Anxious Patients

Sleep and Sedation Dentistry Melbourne VIC

Do you dread the idea of visiting the dentist? At Marriott & Hand we cater to anxious patients through the use of sleep and sedation dentistry at our Essendon practice


Dental fear or anxiety is not uncommon. It is something which affects thousands of Australians, and can hold them back from receiving the dental treatment they need. We understand that many of our patients suffer from dental fear and anxiety. Some even avoid dental treatments altogether.

Avoiding dental check-ups or treatments cannot only be detrimental to your oral health, but your overall health could also be at risk.

At Marriott & Hand, we have made sure to cater to those that experience dental anxiety and offer sleep dentistry treatments. Now you can undergo the dental treatment you need without worrying about the sights, smells and feeling of dental care.

A comfortable and compassionate practice

The team at Marriott & Hand is committed to providing a comfortable environment for every patient who visits the practice. We take a personal approach to dental care and will talk you through each treatment and process, and discuss any worries or concerns, as well as other options available.

Our practice utilizes modern technology partnered with the skill of our highly trained and experienced doctors. You can sit back and relax knowing you are in the best hands.

Sleep and sedation dentistry options

We provide options such as Penthrox, an inhalant which helps relax your nerves, as well as general anaesthetic so you can be completely sedated during treatment. By offering these sedation options, we have ensured that all our patients can receive the dental care they need and deserve.

You don’t have to be anxious or afraid of the dentist to use sedation dentistry. Some patients opt for sedation for other reasons such as wanting to get multiple treatments completed in just one appointment. This is great for patients who do not have a lot of time but need multiple treatments carried out.

Whether you suffer from fear of the dentist, are anxious about treatment, or just want to feel relaxed during treatment, talk to the friendly team at Marriott & Hand in Melbourne about how we can help you.  Our team is here to help you get the best dental care available.
