Sleep Dental Clinics and Sedation can help anxious patients
Having dental treatment while you are asleep is known as Sleep Dentistry and may also be referred to as Dental Sedation, Sleep Sedation, Twilight Sedation and Sedation Dentistry involves IV sedation and anaesthesia to induce sleep and reduce pain, awareness and recollection during dental procedures.
In this way, it alleviates the fear, anxiety and discomfort that may often be associated with general and paediatric dentistry.
Sedation dentistry allows patients to feel at ease and comfortable when undergoing treatment. Some dental patients are apprehensive and anxious when they are having treatment. We understand that this may be a deterrent for many patients. By easily accommodating our patients with sedation, patients can complete their treatment plans with confidence.
In-chair professional sedation services
For patients wanting to have all treatment performed at the dental practice, we regularly perform surgical procedures in the dental chair using sedation and sleep dentistry techniques. This will make your dental treatment nice and smooth.
No procedure is too small for this process. If you are a patient who is too anxious to have a dental clean, then sedation can definitely help you.
The most common procedures performed under dental sedation are:
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- Tooth extractions
However, any dental procedure can be performed.
General anaesthetic at the private hospital
Some patients prefer to be completely under for surgical procedures, and we are pleased to be able to offer such an option. We also have highly complex cases where we recommend treatment to be completed under general anaesthetic.
General anaesthetic facilities are available at Brisbane, allowing us to deliver quality dental surgery – including full arch rehab (we perform this weekly) and implants almost every day!
Patients can then also receive the amazing aftercare that the lovely nurses at Brisbane Waters Private Hospital provide.
If you have been putting off dental treatment because you are anxious or worried about pain, don’t be. We have the ideal solution to suit your individual requirements and ensure your experience is as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
