How Sleep Dentistry Can Help Anxious Patients

At My Dentist, our caring team understands that visiting the dentist may be a distressing experience for some patients. Because we offer personalised and one-on-one care, we can recognise when a patient may be suffering from heightened anxiety or dental phobia. We never want this fear to prevent a patient from seeking the dental care they require, nor should it negatively impact their oral health and hygiene. That is why we have many pain management and sedation methods on hand. Additionally, we’re always here to offer reassurance, kindness, and the highest quality of care that you would expect from a reputable dental practice. One of our solutions to help you have stress-free dental care is sleep dentistry, which will leave you in an unconscious state while your procedures are being performed.

The Many Advantages of Sleep Dentistry

Our sedation methods allow you to remain in a highly relaxed state throughout your procedure. Intravenous (IV) sedation (also known as sleep dentistry) is one of the most advanced forms of sedation available. It involves administering a combination of sedative and pain management drugs intravenously (into the bloodstream). Sleep dentistry has many benefits: • Medication applied intravenously for nearly instant results • Remaining asleep during the procedure • Waking with no recollection of your dental treatment Our various sedation methods allow us to perform dental procedures whilst the patient is in a highly relaxed or sedative state, helping them to feel comfortable and pain-free during treatment. Additionally, it also helps the patient to undergo procedures without feeling overwhelmingly stressed or anxious, therefore helping them to have a positive experience whilst seeking dental care.

I have been coming to the practice for 12 years and recommend them highly. Very high standard of dental work 100% of the time. I drive 40 minutes from where I live to see them as I would never go anywhere else.
