Managing Your Dental Anxiety and Pain Control
Whether it’s a fear of pain, loss of control or a chequered dental history that’s causing you to postpone visiting the dentist, we can help you overcome your dental fear. Our two safe techniques that will help put you at ease on the dental chair include:
Often referred to as ‘laughing gas’, nitrous oxide is inhaled via a small nasal mask. You will remain awake and be able to interact with the dentist and it is quickly eliminated from your body.
For those with more severe anxiety, we offer light oral sedation which has a stronger effect than nitrous oxide. With light oral sedation you will feel sleepy but still be able to interact with the dentist.
