ORAL SEDATION

Sedation Dentistry

PAIN FREE DENTIST IN WELLSFORD, NORTH AUCKLAND - ORAL SEDATION

The technique of Oral Sedation begins about an hour prior to your dental appointment. You will be required to take a sedative pill and after a short period of time you will then become very relaxed. Once you are completely relaxed, we will then commence treatment. After your treatment has been completed, you will awake feeling refreshed and have little or no memory of the procedure.

Oral Sedation is a contemporary technique that is completely safe for patients. Depending on your needs, your Oral Sedation can last between 2 and 6 hours. To ensure your safety, a companion is required to accompany you to & from the practice. You will not be allowed to drive back home by yourself, so we recommend you bring a friend or companion if you wish to have oral sedation.

Here at Wellsford Dental Centre, we believe that our patients deserve the very best always, and we are constantly striving to provide you with every effort to achieve patient comfort during your dental visits with us.

The STA (Single Tooth Anaesthesia) System with its unique Wand is a state-of-the-art device that gives our dentists the opportunity to drastically improve anxiety and give our nervous patients the best dental experience. The STA System can make your visits anxiety-free and more comfortable for you and your family.

With the STA System, our patients do not feel the expected level of discomfort with the injection. And our dentists can achieve numbness of a single tooth area without tongue and lip tissue being affected.

Being afraid of injections can make dental treatment very difficult as
many types of treatment rely on anaesthetic injections to numb the

patient. If the patient is not comfortable receiving injections, it means
that the required treatment can often not be completed. Alternatively, even if the patient can confront their fear, their anxiety and stress levels can also mean that the anaesthetic is not as effective.

To help treat our patients with this fear, our dentists can offer to use
the STA Wand.

WHAT IS THE STA SYSTEM?

Single Tooth Anaesthesia (STA) provides a virtually painless, stress-free alternative to traditional dental anaesthetic via syringe. It has a smallhand piece that looks like a pen, called a Wand. The Wand delivers acomputer-regulated flow of anaesthetic to a specific targeted area,meaning that the injections will be consistent, accurate, and virtuallypainless for the patient every time! Because this flow-rate controldevice injects the anesthesia slowly it ultimately improves our patientcomfort. And directly numbing only the tooth to be treated, a smalllocalised area, means you will not have a numb lip, tounge and cheek toworry about after the treatment. You can return to your day able tosmile, eat and drink normally straight away!
