If you are very anxious, or having more complex surgery, we offer twilight sedation - your visit will be relaxed and you will have no memory of it. This service is provided under the supervision of a visiting anaesthetist, adhering to the strict guidelines of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists and using all necessary monitoring and safety equipment.
The fee attributed to intravenous sedation may be applicable for a rebate from Medicare
Please be aware that regardless of the sedation method used:
- You will not be able to drive home or operate machinery after your procedure
- A responsible adult must accompany you home and there needs to be a friend or family member who can stay with you for 24 hours after sedation
- Local anaesthetic and numbing cream will still be administered to your mouth
- We ask that you provide us with details of all medications you may be taking, whether or not your doctor prescribes them and including any health supplements or natural remedies
