Anxious Patients

At North Sydney Dental Practice our aim is to make your treatment as comfortable as possible. We provide special care for anxious and nervous patients to make you feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment. In addition to treatment from gentle and understanding practitioners in a comfortable and relaxed setting, we offer the following services to further assist with relaxation and allaying any fears you may have;

Relaxing Environment

Our modern surgeries all contain mounted TV screens with Foxtel so that you can watch TV throughout your treatment. We also have a wide selection of music available to take your mind off the dentistry and help ensure your experience with us is more relaxing and enjoyable.

Nitrous Oxide (Happy Gas)

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as happy gas, has been used successfully in medicine as an anaesthetic since 1840. It is safe to use on most adults with no side effects. Patients regain full function only minutes after ceasing inhalation. Happy gas provides a relaxed, painless feeling throughout the treatment.

Intravenous Sedation (IV)

IV sedation is a sedative commonly provided during dental treatment for patients who need extra care due to a phobia, nervousness or a medical condition. IV Sedation induces a state of deep relaxation. Time will appear to pass very quickly and you will not recall much of what happened as if you were asleep during the treatment. IV Sedation is a popular treatment option for patients who suffer from more severe anxiety and patients that require more extensive or multiple treatments in a single sitting.

Cordless Headphones

The sound of our equipment can make some of our patients feel slightly anxious so at North Sydney Dental Practice, we use cordless headphones to reduce this noise and make our treatments as pleasant and relaxing as possible.

General Anaesthetics

To ensure the experience of our patients is both relaxing and positive, we offer General Anaesthetics at Randwick Day Surgery under the guidance of a qualified Anaesthetist. Our professional staff are qualified and proficient in conducting treatment on sedated patients.

 

If you feel that any of these services may benefit you and help to make your next visit with us a more relaxed, positive experience, contact our friendly team in North Sydney to discuss your options.
