Twilight sedation, otherwise known as conscious sedation, is an effective solution for patients who are nervous or fear the dentist. Sedatives administered through an IV gently place patients in a dream-like state, eliminating fear and discomfort often associated with dental treatments.
Our Principal Sedationist, Dr Robert Turnbull, brings his extensive experience to our Gosford dental clinic, offering professional and quality care. Dr Turnbull carefully monitors consciousness levels during your treatment to ensure you remain awake and relaxed.
Is twilight sedation at Gosford Family Dentist right for you?
Fear of dental procedures is more common than you think. Before or during treatment, symptoms of dental fear or anxiety include:
- an increase in body temperature and excessive sweating
- a heightened heart rate or heart palpitations
- visible stress such as fidgeting, shaking, startled reactions or pacing
- fast pace conversations with shortness of breath
If you are known to experience any of these symptoms, twilight sedation might be the perfect solution for you.
Before committing to twilight sedation, you should consider your recommended treatment and your common response to dental procedures. To find out more about twilight sedation and if it’s the right option for you, talk to the team at Gosford Family Dentist on or submit an online enquiry form.
