combined with oxygen through a mask placed gently over the nose. The nitrous oxide helps you relax into a state in which you are less sensitive to pain and anxiety, but in which you remain fully conscious.
The calming effect lasts throughout the procedure but subsides once the mask is removed. Nitrous oxide sedation is the only sedation after which a patient may be able to drive themselves home after a dental procedure is completed.
If you have any questions about conscious sedation and how it can help with your dental anxiety, feel free to phone us or visit our dental practice in Buderim. Don’t let fear affect your dental health. We have the best solution for you.
