Conscious Sedation

Feeling apprehensive about dental visits? Conscious sedation has helped even the most anxious patients to feel at ease. Typically taken 1 - 2 hours before an appointment, the medication facilitates comfortable completion of your dental care. Although you will still be awake, patients are typical groggy and need to arrange transportation to and from the office.

Dr Toohey has completed certified training in sedation and has been providing this service for 15 years now.

For many individuals, simply watching a DVD or favourite TV program provides surprisingly adequate distraction, blocks out the sounds, and passes the time quickly.

Please let us know if you feel this service may be of help. We will be happy to discuss your suitability.
