At Bendigo Smiles, we realise that dental phobia/fear is something that puts many people off visiting the dentist.
We want you to know that we are here to listen to your needs and concerns, answer all your questions, and explain every step of your treatment.
We take every effort in making sure our patients are put at ease from the moment they step into our surgery.
How Sedation Dentistry Helps
Dental fear keeps you away from your dentist. As a result, you miss the chance to learn the current health of your teeth and gums. Sedation dentistry is an effective method that can help ease your worries and fears of dental visits. It is helpful for patients who have the following concerns:
- Low tolerance for pain
- Extremely sensitive teeth
- Discomfort in the dental chair
- Bad gag reflex
- A large amount of dental work performed in one appointment
Sedation dentistry involves different techniques including oral sedation and IV dentistry. These sedations create mild relaxation, but leave you fully aware of your surroundings. Another sedation approach is general anaesthesia, in which you lose conscious sensation and become completely asleep.
“Happy Gas” for Happy Visit
For very nervous patients, we have the option of having treatment done under “Happy Gas” or Nitrous oxide sedation. This helps to calm the nerves and helps the patient to relax very quickly and easily.
We also offer treatment performed under general anaesthesia at the St. John Of God Hospital, if required. Talk to our dentists if you have any anxiety issues regarding dental treatment and rest assured that they will be taken care of!
