At Denticheck we know that fear, anxiety and specific medical conditions accompany many patients to the dentists, causing undue stress and resulting in a negative dental experience. However patient experience and comfort are very important to our team, and for this reason we offer various treatment options to help ensure that your treatment is a painless, relaxed and positive experience.
Nitrous Oxide is commonly referred to as happy or laughing gas and is a colourless, non-flammable gas with a slightly sweet taste and odour. Having been widely used for over 40 years, happy gas is an effective option to ensure adults and children alike have a positive and relaxed dental experience. Upon inhaling nitrous oxide patients will experience sensations of acute joy or deep relaxation for the duration of their treatment. Upon completion of your treatment and once ceasing inhalation its effects will cease in just a few minutes and the gas will completely exit the body with 24 hours.
A generally anaesthetic is a great option for patients suffering from severe anxiety or fear or those patients requiring extensive or multiple treatments in a single session. Administered by a qualified anaesthetist, patients under a general anaesthetic will remain unconscious throughout the duration of their treatment and awaken upon completing their treatment.
If feel that either of these options are for you, we require that you contact our practice in advance to ensure that we can organise the availability of these treatments. For further information or to arrange a consultation, contact our friendly team.
