Sleep Dentistry in Mandurah
Sedation at Falcon Dental Centre
Dental phobia is no laughing matter. In fact, fear of the dentist is one of the most common reasons why people delay their care. At Falcon Dental Care, our Falcon family dentists strive to make your experience one that’s as relaxing as possible. Just one of the ways we do this is by providing sleep dentistry solutions.
What is sleep dentistry?
There are two types of sleep dentistry provided in our practice. With both, you won’t have to see, hear or experience the typical sights, sounds or feelings of your dental procedure.
You might want to consider requesting sedation during your appointment for
Overcoming dental phobia and anxiety
Completing multiple procedures at one time
“Napping” through a visit to the dentist
More complex procedures, such as wisdom tooth removal or implant placement
Our Falcon dentists will thoroughly review your medical and dental history to help you identify which type of sleep dentistry is most appropriate. We offer both IV sedation and general anaesthesia (GA).
When sedation medication is delivered directly into your bloodstream through an IV, it makes you drowsy, up to the point where you quickly fall asleep.
Our Mandurah dentists find IV sedation to be one of the best ways to ensure optimal patient comfort. It is extremely safe and can be carefully managed throughout the dental appointment.
GA provides the deepest level of safe sedation. Since it does suppress your respiration, a breathing tube is also used to ensure your safety. The method of sleep dentistry is best for longer, more complex procedures.
