We Turn Nervous Patients into Happy Clients
For some people, the mere thought of the dentist can be nerve-wrecking. While going to a dentist is completely normal for some people, a few land in a state of anxiety and restlessness when it comes dental visits or dental procedures.
The condition is called dental phobia or dental anxiety where patients experience the fear of dentist, dentistry or receiving dental care. To be a nervous patient is no big deal whether you’re a child or a senior. However, the condition may lead to poor oral health if the patient continues to avoid dental visits for a long time.
It’s All Fine with a Friendly Dentist by Your Side
Dental phobia is a common problem not just with children but also amongst seniors. The team at Dental Barn, are specially trained to deal with patients scared of dentists or dental procedures.
With a modern yet friendly approach to the provision of dental care, our dentists make it absolutely comfortable for a nervous patient at the clinic to discuss their feelings and needs. We have a number of treatment options including sedation that help ease the nervousness and anxiety of patients during their dental visits and procedures.
The Benefits of Inhalation Sedation
We administer sedation through the nose – hence the name inhalation sedation. This is an Oxygen and Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) mixture which the patient inhales.
We use inhalation sedation with children and adults who are anxious or frightened about having dental treatment. It also works very well for patients with a strong ‘gag reflex.’ Patients who have a tendency to claustrophobia or panic attacks also find sedation reduces all these anxieties.
Inhalation sedation is very safe as the patient is wide awake and still in control albeit a little ‘floaty.’ You can safely drive home after a few minutes sitting in the waiting room before you leave. You won’t need an escort.
