With sedation dentistry you can get the treatment you need without the pain


If you are avoiding dental treatment because of the thought of potential pain, now you no longer need to worry! With the advancement of dental technology we can now offer anxious patients sedation dentistry.

IV Sedation dentistry gives massive relief from anxiety and leaves you with no memory of the procedure.

More importantly, it is a safe and effective method of sedation.

At Evans Dental on the Gold Coast we appreciate that many people fear going to the dentist…

It is our aim that our patients are provided with an enjoyable, personal and memorable experience as possible. Our team of caring dental professionals takes pleasure in offering our patients the latest in quality dental treatments in a safe, friendly environment.

IV Sedation…

  • IV sedation is injected into the arm during a dental procedure. 
  • During IV sedation you are conscious, however you will feel really relaxed and the whole process will be noticeably less painful. 
  • An added bonus is that it will feel as though the procedure took no time at all.

Your safety…

Under the careful supervision of a trained dentist IV sedation is extremely safe, however it is important to let your dentist know of any preexisting medical conditions, allergies or current medication as these can affect the IV dosage.

IV Sedation is perfect for Cosmetic Dentistry…

If you are unhappy with your smile we at Evans Dental on the Gold Coast can help improve the overall look of your mouth, which can in-turn improve your self-image and improve your overall health.

Dental Implants:

It is essential for the overall health of your mouth to replace lost teeth. If gaps in the mouth are left alone, the teeth on either side of the gap will attempt to cover it. Also, tooth loss also causes bone where the roots were to dissolve, adversely affecting your jawbone. With IV sedation getting those much needed dental implants will now seem a less daunting task.

Crowns and Bridges:

Crowns and Bridges can restore your smile. Crowns are designed to increase or restore the strength and durability of the tooth. Crowns also enhance the aesthetics and function of your teeth and are a safe and effective option for repairing your smile. Bridges allow the dentist to replace missing teeth with false teeth by using an implant or denture. Although IV sedation may not be used for a crown it can be used for the insertion of an implant.

Other forms of sedation…

There are two other forms of sedation that can be utilised:

Nitrous oxide:

Nitrous oxide, or more commonly known as laughing gas, is a milder form of sedation than IV sedation. Whereas IV is intravenous, laughing gas is inhaled with oxygen: it is a mild sedative and leaves the patient deeply relaxed. If a patient has an issue with needles, it may be possible to administer the laughing gas before the needle.

General anaesthetic:

This is the one that very rarely is used in dentistry. If it is, the procedure would have to be extreme, no cosmetic surgery or dental implant would require this form of sedation. If, however, it were to be used, it general requires a stay in the hospital.
