Are you one of the many people who have a fear of dentists?
Have you personally experienced a less than pleasant dental visit? Or do you simply feel anxious about the idea of dental treatment?
At Redbank Dental Centre we have several different options which have proven to be of great help to others just like you!
Our team of Oral Health Professionals are happy to be able to offer our patients, both young and young-at-heart, the means to comfortable dentistry.
We believe dentistry should be accessible to all, so if you are wanting to book in for Preventative Dental, Cosmetic Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry (general or complex), but are holding back due to anxiety – please be assured that we have options to help you!
Inhalation sedation options that we are able to offer our patients are: Nitrous Sedation (happy gas), or Penthrox.
Many people have heard of “happy gas” before, but may not know much about the alternative option of Penthrox – this alternative has been used in Australia for over 30 years and is a popular choice as it is self-administered through an inhaler (under supervision) which can help you feel more confident and secure. With either of these options you will still be awake and in control for your dental visit, but without the high level of anxiety you may have previously experienced!
Both of our inhalation sedation methods are safe and effective, our dental practitioners can discuss these options with you further should you feel it is something you would like to try.
Please be aware that if inhalation sedation is something you wish use during your visit our reception staff must be made aware of this when you make your booking, as additional time will be allowed for it, and if Penthrox is the anxiety relief option of choice, then you must also bring someone with you who is able to drive you home.
