Sleep Dentistry

Sleep Dentist, Melbourne

Many people feel anxious about having dental treatment performed while conscious under local anaesthetic alone. This may be due to a previous uncomfortable dental experience or the requirement for extensive treatment that they’d rather be put to sleep for. Either way, if you struggle to relax in the dentist’s chair, the sleep dentistry specialists at Brunswick East Dental Studio in Melbourne can help you.

Our philosophy is built around creating a comfortable, personal experience for our patients. We’ll take the time to understand your concerns, so we can build the right solution and ensure you feel at ease.

Our sleep dental process

We have several options available to help people with dental-related anxiety but the best option is usually Sleep Dentistry under General Anaesthetic facilitated by a board-certified anaesthetist and the team from Mobile Dental Anaesthetic Solutions (MDAS).

This allows us to be able to perform the dental work required in an efficient manner while maintaining our patient’s safety and comfort. If you have a fear of the dentist or feel like you’d rather not be awake while having your treatment performed then ask us about sleep dentistry or “sedation dentistry”.

Everything we do at Brunswick East Dental Studio is tailored to the individual patient. Our dentists care about you and your well-being and will make sure you feel completely comfortable and relaxed. We offer several types of sedation (from mild to full GA) and will select the most appropriate level for you based on your individual needs and the necessary treatment. 

Our team of experienced sleep dentists in Melbourne have the tools and the knowledge to offer a straight-forward treatment that’s suited to your needs. They’ll discuss your medical history and individual needs to enable them to choose the best sleep dentistry method.

We offer sleep dentistry alongside our general dental services in our Melbourne studio, and there are a range of reasons you might choose to be asleep during your treatment. Rest assured that we only use the most advanced techniques developed by specialists in the field.
