Twilight sedation is a safe and reliable method of having a relaxing and comfortable dental appointments. Our anaesthetists come to our practice and administer sedation that make the longest appointments appear to be over in a few minutes. It is ideal for nervous or anxious patients who dread having dental procedures.
Twilight sedation allows us to complete a lot more treatment that we would otherwise require multiple appointments.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
Our anaesthetists have medical backgrounds and as a result a significant portion of the sedation bill is covered by Medicare
Twilight sedation allows to vary the depth of your anaesthesia. During simple moments of your appointment you will be slightly awake and responsive. We are able to be much more gentler with our patients this way. When we are doing more surgical procedures the depth of anaesthesia is increased to make sure you are completely comfortable.
We usually request that our patients do not eat or drink on the day of the surgery. A good hearty meal the night before is also recommended.
We also recommend someone pick you up at the end of your appointment. Alternatively, we can place you in one of our recovery rooms to rest and catch a taxi home
