Fear of Dentistry-using Sedation Dentistry (or Nitrous Oxide) to help a nervous patient.
“I’m afraid of needles. I’m afraid I won’t freeze. The noise of the drill terrifies me.I’m afraid. I’m afraid. I’m afraid”
It is the 21st century and this particular problem still exists. Are there any solutions?
In my office, we have found there are many ways to help a nervous patient. First, we all carefully listen to each patient. You supply the answers for us to help you. We appreciate so much when a new patient on the phone tells us they are scared, because we understand exactly what we have to do.
- Use our noise reduction headphones. These headphones are so effective that I have to lift them from my patient’s ear if I need to speak with you during the appointment.
- Please ask us to reserve the Nitrous Oxide for your dental appointment. This reversible sedation induces a light, happy feeling. You are awake the whole time; what it does is allow you not to focus on the sounds of the drill. If you prefer, you may ask us for music(on an ipod) and it will feel like you are at a concert.
- Using the Dental Vibe along with the Wand for the kindest injection you will EVER experience. Our nervous patients love it.
A group of genuinely kind, caring people who are ready to work with you and help you. An approach designed to your specific needs. These and still other solutions have made each day very satisfying to our entire team and has put a smile on our patient’s faces.
