Say goodbye to
dental phobia with
sedation dentistry

Sedation Dentistry in Dubai

At Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic, we offer unparalleled sedation dentistry techniques to help anxious patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental treatments.
A lot of people would rather endure the torment of a toothache than step foot in a dental clinic. For those who avoid dentists, sedation dentistry offers a painless dental treatment that can take most of their anxiety away.
Sedation treatments can be used for simple tooth cleaning down to the most invasive of dental procedures.

Sedation is ideal for patients whose behavioural problems make it impossible for the dentist to carry out procedures in treatment or surgeries.

Some medications may even put you into a deep sleep and not feel the pain. Although, most patients are usually awake during sedation, with the exception of those put under general anaesthesia.

It can also be used for children who cannot control their movements to make them relaxed during dental procedures.

Who can benefit from sedation dentistry

Types of Sedation

Inhalation Sedation

A conscious form of sedation that commonly known as “laughing gas” to help you relax. It is mild enough to keep a patient conscious and strong enough to suppress pain during treatments. This is the only form of sedation where you may be able to drive yourself home after your dental visit.

Oral Sedation

Delivered by mouth (pills) to calm and relax patients. Oral sedative medications are usually given the night before or half an hour before dental procedures depending on the severity of your anxiety. Depending on the dose, this can range from minimal (awake but relaxed) to moderate sedation (words are slurred, and some may not remember the entirety of the procedure.

General Anaesthesia

Allows dentists to work on unconscious patients for treatments that are particularly painful, difficult and lengthy. It is also ideal for patients whose behavioural problems make it impossible for the dentist to carry out procedures in treatments or surgeries.
We will help you decide the type of sedation that’s right for you. Your dental procedure, overall health, history of allergies, anxiety levels will all determine the best approach in your case.

GOT QUESTIONS, CHECK FAQ

Dental sedation costs vary according to the method used and the treatment duration.

During dental sedation, medication is administered to the patient prior to and during a dental procedure to calm them and make them more comfortable. It includes a range of different techniques depending on the individual needs of the patient and levels of anxiety involved.
It is a great option for patients who have dental anxiety or have to go through long-lasting procedures that require them to sit still for hours at a time.
Children are especially good candidates for sedation dentistry because they often cannot stay still for a long time during the needed treatment, and it is considered safe.

The amount of time it takes for the effects of dental sedation to wear off depends on the form of sedation used, the dose administered, the duration of treatment, and the ability of the body to recover. The dental specialist carefully plans and administers the right amount of sedative for your situation. 
While inhalation sedation (laughing gas) wears off quickly — minutes after inhalation stops — oral and IV sedation take at least 1-2 hours to wear off and sometimes even longer. Under these forms of medication, you cannot be easily awakened until the effects of the sedation wear off.
Regular oral hygiene sessions do not just give your teeth a thorough cleanse but can also detect and pre-empt many health problems. Some symptoms of medical conditions can be identified early on if you have a regular oral and dental check-up.
