Sedation Dentistry

If you have been delaying a dental procedure due to nerves and anxiety, you can rest easy as we offer inhalation sedation for our patients, both adult and children.

Plainland Dental is proud to be professionally certified to provide inhalation sedation, a light anaesthetic, that can ease patient’s anxiety and allows you to be comfortable and relaxed throughout dental treatment.

If you have anxiety about visiting the dentist, inhalation sedation might be right for you. Book an appointment to talk to our experienced dentists about sedation dentistry.

If you experience dental anxiety, sedation dentistry is ideal as it allows you to remain at ease throughout dental treatment. Your dentist can also work more efficiently as you are relaxed and may be able to complete multiple treatments in a single appointment rather than spacing them out for your comfort.

How does inhalation sedation work?

Inhalation sedation is a stress free process. The patient wears a small nose piece and a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide, aka ‘happy or laughing gas’, is administered. Within minutes you should feel more relaxed. Nitrous oxide has a pleasant odour, and the unobtrusive nose piece allows you to breathe normally.

The gas is a safe, effective treatment, the effects dissipate within minutes of being stopped. This allows your dentist to easily increase or decrease the dosage depending on the level of sedation you are comfortable with.

Is inhalation sedation safe?

After inhalation sedation you won’t experience any ‘groggy’ side effects after the procedure. In fact, it’s ok to safely drive home after having nitrous oxide as the gas leaves your body within three to five minutes.

If you have anxiety about visiting the dentist, inhalation sedation might be right for you. Book an appointment to talk to our experienced dentists about sedation dentistry.

On this occasion the dentist Natalie was very good, explained clearly why specialist surgery was required. The standout however, was Bec the admin. Officer, who went over and above to get me an urgent appt. the next day. She was amazing & I very much appreciated her assistance.

I've just called to make an appoint with Dr Kapil and have learnt he is no longer doing general dental work. Sadly after 20 years I need to find a new dentist. He will be hard to replace....
