Keeping Dental Treatment Comfortable

Our aim is to always make sure all our patients feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible during their appointments. You’ll find we are all very friendly and approachable, and we do encourage patients to talk to us about any concerns they may have over treatments.

Not surprisingly, a fear of being in pain is often an issue, but you can rest assured we will make sure you receive sufficient local anaesthetic so you don’t feel a thing during treatment. We will regularly check on you to make sure you are okay, or if you feel you need a break you can simply raise your hand to stop treatment for a bit. You’ll find we are all very good at giving local anaesthetic with the minimum of discomfort, as the injection site can first be numbed with a topical cream.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

If you feel you would like a little sedation, then we can offer you laughing gas. This is an extremely safe form of sedation that uses a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen. It takes effect within a couple of minutes, and will help you feel completely relaxed. The gas is administered through a comfortable mask that fits over your nose. We will continually monitor you during sedation, ensuring your comfort and safety.

Once the gas is switched off, it is soon eliminated from your body. This means you can safely drive yourself home and don’t need anyone to accompany you to your appointment. It is very rare for anyone to experience side effects from nitrous oxide, but any symptoms are easily reversible through stopping or adjusting the flow of laughing gas. Treatment may not be suitable if you have a heavy cold, or are unable to breathe through your nose for some other reason.
