What helps with dental anxiety?

There are many ways to help dental anxiety. Some of which include deep breathing, meditation, being distracted, and hypnosis. However, the most effective and easiest option is sleep dentistry. By being put to sleep, you’re in your more relaxed state, which allows our dentists to get your procedure completed quickly and to the best standard possible. For more information on dental anxiety, contact our team of professional dentists today.

Is dental anesthesia painful?

No. Although you may feel some numbness or pressure from the process being performed, dental anaesthesia is not painful. In fact, it will help you not to feel the pain of tooth extractions, dental surgeries or any other painful dental procedures. It’s a great way to make you feel more comfortable in the dentist’s chair and not having to worry about what’s to come. For more information on both local and general anaesthetic, talk to our dentist’s today.

Do you feel pain with sedation dentistry?

No. When sedation dentistry is performed properly, you will not feel any pain. The entire basis of sedation dentistry is that you will be put to sleep or numbed during your dental procedure so that you don’t feel any pain throughout the process. You don’t have to worry about pain when you choose sedation dentistry from the team at ProSmiles. We’ll talk you through the entire process to ensure that you feel fully comfortable with the sleep dentistry treatment.

What does the dentist use to put you sleep?

Generally, local anaesthetic is used to put patients to sleep before commencing a dental surgery or procedure. Nitrous oxide is typically used to perform the sedation and will put you in a relaxed state. Our anaesthetist at ProSmiles is professional and highly experienced and will make you feel comfortable throughout every stage of your dental journey.

Can a dentist put me to sleep?

Yes. Our dentists can put you to sleep so that you feel more comfortable with the procedure and do not feel as though it’s too invasive. Talk to our dentists about your dental anxiety and your sleep dentistry options. We’re able to use sleep dentistry as a way to relax your nerves or also sedate you into a state where you’re no longer worried about the dental procedure you’re about to encounter.

How does sleep dentistry work?

At ProSmiles, we utilised IV sedation to make our patients feel less anxious and more comfortable with the dental procedure ahead. Alternatively, we can put you to sleep using laughing gas or nitrous oxide, which will put you in a relaxed state for the entirety of your dental procedure. Our experts know exactly how much gas to administer to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment and ensure that it is completely safe.
