With a focus on individualised treatment and attentive care, dentists and anaesthetists at Sleep Dentistry Melbourne use techniques and equipment that maximise patient comfort before, during and after all dental procedures that are performed under General Anaesthetic.
Customised to Individual Needs
At our Melbourne clinics, we offer a full general anaesthetic to reduce awareness and improve comfort for our patients. Our state-of-the-art anaesthetic and monitoring equipment allow our specialists to adjust levels of safe anaesthetic during your treatment.
Programmable Infusion and BIS Monitoring
Our anaesthetists use the latest programmable syringe drivers- those used by many of the top hospitals in the country- to provide an accurate infusion of anaesthetic and pain relieving medication throughout dental procedures that are performed while you are asleep.
Our sophisticated Brain Wave (BIS) Monitoring system allows our anaesthetics to gauge the level of anaesthetic and accurately adjust the rate of infusion of the medication. This not only helps in controlling levels of anaesthetic but ensures a fast recovery with minimal side effects.
Recovery from General Anaesthetic
When you wake up from your general anaesthetic you are not likely to have any recollection of your procedure as you are removed into recovery. When you are taken into the recovery area, you will continue to be monitored. The recovery area has comfortable recliners and on-demand audio-visual entertainment for additional comfort and enjoyment.
How you feel post-procedure will depend on a range of factors. You will be given a personalised instruction sheet detailing important post-operative care and recovery information. For more information about sleep dentistry and our Melbourne locations, contact us to speak to a member of our team.
