7 Reasons To Consider Sleep Dentistry
Coburg Dental Group has been a leader in sleep dentistry Melbourne for the provision of dental treatment while you are asleep or sedated, for over 50 years.
We provide this service in our state-of-the-art facility with our visiting medically qualified specialist anaesthetist using the very best of equipment backed up by a very experienced anaesthetic nurse, and our dental team who have been highly trained, dedicated and motivated to provide the very best of service to our patients. If required, we can also provide this service in a private hospital environment.
With sleep dentistry, we can sedate or put our patients fully to sleep in a safe and controlled manner taking the patients concerns into consideration. There are several reasons or situations where a patient would consider sleep dentistry as an alternative to staying awake during dental procedures.
1. Patients who fear dental treatment or have a fear of the needle or drill.
2. Patients who don’t like the feeling of instruments and hands in their mouth and have a feeling similar to claustrophobia.
3. Patients who have highly sensitive teeth and cannot tolerate the cold air or water spray which is required when drilling teeth
4. Patients who have a strong gag reflex and feel like they may vomit if water collects at the back of the mouth or if instruments touch the roof or the mouth or tongue.
5. Patients who are unable to sit still in the dental chair such as unco-operative children or adults with certain medical conditions or disabilities.
6. Patients who require a lot of dental work or complex dental procedures such as the removal of several teeth or wisdom teeth or the placement of multiple implants. Some patients prefer to be asleep to have their treatment done quicker.
7. Patients who have a true allergy to local anaesthetics or local anaesthetics don’t work properly.
The treatments which we can provide encompass all the various facets of dentistry including all implant treatments such as All-On-4 â and its variations, removal of teeth including wisdom teeth, smile enhancements, fillings, crowns, bridges, veneers, orthodontics, oral surgery, treatment of tongue tie and lip tie, treatment of gum inflammation and infections, tooth whitening and root canal treatments.
