Sedation assistance for anxious patients
Dental fear is a learned response. Family, friends and the media can all be influences in your attitude towards dentistry, which unfortunately can manifest into a cycle of fear that results in irregular or non-existing dental check-ups.
Nitrous Oxide (Happy Gas) is an inhaled relaxation medication/gas, which will provide you with reduction of anxiousness. Relaxation techniques can also be introduced to help you cope when a patient is tense or upset, the body reacts accordingly and your muscles tighten, you tend to breathe faster and as a result feel a lot more sensitive than usual.
Essentially modern dentistry should be virtually pain free, so please take the time to discuss with us your fears and concerns. Open communication with all members of our loyal team leads to happy, confident patients.
