What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry is performed for dental procedures for anxious patients by administering medications to help them relax. Many patients avoid getting the required dental help because of their fear of the dentist. Sedation dentistry is performed to ensure that nervous patients enjoy healthy mouths and teeth.

What are the types of dental sedation?

The different types of dental sedation are; inhalation sedation, for patients requiring mild sedation also called anxiolysis; oral sedation, by asking patients to swallow a pill; TENS, using electrical impulses to numb the area; topical anaesthesia, using a swab to numb the area; or intra-venous sedation, for patients requiring moderate sedation and general anaesthesia for patients requiring deep sedation. General anaesthesia is used for patients only in a hospital and not in a dentist chair.

Is Sedation Dentistry painful?

Oral sedation, inhalation sedation, TENS and topical sedation are not painful. Intra-venous sedation and general anaesthesia need to be injected and patients may feel pain when the sedative is injected.

When can I travel by air after Sedation Dentistry?

Patients should travel by air two days after sedation dentistry. They should take the advice of their dentist before embarking on their journey.   

How long does recovery after Sedation Dentistry take?

Recovery from dental sedation takes between 40 to 90 minutes. Recovery depends on the type of sedation administered.  

What after care is required after Sedation Dentistry?

Patients should rest for at least three hours after sedation dentistry. They should not eat for at least four hours, until the anaesthesia wears off. They should take all prescribed medications correctly. They should resume work at least one day after sedation dentistry. They should not smoke or drink alcohol for at least two days after sedation dentistry. They should follow all dietary prescriptions given by their dentist correctly.

The treatment I received throughout was superbAndrea, South Africa, 04 05 23

I had the best treatments ever! Had to have 4 wisdom teeth removed of which 2 were impacted. The two were growing horizontally and were close to the nerves which could cause paralysis should anything go wrong. Plus,I had constant cysts in my mouth! No dentist wanted to extract it due to the risk but Dr Natha was up for the challenge. I was extremely nervous but Dr Natha and his assistant put me totally at ease. The treatment I received throughout was superb! Thank you Dr Natha and assistant, I will forever be grateful. God bless!

I’m very happy with the work they doLeann, South Africa, 29 08 18

Big Red Tooth Dental has been my family dentist for around 7 years now. I’ve had root canals, fillings as well as cleanings done at this clinic. There’s nothing pleasant about a visit to the dentist, but they are quite good. I’ve been recommending them to others. I’m very happy with the work they do. Not sure what my emergency dentist appointment cost, because the medical aid covered everything. Even though they are good, I don’t give anyone a 5/5. There’s always room for improvement.
