Service Overview

LN Dental Centre offers different levels of sedation dentistry, including oral and IV sedation for people who have spent years away from the dentist because of their anxiety. This type of unease may be rooted in a past event that ended badly, insecurity about the state of their oral health, or it may be more difficult to pin down.

In any case, anxiety no longer has to keep you away from the dentist with the help of sedation dentistry. Our compassionate dentists in Chester Hill, NSW are always gentle, but they understand when you need a little extra reassurance.

Oral Sedation

Oral sedation is a pill you take an hour or so before your treatment or procedure. Typically, you can respond to directives while under the influence of the medication, but you may not remember your procedure afterwards. With this option, you need a friend or family member to drive you to and from our dental surgery.

IV Sedation

IV sedation in LN Dental Centre, Chester Hill, NSW—sometimes called sleep dentistry—is administered through an IV. With this option, you will sleep through your procedure and wake up after the effects have worn off.

Your dentist in LN Dental Centre, Chester Hill, NSW takes a thorough health history—including a list of current medications—to make sure IV sedation is a safe option for you. If it is a good choice based on your current situation, we plan your procedure.

IV sedation calls for medication delivered intravenously. During your treatment, Dr. Dong – IV s monitors your vitals as you rest and enjoy oblivion. Meanwhile, your dentist provides the treatment you need to maintain optimal oral health or an enhanced smile.

IV sedation is ideal for patients undergoing multiple treatments, invasive procedures, and even cosmetic dentistry in Chester Hill, NSW.

When you wake up, you will feel groggy and need transport home from your dental surgery. We recommend resting for the remainder of the day and not making any serious decisions until the sedation has worn off completely. Typically, we suggest waiting a full day.

No matter the option you choose, it is important that you not make any serious decisions on the day of your dental treatment. Additionally, do not drive or operate any machinery on this day.

Why IV Sedation Dentistry in LN Dental Centre, Chester Hill?

Your dentist wants you to feel at ease, which is why we offer IV sedation. With this option, you will not recall your dental treatment. And this is really the best course for patients who suffer from dental anxiety. When there is nothing to remember, there is nothing to keep you awake the night before and nothing to stress about.

Another reason we offer sedation dentistry is that we never want dental phobia preventing dental treatment. We want our patients to enjoy a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums. IV sedation makes this possible for patients who might otherwise skip dental care.

After Your Dental Procedure

When sedation wears off—and depending on your procedure—you may have mild swelling or discomfort. Typically, you can remedy this with a pain reliever purchased in your local shop.

In some cases, your dentist may provide more specific instructions. For example, if you’ve had a tooth pulled. We recommend eating soft foods for the rest of the day, chewing on the opposite side, not drinking through a straw or smoking for 24 hours after the extraction.
