Pain and anxiety management (sedation)
Understanding how anxious of Dental treatment certain people are, we have developed a range of treatment options that will help you to have pain and fear free Dentistry.
We have a special interest in helping patients who are nervous of treatment. Over the years, we have helped many people overcome their fears.
If you have not been to the dentist for a long time, do not feel embarrassed, we have seen this many, many times. We will not be shocked; we have helped many people who have not seen a dentist for years. We do not want you to feel guilty or bad that you haven't been and we will never be disapproving or judgemental!
We try very hard to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed.
If you are nervous:
1.We will first of all meet you just for a chat (consultation) and learn exactly what your worries are. You do not even have to sit in the dental chair initially.
2. We will put ourselves in your hands. You are in control at all times. Only treatment that you are comfortable about having carried out will be carried out.
3. We will keep you in control. Even if you want us to stop during treatment - just let us know. If we are in the middle of doing something, put your hand up and we will
pain management techniques
Sedation is a very effective way to help you enjoy a more relaxed dental experience. It will help to build confidence and lessen apprehension of dental procedures.
Such well known techniques include “happy gas” and Intravenous Sedation, which make you feel relaxed and comfortable during treatment. Local anaesthetic coupled with topical creams, applied to the gums before injection, minimise discomfort.
Injex no needle system is also available but is only useful in certain clinical cases.
Vibraject is a new technique which uses vibrations to help eliminate the pain of dental anaesthetic.
