Sleep Dentistry now available at Orange Moose Dental
Sometimes we’re in two minds about having that dental treatment that we know we need to have done, but we definitely don’t feel like having it done while we’re awake in the dental chair or making the effort to go to hospital for it.
At Orange Moose Dental, there is another option. Imagine falling asleep and being gently woken up when your procedure is complete. That is the new reality at Orange Moose Dental. We are proud to announce that we can now offer conscious IV sedation or “sleep dentistry”, an ideal solution for patients suffering from dental anxiety.
There are different types of dental conscious sedation techniques available to allow for a more comfortable visit to the dentist, all allowing some sort of depression of our conscious emotions and experience of our surroundings, usually to reduce fear and anxiety related to the dental experience.
Oral sedation, Inhalation sedation and IV sedation are the most common types of conscious sedation techniques used in dental practice.
Sedation dentistry is very closely monitored by the Dental Board of Australia, Australian Dental Association, Australian Society of Dental Anaesthesiology and the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.
At Orange Moose Dental, a specialty trained professional is utilized for administering IV sedation, while Dr Venter performs the dental procedure, ensuring patient safety throughout the process. Patients can relax in comfort in a purpose built treatment room during the procedure and gently wake in our recently completed recovery room.
It is important to understand that there are no such thing as a silver bullet where one type of service is ideal for all types of procedures and that’s why Dr Venter offers so many different types of services as part of the process to tailor each proposed treatment for each client that trusts Orange Moose Dental with their dental and oral health.
Up until now, clients in the Bundaberg region have been referred to the Sunshine Coast and Brisbane to have access to IV sedation services and Orange Moose Dental is proud to be the first practice now to offer this service at their beautiful facilities.
If you have any questions or queries about IV sedation and want to find out if it is an option for you or someone you know, feel free to contact our office on (07) 4152 4404
