Frequent Questions

Read More

I haven’t heard of sleep dentistry before. Is it new?

No. Sleep Dentistry at our Melbourne clinics involves the use of anaesthetics at a level that still allows patients to be responsive. It is used for a range of medical procedures, including endoscopies, bronchoscopies and colonoscopies.

The type of medication and levels used depends entirely on the patient and their treatment. Not all clinics offer sleep dentistry in Melbourne as it is rather a specialized service requiring an extensive range of equipment, anaesthetists and trained staff. Our unique, purpose-built facility allows us to provide this service for a wide range of dental procedures.

Wouldn’t I only choose sleep dentistry for major procedures?

Although we often think of different types of anaesthesia in terms of what treatments they are best suited to, it is perhaps better to think of dental sedation as patient-specific, rather than treatment-specific. IV sedation can be used in combination with other pain and discomfort-reducing medications, depending on the nature of dental procedures being undertaken.

For patients who are nervous at the prospect of relatively minor treatments, sedation can simply allow you to relax and to not remember the procedure once you’re awake. Needle phobics will be asleep and unaware of the use of any needles throughout their treatment. It can also be used in paediatric dentistry to help calm nervous or uncooperative children if deemed appropriate.
