Sleep Dentistry in Perth
Are you afraid to visit the dentist? Well, you’re not alone. Millions of people avoid visiting the dentist because of the fear associated with a dental visit. It may stem from a bad experience, or because it can be uncomfortable to undergo dental work.
Neglecting your oral care will only make matters worse. By the time you have no choice to visit a dentist, your condition may be extremely sensitive and permanent damage may have been caused. This causes an endless cycle of avoidance leading to complications.
If fear is keeping you from the dentist, Tee Family Dental has an option you may want to consider. It’s called sedation or sleep dentistry. It allows you to have your dental treatments done while you’re under sedation.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
During sedation or sleep dentistry, medications are used to help a patient relax while dental procedures are being done. Sedation dentistry is often referred to as “sleep” dentistry, although that term is misleading. The patient isn’t actually asleep, but instead is in a “twilight” state. A combination of sedative and pain relieving drugs is given intravenously to create a dream-like state of deep, calming relaxation for the entire duration of your procedure. When you wake up you will usually have no memory of the procedure and feel as if very little time has passed. You may feel as if you’ve had a deep and satisfying sleep.
At Tee Family Dental, we employ the services of a qualified dental seditionist to make sure that your procedure is 100% safe.
Should You Undergo Sedation?
If fear or anxiety is keeping you from the dentist, especially if you have an issue which needs attention, then sleep dentistry may be a good option for you. In addition, it may be right for you if you have a low pain threshold, can’t sit still, have a bad gag reflex, need to undergo a considerable amount of dental work, or have very sensitive teeth. You no longer need to suffer with dental pain and the possible complications that can arise when oral care is neglected.
