Sleep Dentistry in North Fremantle

If you experience dental anxiety, our Perth dental clinic can help you feel relaxed and at ease with our sleep dentistry options. We offer several different types of sedation at our Fremantle clinic. Our sedation dentistry allows you to receive the treatment you need without the fear and anxiety you might usually experience. If you have been letting dental anxiety prevent you from getting the dental care you desire, call us to discuss our sleep dentistry options.

IV Sedation Dentistry in North Fremantle

At our Fremantle Clinic, we provide intravenous sedation to ensure a calm and relaxed experience during your dental treatment. Also referred to as twilight dentistry or conscious sedation, it involves administering sedative medication directly into the bloodstream through a vein. The level of sedation can be adjusted as required, ranging from mild drowsiness to deeper sedation for minimal recollection of the procedure. 

How Does IV Sedation Work?

A trained specialist administers IV sedation to ensure your safety and comfort. Before initiation, our dentists will conduct a comprehensive patient assessment to evaluate your medical history and identify contraindications. We will detail the specifics of IV sedation and its potential effects, obtaining a written form of consent before proceeding. 

Before your dental procedure, a licensed sedation specialist will insert a fine needle into a vein in your hand or arm, connected to a tube, delivering the sedative directly into your bloodstream. Your vital signs, such as your pulse, heart rate, blood pressure, and oxygen levels, will be continuously monitored to maintain safety and ensure no adverse reaction. You may feel a bit drowsy after the procedure. However, the effects gradually wear off post-procedure. Arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you 12 hours post-IV sedation.

Who Can Get IV Sedation Dentistry

IV sedation may be suitable for patients who are in good health but struggle with dental anxiety. Other reasons you may need IV sedation include:

  • Fear of dental instruments
  • Dental phobia or nerves 
  • Low pain tolerance 
  • Extensive dental work 

Our caring dentists will evaluate your health and assess your needs, helping you decide on the right sedation option. With a focus on minimally invasive treatments with the least amount of stress, pain or nerves, we aim to provide personalised care centred around your needs and peace of mind.

After not being to a dentist in many years, I tried to research dentists in my local area and came across the amazing reviews for Superior Smiles and decided to book an appointment with Dr. Rani. I was so happy with the service I received- all the staff were extremely friendly and professional. I felt like I was in very good hands with Dr. Rani, who talked me through every stage of the appointment step by step, in a clear and gentle manner. I have already booked my next appointment to have some minor work done, as I am extremely happy to return to this dentist. Thank you Dr. Rani and team 🙂

After experiencing terrible episode with dentist many years ago, I have always kept a wide berth and only go when I am in extreme pain. Had my first visit with Dr Rani and she was just wonderful, explained everything as she was going I was made aware of cost and given the option to proceed. Was very caring and I had no pain what so ever , I still have a couple of more visits to go however no more fear and for the first time in many years had experience a comfortable time at the dentist. For people who have a morbid fear I can assure you it will be gone after you experience a visit with Dr Rani staff are also wonderful, I will follow up with the six monthly check ups as required without hesitation. Highly recommend this practice for people who are experiencing anxiety
