Gentle and effective
pain management options
are not only for
the faint of heart!
They are for anyone wanting an easier, more relaxed dental experience.
We recognise how we manage pain is very individual and this is why we offer a number of solutions for our patients that range in intensity from very mild anaesthetic to sleep dentistry.
- Inhalation Sedation (laughing gas)
- Sleep dentistry
Ever wondered about the
alternatives to local anaesthetic?
You might be pleased to know you have more options than you think
Patient sedation - provided by laughing gas (as it’s commonly called) - could be the best way for you to manage fears about receiving dental treatment.
Laughing gas is nitrous oxide. Administered as a gas it is very effective for calming and relaxing patients, particularly those with lower anxiety levels around dental treatment.
With limited risk to the patient from inhalation, gas is introduced through a comfortable mask placed over the nose. Rapidly effective in bringing you to a state of relaxation, it is then possible to administer local anaesthesia via injection to further reduce any pain associated with a particular treatment you are receiving.
Could sleep dentistry
Let’s look at the reasons you’d consider this approach
Dentists and dental practices wear some negative press, don’t they? With many people experience anxiety around the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells when they visit their dentist, it’s any wonder patients avoid necessary treatment.
We understand this association and offer sleep dentistry as a way to help our patients manage their dental fears.
Sleep dentistry is an ideal way to eliminate the concerns, anxiety, and discomfort that may be associated with your dental treatment. It is ideal for patients who:
- Have a fear of needles and a low pain threshold
- Feel uncomfortable with typical dental sights, sounds, smells, and tastes
- Have jaw issues or difficulty keeping their mouth open for extended periods
- Struggle with trauma from previous negative dental experiences
- Need to have multiple dental treatments simultaneously
- Have an intellectual disability or advanced ADHD
- Difficulty swallowing or breathing during dental treatment
Our priority is to provide you with gentle care that instills confidence in your decision to be treated by us. If you experience any anxiety at all with dental treatment, Dr Nimesh offers an understanding approach that will ensure you are able to do what’s necessary to achieve the highest level of oral health.
