TWILIGHT SEDATION

TWILIGHT SEDATION

We understand the thought of dental work can be frightening. Here at the Sydney Implant Institute, our dentists are experienced in treating nervous patients.

We can offer twilight sedation, a mild dose of general anaesthesia, which greatly reduces anxiety, discomfort and pain, and makes long appointments seem like just minutes. This is administered by medical doctors here at the practice and you will be provided with a receipt so you can claim a Medicare rebate.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner. You will not be able to drive for 24 hours after the surgery.

Frequently Asked Question

Frequently Asked Question

Dental anxiety is the feeling of uneasiness every time a person visits a dental clinic or thinks of dental procedures. This anxiety refrains people from visiting the dentist regularly and in some cases, some people avoid going to the dentist all together. This is problematic as many oral health issues can arise if not discovered early, avoiding the dentist can lead to oral health issues that could have otherwise been prevented.

Dental anxiety stops you from regularly visiting a dentist, and by avoiding the dentist you put yourself at the risk of developing serious dental diseases that will later require more complex treatments and emergency care. This situation, known as the ‘vicious cycle of dental anxiety’ involves people fearing the end result so much that they ultimately receive it just because they were anxious to prevent it in the first place. 

Best advice to maintain good oral health would be to have regular check-ups to assess your oral health condition. This will allow our dentists to detect problems at an early stage, resulting in a less invasive treatment and ultimately saving you more time and money in the long run
