Having anxiety about going to the dentist is extremely common. Around 15% of people are so afraid of seeing the dentist that they avoid a going at all costs. We understand that the thought of dental work can be frightening, strange noises and sensations can be anxiety provoking and leave people feeling afraid.
Here at the Sydney Implant Institute, our dentists are experienced in treating patients with anxiety, we can offer twilight sedation to help this is administered by a small cannula in the back of your hand and makes long appointments seem like minutes.
This is a great solution for nervous patients as it causes you to relax and also has an amnesic effect which makes the appointments seem short and easy.
We have a couple of medical doctors who come into the practice to perform the sedation, they will give you a receipt on the day that you take to Medicare to claim a rebate.
