Relaxation options at Dental Lounge

Twilight sedation

Intravenous sedation (aka IV or twilight sedation) is performed by medical doctors. A percentage of this treatment can be claimed through Medicare. IV sedation is a suitable alternative to a general anaesthetic. It’s less invasive, safely administered in-chair at Dental Lounge and proves great recovery rates.

How does it work? A combination of anaesthetic agents is administered through an intravenous line. This enables patients to feel relaxed, comfortable and sleepy almost instantly. Many say that twilight sedation can make a 4-hour appointment feel like 10 minutes! In most cases one will experience an amnesic effect, forgetting most of the treatment entirely.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Other sedation

Lighter sedation options are also available. These options are administered by our trained staff. They range from sedative tablet form, Happy Gas for inhalation, and Green Whistle. Depending on your choice, you may be required to begin your sedation before or during your appointment.

There are many great solutions to ensuring you feel relaxed and anxiety free. Come in and talk to us to find the right solution for you!
