Dental fear can lead minor tooth problems to become major oral health issues—but sleep dentistry can ensure that you get the care you need without causing unnecessary stress or anxiety.
Could sleep dentistry be a good option for you?
Talk to Glen Erin Dental about your concerns and you can decide together if your case is right for sleep dentistry. Depending on your unique situation Glen Erin Dental will consider your particular needs and employ the appropriate sedation method during your procedure.
Oral Conscious Sedation
If you suffer from dental phobia, you’re not alone—many of our patients have put off going to the dentist for months, years, or even decades because of the anxiety caused by a dental visit! One option we offer anxious patients—or patients who need a large number of procedures done during a single visit—is sedation dentistry, where we provide an oral sedative that is taken prior to the dental visit. Our highly trained staff will monitor your vital signs and your comfort level throughout the process and will make adjustments accordingly.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Also known as “laughing gas”, nitrous oxide is a powerful gas that, when mixed with oxygen and administered via a face mask, blocks pain and reduces anxiety. Commonly used in many aspects of dentistry to keep you more comfortable, it is an excellent way to eliminate feelings of anxiety associated with dental procedures.
