Sedation Dentistry Geelong

Do You Have A Fear Of Going To The Dentist?

Trust us to care for you

We understand that dental anxiety is a common concern. According to an Australian study, approximately 16% of adults and 10% of children experience dental fear and anxiety. This apprehension can arise from various factors, including a fear of pain, previous negative experiences, feeling embarrassed about oral health, or simply feeling out of control in the dental chair.

Unfortunately, dental anxiety often leads to avoidance or delays in dental visits, which can have serious consequences for your oral health. Untreated dental issues can worsen over time, leading to more extensive and costly treatments down the line.

When fear starts to interfere with your oral health, sleep dentistry can help. 

At Dental Hub Geelong, your comfort is our top priority along with premium quality care. Today’s advancements in dentistry mean most treatments cause very little discomfort, but when that isn’t enough, we can offer sleep dentistry to calm anxious patients.

Our approach includes a personalised treatment plan, gentle care, and communication support to make your visit stress-free. We offer comfortable amenities, a soothing atmosphere, as we strive to create a positive dental experience for you.

What is Sedation Dentistry?

Sedation dentistry at our North Geelong office involves nitrous oxide sedation. Nitrous oxide sedation, or happy gas, is a blend of inhalation sedatives such as oxygen and nitrous oxide to make you feel calm and relaxed during treatments. With happy gas, you will stay awake and responsive during the whole process and you can control the amount of sedation you need.

We understand that dental appointments can be stressful and uncomfortable, which is why our sedation dentistry is designed to minimise any potential unease you may experience during or after your visit. Our advanced medical devices and vigilant monitoring systems ensure that your vital signs are continuously tracked.

At Dental Hub Geelong, sedation dentistry helps patients approach oral health with confidence, knowing they’re in experienced hands.

What are the benefits of sedation dentistry?

Sedation dentistry offers:
  • Safety – it is an established practice that has been done for years
  • Comfort – patients will be relaxed and pain-free throughout the procedure
  • An amnesiac effect – patients rarely remember the procedure (if preferred)
  • Convenience – a range of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures can be done right in our clinic
  • A smoother recovery – patients are often able to go home 30 minutes after their treatment
  • Affordability – this type of treatment is inexpensive

Whether you’re time-poor or just dislike dental procedures, sleep dentistry is the perfect option to help you get the smile you have always wanted.

What is Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

Nitrous Oxide (Happy Gas)

Nitrous Oxide, or Happy Gas, is a safe and effective sedative agent used to help you relax during dental procedures. It is administered through a small mask that fits over your nose, allowing you to breathe in a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen. This gentle sedation induces a calming sensation which will make you feel at ease without rendering you unconscious. Happy gas is also great for children.

Nitrous oxide is a mild level of sedation which is ideal for less intensive treatments or for those with mild anxiety. You will remain conscious and responsive throughout the procedure with the effects of happy gas kicking in shortly after administration.

Once the procedure is complete and the nitrous oxide is turned off, its effects wear off quickly, letting you get back to your day without feeling groggy.

Our experienced dental team in North Geelong can adjust the level of sedation to meet your specific needs to ensure your safety and comfort.
