Frequently Asked Questions About Sedation

The safety of dental sedation is contingent upon a variety of factors, such as age, medical history, health conditions, and medication use. Sedation dentistry can be used in a range of treatments, including root canal treatment and other surgical procedures.

It is essential to consult with a dental professional prior to undergoing any type to ensure it is the safest and most appropriate option for the individual. All safety precautions must be taken into consideration before administering any type. Oral sedation is usually the preferred method as it is the least invasive, safest, and most comfortable option for patients.

It is possible to be fully unconscious during the procedure, depending on the type used. Oral or inhalable sedatives provide mild to moderate sedation, allowing patients to remain awake and relaxed yet not remember much of the procedure afterwards.

While more suitable for complex dental procedures, deeper forms of sedation can make patients less aware or completely unconscious. This option is often used for anxious patients who require dental treatments.

Dental care at Wattle Park Dental in Surrey Hills and its surrounding areas may include sedation, depending on the level of oral health and the complexity of the dental procedure that needs to be completed. Various forms are available, ranging from mild sedation to deeper sedation, and should be discussed with a qualified dental professional in order to ensure the best possible outcome.

Restrictions on the age of patients receiving dental sedation may apply depending on the type used. Generally, dental sedation is only recommended for children at least six years old and is unsuitable for infants. The type used must also be appropriate for a child’s age, weight, and physical condition. Some methods are only used for patients of a certain age and above. Additionally, moderate sedation may be limited to children over the age of 12. This is because it can affect the natural tooth development and healthy teeth of younger children and their overall dental experience.

It is important to ensure that any patient receiving dental sedation is in good health and has no underlying medical issues or gum disease that it could exacerbate. As such, patients should always discuss any relevant medical history with their dentist prior to their dental appointment. Furthermore, a good oral hygiene regimen should be followed to minimise potential dental issues.

Recovery time following dental procedures under sedation may vary depending on the type used and the individual’s response. The principal dentist may provide more specific recovery guidelines depending on the treatment and type.

Generally, lighter forms of sedation may cause a person to feel back to normal within a few hours after the dental visit. However, deeper forms might cause grogginess for the remainder of the day, and it is recommended to have someone drive them home.

With some forms of sedation, the individual may need to rest for a few days after the procedure. It is also recommended to seek help from a qualified health practitioner for any health concerns that arise.

Following the dentist’s aftercare instructions is important to ensure a full recovery and protect the individual’s health.

Dental sedation can be beneficial for patients with a strong gag reflex as it can reduce sensitivity to gagging and make procedures easier to tolerate.

We understand that some patients may experience traumatic memories during dental treatment procedures, so we strive to provide the best care to ensure a comfortable experience. Our professional experts are experienced in helping patients, especially children, who may have a knocked-out tooth or be nervous about visiting the dentist.

We prioritise ensuring that the day after sedation dentistry is as comfortable as possible.

Guidelines for eating and drinking prior to the administration of dental sedatives may differ depending on the type of sedative used.

Patients should always consult their dentist or dental office about their fears about dentist visits.
