Here at Thompson Road Dental Services, we can offer you general anaesthesia (or sleep dentistry) as a technique for overcoming your dental fears. If you have anxiety or fear of discomfort, this may prevent you from visiting our practice. Sleep dentistry takes the stress out of your dental appointments so you can avoid the parts that make you fearful.
Procedures performed under General Anaesthetic:
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Periodontal treatment (restore gums to good health)
- Children’s dentistry
However, this method of treatment is also great for saving time. Various treatment phases can be combined into one appointment. When the treatment is conducted under general anaesthetic multiple issues can be solved at once, meaning less trips to the dentist.
The patient is under the constant supervision of an experienced, specialist anaesthesiologist while sedated. With high-tech equipment at their disposal, anaesthetists have all the necessary readings monitored at all times. Our dental clinic provides sleep dentistry and trained anaesthesiologists to patients from Berwick to Cranbourne.
General Anesthesia is undertaken at Certified Private hospitals including Peninsula Private, Frankston Private and Monash Day Care.
