Sleep Dentistry Specialists in Gisborne
At Gisborne Family Dental, we specialise in sleep dentistry meaning you can have easy, stress free dental treatments without having to travel!
Imagine if you could fall into a deep sleep, have a dream about being on the beach lying in a hammock with sunlight streaming through the palm leaves, and you’re feeling utterly zen listening to the sounds of the waves.
As the waiter approaches with your cocktail, you gently awaken to find that all your dental treatment has been completed, and you have no memory of the sensations usually felt during a dental procedure. Wouldn’t that be nice?
Well it’s totally possible.
Dentistry while you sleep is a wise decision for a positive experience
If you need larger dental procedures done, especially those that are more surgical in nature, you will have an infinitely more positive and comfortable experience should you choose to have it done while you sleep with our sedation dentistry facilities.
Moreover, your dentist usually takes less time to perform the dental treatment procedures to the highest standards possible, as you will be completely relaxed and asleep.
Some of the dentistry commonly performed while you sleep includes:
- Removal of wisdom teeth
- Implant surgery
- Multiple fillings
- Multiple crowns and bridges
A dentist that puts you to sleep for treatment can be like hitting the reset button
Do you sweat from your palms when you think about visiting the dentist and wish you could just be put to sleep for your treatment?
If you have had a bad dentist experience in the past, especially in childhood, receiving dental treatment while being awake can be very confronting.
The barrier of trauma created by those bad experiences can take a long time and patience to overcome, and we are on board to help you with that. However if you have a significant amount of dental treatment required in order to get you back to health, it is important to ensure you receive this care with some urgency so that your condition doesn’t deteriorate and ultimately lead to bigger problems and more pain.
Utilising sleep dentistry to undergo your dental treatment would definitely help with “resetting” your oral health to a safe and stable state. You can then patiently focus on maintenance and rebuilding your confidence in attending preventive visits 2-3 times a year.
Gisborne Family Dental is the perfect dentist for scared patients
The dental maintenance visits are designed to be minimal and paced at your comfort so that eventually you will no longer be fearful of attending dental visits. Also if there are any issues that are identified early, it can be nipped in the bud with a smaller treatment that tends to be easier to tolerate.
At Gisborne Family Dental, we are always focused on getting you back on the track of health, putting you back in control.
