Sleep dentistry is the use of medically administered and supervised IV Sedation (sometimes called 'twilight sedation', 'twilight sleep' or 'sedation dentistry'). It is the most advanced form of dental sedation available and uses a combination of sedative and pain relieving drugs, administered and supervised by an experienced medical doctor.
It is a modern, safe and highly effective technique for overcoming the fear, anxiety and discomfort that so often accompanies a visit to the dentist, making it a relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable experience.
Although you may be unaware that it is available, once Sleep dentistry is experienced you will have an entirely new, positive and relaxed outlook when you next see the dentist.
Sleep dentistry is used to create a drowsy and dream-like state of deep, calming relaxation for the entire duration of your dental procedure.
It is safer than a general anaesthetic and does not require hospitalisation. You can have Sleep dentistry here at Broadway dental while you sit in our beautiful surgeries, accompanied by our trained and friendly team.
During Sleep dentistry you are in a very calm and relaxed state and breathing entirely on your own, without assistance or artificial ventilation.
Sleep dentistry begins even before the dentist gives you the first needles, and is precisely adjusted, tailored and modified to each patient's individual needs. When you wake up, you have no recollection of the noises, smells and tastes of the dental work and are unaware of needles and drilling. There is no pain, no discomfort and no fear. Sleep dentistry takes the trauma out of your dental visit.
You are ready to go home after only a short waking up period.
