Sleep Dentistry


Relax, you deserve it!

A trip to the dentist can be a daunting and uncomfortable experience for some people. At Maylands Dental Centre, we often see this preventing people from seeking the dental treatment they need, resulting in their existing conditions worsening. This is not something we want any of our patients experiencing.

To avoid this, we offer the opportunity to provide Sedation Dentistry (‘Sleep’) with the use of intravenous sedation ("IV") administered and supervised by a qualified and experienced medically trained anaesthetist. Often referred to as “Conscious Sedation”, a combination of a sedative drug (local anaesthetic, general anaesthetic) and pain relieving drugs are given by the specialist medical anaesthetist to put you into a calm and relaxed state while you undergo dental treatment.

We also offer oral sedation and these tablets can be taken the night before and/or one hour prior to your dental procedure, depending on the level of sedation required. Furthermore, we also offer laughing gas for those wanting a constant boost throughout their appointment.

Sedation dentistry is available for any dental procedure or dental treatments and is especially useful for those that require more complex work. Sleep dentistry is also helpful for anxious patients or patients who suffer from dental phobia and dental anxiety.

If you feel you could benefit from sleep dentistry, the first step is to contact a dentist to book a dental examination. The dentist can then recommend the best method of sedation to suit your individual situation. To find out more about sedation sleep dentistry or the wide range of dentistry services we provide, contact Maylands Dental Centre on (08) 9370 5464.


Our qualified and friendly team of gentle dentists will take care of you during your dental sedation. With years of experience and training, you are in safe hands.

Save time. Complex dental procedures that often require multiple appointments can be done in one visit with sleep dentistry.

You won't remember a thing. For patients with concerns about dental treatment, treatment under minimal sedation or moderate sedation will feel like a quick nap!

Our experienced dentists carefully place you into a deep sleep, so you can proceed with your dental procedure pain and worry free.

Bypass physical limitations. If you struggle with a sensitive gag reflex or dread the thought of having to sit in a chair and keep your mouth open, sleep dentistry can assist with this.

Medicare rebate and health fund rebates available!


The cost of having treatment under IV sedation will vary depending on the complexity of your case and the amount of time it will take for your dentist to complete the procedure. This will be assessed at your initial comprehensive examination where all anaesthetist costs, fees and rebates regarding IV sedation will be explained. Patients with private health insurance should consult their provider regarding any rebates/assistance for dental care or treatment provided under general anaesthetic.

Our practice offers 0% (no interest) financing options so that you have options. Flexible repayments that fit your monthly budget so that you can easily afford to have your dental health restored. Maylands Dental Centre also offer flexible payment plans to patients without hospital cover.

Please note any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, we recommend you discuss these matters with an appropriately qualified health practitioner first or seek a second opinion to discuss your medical history and any previous medical conditions.

The Australian dental association strongly urges Australians to have their dental surgery in Australia, as the benefits far outweigh the risks.
