Sleep Dentistry Perth
Do you suffer dental anxiety or dental phobia? Are you worried about going to the dentist?
You are not alone. To help you feel better about your trip to the dentist, at Duncraig Dental Care in Perth we offer sedation or sleep dentistry. With sedation dentistry you can put your dental fears or anxiety aside and sit back and have the dental care you need in comfort.
We use oral and intravenous sedation at our Duncraig dental clinic
During sedation you should feel totally relaxed. The purpose of conscious sedation is to provide nervous patients with treatment that keeps them relaxed.
During the treatment patients are calm and co-operative but not asleep, as some awareness can be necessary for safety and to help our dentists with the procedure. The sedation medicine essentially enters the brain and decreases anxiety and awareness leaving a feeling of relaxation and drowsiness. Many patients say they come in and out of consciousness at times during their procedure, which can make the time pass quicker.
Are you anxious that the treatment will be uncomfortable?
It is common for people to feel anxious about their dental treatment. Our dentists have a very gentle approach. If you feel that you need to be more relaxed during your treatment, Oral and IV sedation are particularly popular for those who are concerned about the actual procedure. For safety, our patient’s blood pressure is measured frequently and your pulse rate and oxygen levels are also monitored continuously.
