Are you scared of going to the dentist? Do you have a bad gag reflex? Does local anaesthetic often not work? Do you want as much work done in one session as possible? These and many other reasons make you a candidate for sleep dentistry.
Dr Olstein was one of the first dentists in Victoria to utilise sleep dentistry in his surgery on a regular basis and has been doing so since 2006.
Sleep dentistry is the use of medically administered and supervised IV sedation and is often referred to as ‘Conscious Sedation” or “Twilight Sleep”. It is the most advanced form of dental sedation available and uses a combination of sedative and pain relieving drugs to create a deep state of sedation throughout the entire duration of the dental procedure.
