To make your dental appointment more comfortable, Cronulla Beach Dental offers twilight sedation.

This involves a qualified medical doctor administering medication that keeps you in a happy place and makes an hour seem like 5 minutes.

It is safe, reliable and used with more complex procedures such as dental implant placement, complex restorative work, periodontal cleans and wisdom teeth extractions. It is particularly useful in patients with a dental phobia.

It is also affordable – after claiming a Medicare rebate, the average out-of-pocket expense for twilight sedation is $380.

The sedation doctor is available every fortnight on a Friday.
