Many individuals across Australia fear the dentist. In fact, research shows that up to 36% of individuals suffer from dental anxiety. Despite advancements making treatments faster and gentler, a large percentage of people still experience light to moderate anxiety when faced with the prospect of sitting in the dental chair.
The Bondi Family Dentist team is proficient at managing patients’ fears, from minor discomfort to dental phobia, we can help make the experience relaxing by offering safe, pain-free solutions.
“Happy Gas” / Nitrous Oxide
Say goodbye to anxiety and nerves by asking for “happy gas”, also known by its scientific name of “nitrous oxide”.
This gas provides patients not only with a feeling of calm and euphoria, shifting an otherwise nervous experience into one that is enjoyable – but also has a unique ability to dull the senses of hearing, touch, and even pain.
Sedation dentistry involves the use of medications to enable the patient to relax throughout a dental procedure.
Our dentists can prescribe sedation medication if required for treatments.
