What is Sedation?

The technique involves the use of a sedative medication to put you into a calm and restful sleep like state, whilst you remain conscious.

At Diamond Dental Care & Implant Centre, we want you to feel comfortable every step of the way, especially through more complex dental treatments. We offer three types of sedation to reduce any worries.

    • HAPPY GAS – Inhalation Sedation which involves breathing in nitrous oxide gas to decrease pain sensitivity. Commonly known as ‘laughing gas’ or ‘happy gas’
    • ORAL SEDATION – is a sedative in the form of tablet or liquid usually taken an hour before appointment. Talk with your Dentist whether this is suitable for you.
    • SLEEP DENTISTRY – Intravenous (IV) Sedation (sometimes known as ‘twilight sedation’ or ‘sleep dentistry’) involves a small injection of sedative into your arm, which quickly makes you feel drowsy and relaxed.
