Does the thought of a visit to the dentist cause you anxiety? It’s a common problem, but there’s a simple solution: sleep dentistry.
Don’t let fear prevent you from receiving necessary dental treatment. Many procedures are able to be completed while you are asleep. Then, after you’ve slept soundly through your dental work, you can simply wake up with a beautiful new smile.
What is Sleep Dentistry?
Sleep Dentistry is a great option for people with a fear of going to the dentist. It allows patients to be sedated during treatment, removing any discomfort associated with dental procedures.
The drugs used in sleep dentistry create a state of deep relaxation and leave recipients with little recollection of their time spent in the dentist’s chair.
Who is Sleep Dentistry for?
Sleep dentistry is not only for people who suffer from a phobia or anxiety related to dental treatment. It can also be used for patients who:
- require multiple or complex procedures
- have difficulty achieving the desired effects of local anaesthetic even with multiple injections
- experience a strong gag reflex during dental treatments
If the thought of undergoing dental treatment is holding you back from visiting the dentist, sleep dentistry could offer the perfect solution.
When can Sleep Dentistry be Administered?
Many procedures can be administered using sleep dentistry, including multiple fillings, dental implants, root canal therapy, wisdom tooth removal and paediatric dentistry. It is particularly popular for patients who require complex treatments or longer appointments.
If you think you might want or need sleep therapy, but aren’t sure if you would qualify, reach out to our quality team of medical professionals and we can come up with a plan that’s right for you.
