& Skills

Advanced Tools & Skills

We have some of the most advanced dental tools available. Combining this with staff who are constantly refining their skills and you have a recipe for the perfect smile.
Nitrous Oxide
Nitrous oxide or ‘Happy Gas’ is a common method of making our patients feel more relaxed and is suitable to those who are mildly anxious. Rather than being nearly asleep for the procedure, Happy Gas allows patients to have a reduction in sensation while still being awake.
During the procedure, the doctor can adjust the setting and increase/decrease the volume of gas to ensure a comfortable experience.
This method of sedation is particularly beneficial for children and for those who need a little help relaxing so they don’t feel as tense during treatment.
After completing the treatment under nitrous oxide, the doctor will ensure you feel back to normal and not lightheaded. It is safe to resume daily activities after this type of sedation.
If you would like to find out if nitrous oxide is an option for you, please call our staff on (08) 72311816.
IV Sedation
IV Sedation (also known as Twilight Sedation) is an excellent option for those patients experiencing moderate-severe dental anxiety. The sedation is performed at our practice and is a convenient way for patients to have treatment done who don’t want to be fully conscious for the procedure. The visiting doctor will insert a needle into your hand or arm and administer the medication that will send you into a light sleep or relaxed state. After having IV sedation, most patients do not remember the procedure at all.
Most treatments can be performed under IV sedation including dental implants, wisdom teeth extractions as well as fillings, crowns, hygiene treatments and other minor surgery. We require all patients undergoing sedation to be accompanied by a family member or friend when they leave our practice. Patients can resume normal daily duties the following day.
If you would like to find out if IV sedation is an option for you, please book online by selecting IV Sedation/ Sleep Dentistry Consultation our call our staff on (08) 72311816.
Oral Sedation
Oral sedation, usually in the form of tablets, can be suitable for mild-moderately anxious patients. Depending on the type of dental treatment required and the level of anxiety, our doctors will prescribe the medicine best suited for each patient. You do not need to visit your medical doctor to access this service – our doctors will be able to prescribe this medication for you. If you would like to find out if oral sedation is an option for you please contact our staff and our dentists will be able to discuss the options with you during your initial consultation.

Roxanne Starkey
The ladies are absolutely fantastic, I am terrified of dentists from a previous experience. I needed a wisdom tooth removed this was my first ever tooth extraction and I was terrified but these ladies made me feel so calm and explained everything to me before, through and after the process and it was entirely pain free. I highly recommend the team at Ocean View Dental
Steve Fryar
I had to have an emergency extraction and they accommodated me superbly. I am a very nervous dental patient at best but found their re-assurance fantastic at putting me at ease.
I was happy with the service I received from Anna and Tayla. They made me feel comfortable. Friendly, efficient and clean surgery. I was in pain and they saw me within a couple of hours.
Kevan Morgan
Arranged an online booking for a very sore toothache. Reception process was excellent and Anna was really informative regarding the problem I had and clearly explained the issues. An excellent caring & competent clinician which was very reassuring. Would thoroughly recommend this practice.

Kelly Gosden
Kimberley and the staff at Ocean View Dental Surgery are very kind, caring and professional. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting a great team to look after your dental needs.
Tania Aish
Amazing really caring practice. I had an awfully painful toothache and the got me in within 5 mins of me calling and stayed open after closing just to accommodate me. Their first priority was to get me out of pain. The young ladies at this practice were amazing and go above and beyond for their patients. I’ve already recommended this dentist to several of my friends. Hands down best customer experience I’ve had in a long time. Keep up the good work Oceanview, I can see why you were highly recommended on the Peninsula Facebook page
Eileen Ordish
I have been using Oceanview dental for quite some time. Just wish that I had found them much earlier. The work that Anna has done for me is amazing and the care given knowing that I have other health issues. I cannot speak too highly of her and the staff. I would recommend them to everyone. ????????????????????????

Dental sedation is charged by the amount of time. The fee for full IV sedation is usually charged per hour. And there is an additional fee per 15 minute increment after the first hour. The patient is charged only for the time they are actually put to sleep.

Sedation dentistry can relax you and ease your pain, but the sedatives could also put more of a hurting on your wallet than other types of dental procedures. Check with your insurance to see whether they will cover sedation during your procedures. Even if you do have to pay out of pocket, the trade-off can be worth it.

Individuals who suffer from dental anxiety or dental phobia are considered candidates for sedation dentistry. 

But sedation options will be discussed during any surgical treatment.

You do not feel pain with sedation dentistry. Our dentists use a combination of sedation and anesthetic to keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout your procedure. Many patients leave our practice with little to no memory of their treatment.
