Sedation Options

Our compassionate team understands the fear people may feel when visiting the dentist.

We have a lot of experience in dealing with new patients who don’t love going to the dentist. Whether this is because of a past experience or general anxiety, we’re here to help you.

We love building your confidence surrounding dental visits and calming your fears. We have also helped many patients receive the important dental care they need through sleep dentistry.

At Hills Dental Group, we can provide treatment under nitrous oxide sedation (happy gas). This involves the combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen gases to produce a feeling of relaxation and comfort during treatment. It is safe and the effects wear off quickly after the procedure.

If you suffer from severe dental-related anxiety or are having several treatments at once, we also offer IV sedation. It allows you to undergo your treatment in a dream-like state, with little to no recollection of the procedure. provided by an experienced medical practitioner with appropriate recovery care and supervision.

IV sedation can be performed in the dental surgery. This is unlike a general anaesthetic that needs to be performed in a hospital or day surgery. During IV sedation, sedation medications get administered directly into your bloodstream.

At Hills Dental Group, IV sedation is provided by an experienced medical practitioner. You must plan for dental treatment under intravenous sedation. You will need driving to and from your appointment and for someone to stay with you that night.

Don’t let your fear stand in the way of achieving good oral health.
