Do you have a crippling fear of the dentist? You are not alone.

Many Australians suffer from dental anxiety, often associated with past dental experiences or stories from friends or family who have had bad experiences of their own.

While dental anxiety can be quite common it affects the oral health of many Australians who experience it. Many patients can spend years without visiting the dentist and dental concerns that start out quite small can often become complicated over time.

But dentistry doesn’t have to be a scary or painful experience. The team at Malo Clinic Gold Coast understand these concerns, that is why we offer our patients sleep dentistry.

Sleep dentistry (also known as sedation dentistry) can be used when performing a number of treatments including fillings, cleans and implant procedures.

Sedation dentistry allows us to put the patient in a relaxed and sedated state, which helps minimise pain and discomfort during dental procedures. This can also help reduce overall treatment time and help more complex procedures to be completed in fewer visits.

Do you offer sleep dentistry for children?

Yes, we do offer sleep dentistry for our younger, anxious and restless patients. Our caring and dedicated team are experienced with treating children and understanding the needs and concerns of parents when it comes to dental treatments.

We aim to make all of our visitors feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible, and help those who suffer from dental anxiety.

If you are in need of dental care or just a professional dental clean, don’t let your fear of the dentist hold you back from obtaining optimum oral health. Speak to one of our friendly team members today about sleep dentistry, or simply fill out our online contact form.

We would love to work with you, to help you overcome your fear of the dentist.
