Sedation Sleep Dentistry Sydney - Improve Your Teeth While You’re Asleep!

Are you afraid of going to the dentist (it doesn’t matter how old you are!) even though you want to fix your teeth? You’re not alone.

You may have had bad experiences, especially as a child, or you’ve heard horror stories. Maybe it’s the fear of the unknown stopping you from having the healthy, beautiful white smile you’ve always dreamed of that will change your face and life.

If being awake during a dental treatment or cosmetic dental procedure worries you, at Designer Smiles, in Cremorne on Sydney’s lower North Shore, we offer a number of pain-free sleep dentistry options, including IV sedation, nitrous oxide and The Wand®. This is NOT general anaesthetic, where you are deeply unconscious and unresponsive. Instead, sleep dentistry is relaxing. It offers the convenience of getting the treatment done, while taking stress and anxiety out of your visit.

Whether you’re concerned about tooth decay, want new or replacement fillings (especially old amalgam ones), teeth whitening, teeth cleaning or one of a range of cosmetic dental procedures performed by aesthetic reconstructive dentist Dr Sarkis Nalbandian and his team, call us today to know about the sleep dentistry options.

We immediately begin to assess your concerns and you will find there is nothing to be afraid of!

How Sleep Dentistry Works for You?

In the chair at Designer Smiles Sydney, you will be covered with a warm blanket and a blood pressure cuff wrapped around one arm.

You then receive a combination of sedative and pain-relieving drugs (alternatively, “happy gas”) to create a drowsy and dream-like state – not quite awake or asleep. You will be undisturbed by the noises, tastes, sights and smells of the dental procedure. There is no pain or anxiety.

Yet you are still able to co-operate with Dr Nalbandian or one of his team when asked. Afterwards, you won’t remember it but will have a heightened sense of wellbeing.

Your Sleep Dentistry Options

  • The Wand® - the first computer-controlled system for delivery of local anaesthetic. It replaces the 150-year-old technology of syringes. You won’t even be aware of other injections in your mouth needed for your treatment.
  • Intravenous (IV) sedation - Most people are barely aware of the injection as it’s like a small scratch or mosquito bite. Often referred to as “twilight sedation” or “conscious sedation”.
  • Nitrous oxide - commonly known as “laughing gas” is inhaled at regular intervals via a face mask and puts you into a relaxed, almost euphoric state.
