Sleep Dentistry for Bayswater, Boronia, and the Knox City Area
The procedure to induce an unconscious state is performed with IV sedation. Our sedationist is specially trained in sleep dentistry. It all takes place in a familiar and comfortable dental setting at our clinic located at Mountain Highway in Bayswater. Within an hour of the procedure, after any dental work has been performed, most patients are fine to leave the clinic on their own to show the world their whiter and brighter smiles.
What are the Benefits?
Anxiety Removal – As the patients sleep soundly during the dental procedure, they are completely unaware of the sights, odours and sounds surrounding them. It alleviates the fear, anxiety and discomfort and negates the possibility of them having a panic attack during the procedure.
Comfort and Safety – Patients are relieved of the discomfort associated with long and complex dental procedures. Nobody likes to keep his or her mouth open without swallowing for hours on end. We don’t either! Sleep dentistry allows longer dental operations to be completed quickly and easily with minimal discomfort to the patient.
Time Effectiveness – Under anaesthetic, patients can undergo several or all the necessary dental treatments they require in a single session. They don’t even have to endure any pain as they are not in a conscious state! This can be done instead of multiple arduous sessions that are often required for multiple treatments.
Dental work on a sedated patient can also often be performed faster than on a conscious patient as the client will not be wriggling around or moving due to the discomfort felt during the session.
