DENTAL HEALTH WEEK 2017

This year Dental Health Week, which runs from 7 to 13 August, has taken Oral Health For Busy Lives as its theme, with the aim of helping you to appreciate that, no matter how busy you are or where you are in life, it is possible to fit caring for your teeth and gums into an already-overcrowded diary. You may see caring for your teeth and gums as an optional extra, something to be put aside in favour of more pressing issues, but the fact is that it's vitally that you care for your teeth and gums every bit as much as anything else in life.

Throughout the course of Dental Health Week, you will be encouraged to take the time to brush and floss properly - we have some great tips if you're not entirely certain what that entails - and to make booking time with your dentist as great a priority as booking your car in for a service or seeing your hairdresser.

At Hart Dental we offer 3 different types of sedation techniques to help ease the anxiety that comes with dental treatment for some patients.


Oral sedation (Valium) can be prescribed by for suitable candidates and works well for those with low anxiety levels.

Inhalation sedation - commonly known as 'laughing gas' or 'happy gas' - is a relaxation technique used in the practice whilst the patient is receiving treatment; generally for those with medium to high anxiety levels.

Intravenous sedation (IV or twilight sedation) is administered by an anesthetist which induces a state of deep relaxation and heavy sedation. It is a great option for those with high anxiety and elaborate treatment plans, as you will be able to understand and respond to requests from your dentist even whilst heavily sedated and with no recollection.

A comprehensive oral exam is required before booking in any sedation treatment and will give you an opportunity to express your concerns or ask any questions. To book an appointment with one of our friendly dentists call us on 8271 2488.
