Many of us are anxious or even have a fear of dentists. With dentistry while you sleep (also known as sleep dentistry or sedation dentistry), you can be under a general anaesthetic while your dentist administers their treatment on you. Relaxing, and pain free.
Who Can Have Dentistry While You Sleep?
Anyone who would like dentistry while you sleep can choose this option.
There are multiple reasons why some patients have a fear of dental treatment, and these include sensitive and painful teeth, a complex dental circumstance, past traumatic dental procedures, and of course a general phobia of going to the dentist.
Unfortunately what we see is that people will neglect their ongoing dental treatment and maintenance because the fear of going to see your dentist is too great.
Sleep dentistry while you are sedated is the perfect way to finally get your dental treatment undertaken.
What is Dentistry While You Sleep?
When we undertake dentistry while you sleep, a use of a general anaesthetic is administered to the patient. This ensures that the patient can be ‘asleep’ while the dentist can go about treating them.
The anaesthetic is administered by a fully qualified anaesthetist, who will monitor the patient throughout the entire dental treatment.
