At Compass Dental Care, we are fully equipped and have dedicated facilities for IV sedation, or ‘sleep dentistry’. Ideally suited for patients with a high level of anxiety for dental treatment or patients requiring more involved dental procedures such as removal of wisdom teeth. We utilise the services of one of Darwin’s most experienced specialist anaesthetists to conduct and oversee the sedation as safety is of paramount importance.
All of our staff are trained in not only CPR, but medical emergency response. We can deliver sedation services to patients as young as 12 years old and as old as 70. Patients outside of this age range are seen at Darwin Private Hospital or the Darwin Day Surgery under a general anaesthetic if required.
Our surgical suites are spacious enough to accomodate the full array of delivery, monitoring, recovery and safety equipment to ensure the highest standards are met.
From happy gas to oral sedation, full IV sedation with an anaesthetist present to a general anaesthetic, at Compass Dental Care, we have all the bases covered.
