If you suffer from dental anxiety or dentistry makes you uneasy, we offer sedation dentistry in Avondale, Auckland.
Most of us don’t like to think about someone working in our mouths, which prevent some people from visiting their dental clinic even if they do not have anxiety.
At Avondale Dental Centre, our compassionate dentists and friendly team understand this issue, which is why we offer sedation dentistry in Avondale, Auckland.
Your Sedation Dentist in Avondale, Auckland
Your dentist will discuss sedation dentistry with you and make sure you’re a good candidate for this service. We provide various levels of sedation—from moderate to sleep dentistry.
Sleep dentistry relies on IV sedation. You will not remember your procedure, but you will be monitored closely throughout your time in our dental office. Monitoring includes oxygenation and pulse readings.
Our patients who are uneasy about dentistry do very well with IV sedation or sleep dentistry in Avondale, Auckland.
However, it is important to have someone transport you home following sleep dentistry. We also encourage rest following your dental procedure.
What to Expect
Aside from feeling sleepy following sleep dentistry, you may also have mild discomfort or swelling from the procedure itself. Most discomfort from dental procedures clears up in a day or two. Ask your dentist about pain medications to see you through.
Following sleep dentistry (and even mild sedation dentistry), we strongly recommend not making any life decisions or operating vehicles or machinery that day. You can usually resume normal activities the following day. However, your dentist will provide instructions based on your specific treatment.
