We all know people who are afraid of the dentist and many of our patients have told us that visiting the dentist can be scary for a number of reasons. Dental fear is the most common thing that prevents patients from visiting the dentist and achieving their goals.
In order to alleviate some of the anxiety our patients feel about their dental experience, we provide virtually pain free treatment options.
By inhaling Penthrox, it alleviates initial anxiety associated with needles and patients do not feel any pain and are still able to remain awake during the treatment.
Anxiety tablets can be taken before treatment and these help to deliver a stress free treatment for patients.
This is an anesthetic performed by a highly-qualified anesthetist that allows patients to relax and feel at ease during the treatment as they don’t remember or feel any of the treatment being carried out.
These sedation options are generally more suitable for people who have some of the following
A fear of needles
Low pain threshold
Dislike of noises, smells and tastes during the dental procedures
Past traumatic dental experience
Strong gag reflex
Multiple dental treatments requiring long treatment time
