For some people having dental treatment can feel very stressful and anxiety provoking. However, delaying treatment can lead to long term, irreversible oral and general health problems which can be more stressful and expensive down the track.
At DentalCare Carnegie we understand that you may feel anxious before your treatment and that is why we have partnered with Dental Sedationist Dr Barry Creighton.
The benefits of sleep dentistry include:
⭐ Sleep dentistry, also known as twilight sedation, provides a gentle and safe way to relieve anxiety.
⭐ We take a team approach and carefully plan your treatment with your dentist, dental sedationist and their registered nurse.
⭐ Sleep dentistry provides the opportunity for you to have dental treatment in the familiarity of their regular dental clinic in a safe and contained way.
Our caring team together with our dental anaesthetist Dr Barry Creighton helping a very nervous patient feel completely relaxed and at ease with sleep dentistry. Absolute success 💤🍀
For those who experience significant anxiety about their dental treatment, sleep dentistry allows patients to have their dental treatment carried out while in a deeply relaxed state. Despite still being conscious and able to follow instructions from the dental sedationist and dentist, patients often have no memory of the procedure.
The benefits of sleep dentistry at DentalCare Carnegie is that we utilise the service of a mobile dental sedationist who is able to treat you in the comfort and familiarity of our clinic. No hospital visits needed.
In order to determine your suitability for sleep dentistry, your DentalCare Carnegie dentist will perform a comprehensive examination, compile a treatment plan and if sleep dentistry is required will then refer you to our sleep sedationist who will undertake a comprehensive medical consultation with you and plan your appointment.
