Sleep Dentistry Melbourne

At The Smile Designer Dental Studio in Melbourne, we offer Sleep Dentistry to help relieve your dental anxiety and overcome any dental fear.

Our well-located dental studio is on the border of Thornbury and South Preston, and is easily accessible from surrounding suburbs like Brunswick, Northcote and Heidelberg.

Sedation Sleep Dentistry In Melbourne

Sedation sleep dentistry is perfect for when you need a complicated or nerve-wracking procedure done, but you aren’t too comfortable with the process. At The Smile Designer, we utilise the latest technology to bring you high-quality sleep dentistry and sedation dentistry in Melbourne. Sedation dentistry allows for a more pain-free and quicker experience as you’re put to sleep while the procedure takes place – ensuring that you don’t feel any pressure and wake up to your treatment fully completed.

We understand that past experiences may be an issue when it comes to dental procedures. General anxieties and fears may be sparked when needing to undergo a complicated dental treatment, and therefore, we offer reliable sedation sleep dentistry for patients who need it most. Sedation dentistry is tailored towards the individual as well as the treatment is completed. The method of administration is personalised, which means you will receive a level of sedation dentistry that will guarantee a comfortable, stress-free dental experience.

Although sedation dentistry and sleep dentistry are extremely similar, there are small differences between the two and how they work.

Sedation Dentistry – Sedation dentistry refers to the administration of medications that cause deep relaxation and drowsiness. The patient will not go to sleep, but instead, will feel extremely relaxed. This means that they will be awake throughout the entire procedure, however, won’t feel any anxiety over it and in some cases, won’t actually remember it. Sedation dentistry is perfect for when you don’t want to be put to sleep but want to alleviate some of the worries and stresses that come hand in hand with a complex dental procedure or operation.

Sleep Dentistry – Sleep dentistry is the alternative to sedation dentistry and is when the patient is put to sleep under general anaesthesia. Usually, sleep dentistry is utilised in procedures that are longer and much more complicated or for patients who have extreme cases of anxiety.

At The Smile Designer, our professional team of dentists will help you understand the difference between sleep dentistry and sedation dentistry and will determine which pathway is the right option for you. For more information on sedation sleep dentistry, contact our experts today.
