At Progressive Dental, we know that a lot of people are anxious about visiting the dentist. Even though pain-free dentistry has come ahead in leaps and bounds over the years, many people will put off their dental appointments through fear of pain.
Don’t be embarrassed by that. A lot of people come in and say, “I am really scared”. We have lots of different means of pain relief from which you can choose, ranging from nitrous oxide (happy gas) or oral valium, right through to intravenous sedation, also known as sleep dentistry, for very anxious patients.
Be assured that we will take the time to make you feel comfortable. We will explain the process as we go along so that there are no surprises. We have TV screens and headphones so that you can watch something while we work. You can even bring in your own DVD.
If you’re particularly concerned or nervous about your treatment, talk to our dentists to work out what form of sedation will work best for you.
Sedation Dentistry Mosman
For any pre-booked appointment our practice is able to offer sedation dentistry (IV sedation) by a qualified professional. This allows a completely relaxed and anxiety free dental treatment.
Sedation dentistry is a common procedure for patients who require extra care from anxiety, phobias or medical conditions. Under the IV sedations time passes very quickly as a deep feeling of relaxation is induced for the duration of the treatment. Upon completion of the treatment patients remember very little, as if asleep the whole time.
Sedation dentistry is a safe less invasive option to a general anaesthetic. For more information regarding any of these services or to notify us of your requirement of these services for your next booking please contact our friendly team.
Dr. Kevin Lai is our visiting sedation specialist. He works closely with Dr. Taub in various procedures and those patient who request tranquil sedation
