What to Know About Sedation Dentistry
Sedation dentistry in Campbelltown is safe when it’s provided by an experienced dentist and registered anaesthetist. However, complications could arise if a patient has obstructive sleep apnoea or is obese.
Eating Or Drinking
In most cases, patients should refrain from eating or drinking for around six hours before their appointment with the dentist. If you’re taking medication, continue to do so as usual unless your dentist tells you otherwise.
Unless you have received nitrous oxide to help you through your treatment, Campbelltown patients will need a friend to drive them home. They should rest at home until the effects of the medication wear off.
Sedation dentistry is safe for kids, but we understand parents can feel a little anxious when their children take unfamiliar medication. Possible side effects are short-lived and include snoring, irritability, fever, and nausea.
Sedation dentistry in Campbelltown does not relieve pain. Patients will be sedated before their treatment commences and will still receive local anaesthesia to numb their teeth and gums once the sedative has kicked in.
A general anaesthetic is provided in a hospital setting and places a patient in a deep sleep. It’s best for Campbelltown patients with a low pain threshold, who have difficulty sitting still for long periods of time, or who struggle to keep their mouths open.
