Sleep Dentists In Sippy Downs
If you are very anxious or have more complex surgery, we offer twilight sedation, also known as sleep dentistry. Your visit to our sleep dentists on The Sunshine Cast will be relaxed, and you will have no memory of it. Our sleep or sedation dentist service is provided under the supervision of a visiting anesthetist, adhering to the strict guidelines of the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists. This includes the use of all necessary monitoring and safety equipment.
Why Choose Sleep Dentistry?
As a leading provider of sleep dentistry on the Sunshine Coast, we understand that some patients are very anxious about visiting the dentist. It is often better to see a dentist when you have dental problems as soon as possible. Worrying about the situation in this case often makes it worse due to not taking action.
Aside from being an option for anxious patients, sleep dentist treatments may be more effective in some circumstances. Under sedation, more work may be completed during dental implants or other complicated procedures. This can reduce the number of appointments required for this type of service, saving time and costs.
