Have you found yourself avoiding the dentist despite oral health issues such as dental caries or cracked teeth?

Are you looking to improve your smile with dental treatment including dental implants and All on 4 implants, but you are simply too anxious about the procedure or fear it may be painful?

You may be suffering from dental anxiety or dental phobia, in which case dental sedation or sleep dentistry provided by IV sedation could be an excellent solution.

When you continue to ignore small health issues like fissures or sensitivity of the teeth, the problem could worsen, leading to even more pronounced dental anxiety and a more invasive dental procedure and expense.

Dental Sedation Melissa LicenblatWhat is dental anxiety and how can dental sedation help?

Dental anxieties are unfortunately all too common. Dental anxiety can be associated with the dental clinic setting or specific triggers like needles or drills.

There are various reasons why these kinds of anxieties develop, including previous negative experiences with a dentist, extreme sensitivity, or resistance to local anaesthetics.

Luckily, Sydney Dental Aesthetics & Implants (SDAI) in Martin Place, Sydney CBD have a highly experienced and qualified sedationist conveniently onsite. Dr Melissa Licenblat has been performing dental sedation for decades and is well known for her caring and professional manner, Dr Mel will make you feel at ease from the beginning.

Dental sedation helps to keep patients calm for the duration of their dental treatments so they can get the necessary work completed quickly and efficiently and without enduring the anxiety or discomforts of the past.
