Sleep Den­tistry now avail­able at Or­ange Moose Den­tal

Bundaberg Style - - LOOKING GOOD -

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
