By talking to you and understanding how your fears develop, we will be able to devise a way to treat you without causing undue anxiety. We will make sure treatment is carried out at a pace you feel comfortable with and of course you are free to stop at any stage. Many people are fearful because they feel helpless during treatment. Often simply being able to raise your hand to stop treatment can be enough to make an appointment more pleasant. When you visit us, you’ll notice our surgery is in a peaceful and tranquil setting which we find helps patients feel more relaxed and calm. As you become accustomed to visiting us, we hope your anxieties will gradually disappear as we aim to make every visit a positive experience.
Happy gas (nitrous oxide) is quick, convenient and very safe. The gas is inhaled through a small mask that will fit over your nose. It soon takes effect, allowing you to feel comfortably relaxed. Our dentist will continually monitor you during treatment and once the gas is turned off, it is soon eliminated from your body. After just a short while you will be fine to drive yourself home.
