What is General Anaesthesia/Sleep Dentistry?

You’ve likely heard of general anaesthesia or sleep dentistry before. It involves you being unconscious during your dental procedure. The anaesthetic is administered intravenously. Normally, this process would have to be arranged in hospital, but it can be completed at our practice thanks to our advanced training. The effects of the anaesthesia can last for a time after your appointment. We recommend that you have someone bring you to and from our clinic.

Appropriate for a Range of Dental Procedures

Sleep dentistry can be useful in an array of different situations. For example, you may need to have teeth extracted before getting dentures or dental implants. Others might require their wisdom teeth to be removed. We are able to administer sleep dentistry in many cases. It can be especially useful for those who wish to have several procedures done at a single time, such as during a smile makeover. You’ll be able to have several services done at one time, making your care convenient for you.
