Dental fear and anxiety are quite common, and most people experience some degree of anxiety while visiting the dentist.
Being afraid of the dentist can be due to a number of factors. Among younger patients, it can be because of the lack of accurate information. It’s quite possible that they might have heard stories from their peers or seen inaccurate portrayals of dental procedures online or in the media. For adults, unpleasant past experiences contribute to this fear and can trigger a flight or fight response, thereby making it very hard for the dentist to perform the required treatments safely. Dental phobia causes patients to avoid dental visits at all costs which jeopardizes their oral health and can lead to larger health issues in the future.
Dental anxiety stops you from receiving the treatment that you require for maintaining your teeth. The team at Dainty Dental Care can help you and your family to overcome the dental fears with our leading sedation dentistry treatments in Melbourne.
What is Sedation Dentistry under Nitrous oxide?
Dental sedation uses sedatives to put you in a highly relaxed state. This makes you calm and comfortable during the course of the procedure. Sedatives are easily administered and can be applied in various ways. Some medications are taken orally, while others can be applied into the bloodstream (see sleep dentistry). Some sedatives like Nitrous oxide are applied via inhalation through a purpose-built mask that fits comfortably over your nose. The entire process is guaranteed to be both safe and effective. In essence, sedation dentistry is the perfect alternative to traditional dental procedures as it provides a comfortable safety net for patients that suffer from dental anxiety.
