Dental Sense Midland offer a wide range of options for Wisdom Teeth Removal
At Dental Sense, we have the facilities and expertise to perform routine surgical procedures including complex wisdom teeth removal.
Does Dental Sense Midland have sedation options available?
Yes we do, we can offer the following options to our patients:
- Simple Cases: Extractions in the chair using a local anaesthetic (LA)
- Nervous Patients: Extractions in the chair using a LA and with Nitrous Oxide (Happy/Laughing Gas)
- Complex Cases: Extractions in the chair using a LA and with IV Sedation
- Complex Cases: Extractions in Hospital (St John of God Midland) using a general anaesthetic
General Anaesthetic: Dr Nicole Hocek, our principal dentist, has a special interest in oral
surgery which includes the removal of wisdom teeth. Dr Hocek is credentialed to operate at both Kalgoorlie Regional Hospital and St John of God Midland, so she is able to perform all procedures under a general anaesthetic.
Dental Sense Midland have agreements with the hospital and our regular anaesthetist so there is no gap from either if you are with a major health fund. The only out of pocket cost you will pay is on the dental treatment itself
Intravenous Sedation (IV sedation): is often referred to as sleep dentistry. We have a medical/dental anaesthetist who will perform the sedation, and Dr Hocek will perform the procedure. The anaesthetist will ensure that you are asleep throughout the procedure. This is a great option for those who would like to be asleep but don’t have private health insurance.
Nitrous Oxide (Happy/laughing gas): With nitrous oxide you will still be awake during the procedure, but you will hopefully feel relaxed and comfortable. It is delivered through a small mask over your nose, and the effects wear off almost as soon as the mask is removed.
