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.
Yes we do, we can offer the following options to our patients:
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
Dr Hocek still operates a list at both hospitals regularly, so if you would like to
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.
