At Smart Smiles, we understand that dentistry is not easy for many of our patients. Whether you have a gag reflex, are simply nervous or completely terrified, we can help. We will let you take things at your pace, so you feel in control, and if you feel you need an additional helping hand, we can offer intravenous sedation provided by an experienced seditionist, Dr Craig Malloire.
The sedation we use is intravenous or IV sedation. The sedative is delivered in a controlled way so that you feel relaxed during the dental treatment. You remain awake and aware while receiving the sedation, but you will experience a deep sensation of peace and relaxation, while the team work on your teeth.
Sedation is suitable for providing all treatments, from simple to complicated extractions, fillings, crowns and implants. Our team of dentists and nurses are trained to deliver sedation and will make sure you are safe and comfortable at all times during your visit.
Don't let your fear of the dentist stop you from looking after your teeth.
How will I feel?
IV Sedation induces a sleepy state of deep relaxation and a feeling of not being bothered by what’s going on. You may not remember much about your treatment at all.
Is it safe?
Yes it is completely safe. At Smart Smiles you will be looked after by our caring and experienced team, who will answer all your concerns in a caring and understanding manner.
