‘Sleep’ Dentistry

Most dental procedures can be performed in a hospital environment while you are under general anaesthesia (asleep).

This sleep state lasts throughout the duration of the procedure and patients usually go home the same day.

Why undertake ‘sleep’ dentistry?

Reasons for ‘sleep’ dentistry:

  • major dental surgery
  • severe dental anxiety
  • low pain tolerance
  • strong gag reflex during dental procedures
  • large amounts of work needing to be completed in one visit
  • difficulty keeping the mouth open for prolonged periods
  • some cases of children’s dentistry

This approach allows the anxious patient to complete dental treatment as the patient is asleep and there is no discomfort experienced during the procedure.
