Sedation

Some of our patients say, “If only I could go to sleep, then wake up and it would all be over”. If you feel anxious about having implant treatment, Ballarat Implant Centre’s safe sedation might be the perfect solution for you. For implant dentistry sometimes we will recommend that the procedure is performed under IV sedation but many procedures can be performed easily under only local anaesthetic, even for anxious patients. Where sedation is advised or requested, we will explain the process in detail so that you feel confident and comfortable about your treatment.

All our sedation procedures are performed by visiting qualified sedationists or anaesthetists and you will be required to fill out detailed Medical questionnaires and in many occasions attend for a separate Medical Consultation with the specialist to confirm that you are a suitable candidate for sedation.
