Meet The Dental Team


I have now visited Twoth on three different occasion... The first time was to take my son (8 years old) to see Dr Counihan for a braces consultation and my son absolutely loved the entire experience from start to finish. In fact, he was so excited and relaxed about it all he wanted to get started immediately.

The second time around, I went to see Dr Counihan myself for a second opinion and found the experience just as good as my son did

Karin Thyselius

Before I found Dr Neil Counihan I had a long history of dental trauma and sadly I repeatedly was subjected to very poor dentistry. I was scared to let anybody near my mouth and teeth. I had lost hope!

Dr Counihan made me the promise, with the right care I can keep my mouth healthy and definitely keep my teeth for the rest of my life.

And most importantly he made me feel safe and listened to

Dental sedation for children treatment involves the use of medication to help children relax and feel comfortable during dental procedures, ensuring a positive and stress-free experience.

Yes, dental sedation for children is safe when administered by trained professionals experienced in pediatric dentistry. Our team closely monitors vital signs throughout the procedure.

Dental sedation may be administered orally, intranasally, or intravenously. The chosen method will depend on the child’s age, medical history, and the nature of the procedure.

The level of sedation can range from minimal to moderate, depending on the child’s needs and the complexity of the dental treatment. They will remain conscious and responsive.

Dental sedation carries minimal risks, and side effects, if any, are typically mild and temporary. Our pediatric dentist will thoroughly evaluate your child’s health and explain potential risks beforehand.

The duration of dental sedation effects varies depending on the type of sedation used. The child may feel drowsy or groggy for a few hours after the procedure.

Our pediatric dental team will provide detailed instructions regarding fasting, medication administration, and any necessary preoperative evaluations. It’s important to follow these instructions carefully.

In most cases, parents are not allowed in the treatment area during the sedation process for safety reasons. However, our team will ensure that your child is comfortable and well-cared for throughout.

Dental sedation can benefit not only children with dental anxiety but also those with special needs, difficulty cooperating, extensive treatment needs, or a sensitive gag reflex.

Due to the amnesic effects of some sedatives, your child may have little to no recollection of the dental procedure. This helps create a positive experience and reduces future anxiety.
