Sleep Dentistry in Prahran, Melbourne
If you suffer from a severe fear of the dentist, then Dr George Olstein’s sleep dentistry practice is the perfect place for you. We know how terrifying a trip to the dentist can be for those who suffer from a long-held phobia, or who have had negative experiences in the past. For some people, just seeing a dental clinic is enough to send them into a panic.
Dr George Olstein has incorporated pain free sleep dentistry into his practice as a means of combating dental phobias. Sleep dentistry makes use of supervised intravenous sedation in order to make a trip to the dentist a far more pleasant experience. Intravenous sedation puts patients into a state of ‘conscious sedation’ or ‘twilight sleep’.
Dr Olstein uses a very advanced form of sedation dentistry, which works by combining sedatives and pain relief medication in order to send patients into a special state of sleep. It is most comparable to the dream state of sleep, where you feel calm, relaxed and utterly unaware of anything else going on around you.
In this state of sleep, you won’t hear any drills, you won’t feel any pain or discomfort and you’ll wake up in a completely calm state just like you do after a great nights sleep. No unpleasant side effects and no knowledge of undergoing a procedure that would normally have you in a state of absolute terror.Book An Appointment
Completely Safe Sleep Dentistry Administered by an Experienced Anaesthetist
Dr George Olstein’s dental surgery is complete with all of the safety equipment that would be found in a hospital surgery room. An experienced anaesthetist who monitors you throughout the procedure administers the sedation, making the entire process no different from what you would experience in a hospital environment. The anaesthetist specialises in dental sedation meaning he knows exactly what to do ensure you experience no pain, discomfort or side effects.
A Simple, Streamlined Sedation Dentistry Process
The entire procedure takes place in Dr Olsteins surgery, streamlining the entire process and meaning you don’t have to be an inpatient in a hospital. All you have to do is come to the surgery and drift off into that wonderful, calm, relaxed state while Dr Olstein goes to work improving your oral health with all of the resources he needs close by to ensure efficient, effective treatment.
You don’t have to stay anywhere overnight and after a short period of recovery (usually 20-30 minutes), you’ll be on your way home. You just need to bring someone with you who can drive you home and stay with you for 24-hours following the procedure.
So, don’t let a phobia of the dentist stop you from receiving the dental treatment you need. Whether it’s a health or a cosmetic dentistry problem, your oral health and smile are important to all aspects of your life. Don’t let minor decay turn into a huge problem or a chipped tooth mar your smile because of a fear of dentists. Instead, visit our dental surgery and let our expert anaesthetist send you off into a peaceful sleep, while Dr George Olstein takes care of all that dental work you’ve been dreading and putting off for too long.
