Sleep Dentistry Melbourne
The Centre for Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry is a purpose-built dental and surgical facility that offers sleep dentistry under the medical supervision of specialist anesthetists trained in Anesthesia and Intensive care.
Sleep dentistry or sedation dentistry is a form of dental sedation administered intravenously that induces a deeply relaxing sleep state combined with pain relief during your entire dental procedure.
Being sedated with sleep dentistry, you will feel very calm and intensely relaxed, completely unaware of the dental treatment being performed. You will experience no pain, discomfort or fear during the course of your treatment and when it’s all over, you will have no memory of the procedure you just had. You will feel as if you simply had a good, deep sleep.
While Sleep Dentistry is a safe sedation technique, a trained medical anesthetist is present at all times to strictly monitor the sedation process.
Our dental clinic is appointed with state of the art safety and monitoring equipment, along with highly experienced and caring staff to make sure you have a safe and comfortable experience.
Sedation dentistry at our centre in Melbourne’s Burwood East, allows your treating dentist access to all his usual resources, making your dental treatment also more efficient. There is no need for hospitalization or extended periods of recovery.
You will be ready to go home after a short recovery period of about an hour after your dental procedure. A responsible adult will need to accompany you home and stay with you for the rest of the day and overnight as the sedative effects wear off.
Sedation dentistry is available for a wide range of dental treatments or oral surgical procedures in adults and children, and particularly for individuals with extreme dental phobia or who suffer from involuntary muscle movements such as spasms, as well as patients with cognitive disabilities.
