We know that it's unavoidable for some people to get nervous at the dentist, even though we go out of our way to ensure the experience is as pleasant as possible. You can be assured that we will take the time to listen and understand your concerns to work out the best way to provide comfortable treatment. One way we can help you overcome any dental anxieties is through sedation dentistry.
At Pialba Dental Hervey Bay, we offer nitrous oxide (happy gas) as sedation dentistry. This method is completely safe and can be highly effective in helping to relieve dental anxieties.
The gas is simply inhaled through a small mask that will fit over your nose and it takes effect in just a few breaths, inducing a sense of relaxation. Combined with anaesthetic, you can experience a more comfortable, easy treatment. The particularly nice thing about nitrous oxide is that once it is turned off, the gas only takes about two minutes to be eliminated from the body. This is the only form of sedation where you will be able to safely drive home.
There are many options available for those who are nervous to visit the dentist and we will do our best to ensure your comfort. For more information, please get in contact.
