Sleep Dentistry

Although many people feel slightly apprehensive about a visit to the dentist, for some people the fear is great. This can cause them to miss appointments, fail to attend for vital treatment and spend days dreading their appointment because of their perception of what might happen.


Unfortunately, without scheduled dental care, teeth can often continue to deteriorate, often requiring radical dentistry to treat them. We don’t want our patients feel apprehensive, which is why we offer a number of sleep dentistry options in Adelaide.


In sleep dentistry, the patient is still conscious and coherent but is given medication which has a soothing, tranquilising effect. This helps make the treatment more bearable. The types of sleep dentistry Pellew Dental offers are:

IV Sedation

This involves the intravenous (IV) administration of a sedative, which has a powerful calming effect. Ideal for patients with a significant phobia of the dentist, it can enable essential treatment to be carried out with as little distress as possible. IV sedation is always done by a fully qualified, medically trained anaesthetist so you will be in safe hands. Learn more about IV sedation dentistry.


Sedation Dentistry

This is a mild tranquilliser and anti-anxiety medication which comes in gas form. Administered through a mask, it has a temporary soothing effect that can be helpful for nervous patients. Learn more about sedation dentistry.
