Feel at ease with our dentists specialising in anxiety in Lake Haven
At Advance Family Dental, we understand that many patients experience anxiety when it comes time for a dental check-up or procedure, which is why we take a caring, patient-first approach to oral health and dental care. We are proud to be one of the top dentists for scared patients in Lake Haven, NSW — we will find a solution to calm your anxiety and ensure you have a positive experience at our dental clinic.
Communication is key when it comes to easing your anxiety. Our dentists will explain each and every step of the treatment process in detail and keep you informed throughout your appointment. We never rush the process — we will pause treatment at any time on your signal. You have the control to stop and take a breath whenever you need to.
If you suffer from severe dental anxiety, we can provide sedation dentistry or “happy gas” to place you in a deep state of relaxation without needles or injections. We can complete more work in one session than possible under a local anaesthetic in the dentist’s chair and reduce the number of appointments required to complete your treatment.
Contact Advance Family Dental to discuss your concerns and book an appointment today. We’ll match you with a kind, caring dental anxiety dentist in Lake Haven.
Available services with our dentists for scared patients
Regular check-ups are important to prevent tooth decay and maintain your dental health. As a rule, we recommend booking a check-up once every six to 12 months as a minimum, and we understand that this can be a nerve-wracking concept for those who suffer from dental anxiety.
The good news is that our Lake Haven dentists offer anxiety management solutions for a range of dental health services, including but not limited to:
- Cosmetic treatments
- Dental implants
- Dental extractions e.g. wisdom teeth removal
- Dental surgery e.g. root canal treatment
We can even provide sedation dentistry for appointments with our dental hygienist if that is what you need to relax and achieve better oral health.
Whether you need advanced dental treatments or a simple check-up, our dentists will ensure you feel at ease in the chair. Contact us to discuss treatment options and book an appointment with one of our dentists specialising in anxiety in Lake Haven.
What is happy gas?
“Happy gas” is a type of sedation dentistry that can help ease dental anxiety and make a trip to the dentist visit more comfortable. Our dentists specialising in anxiety in Lake Haven offer this as one of their solutions to help nervous patients through essential dental treatments and procedures.
Happy gas works by inhaling a mix of oxygen and nitrous oxide through a face mask. You’ll feel a sense of relaxation and well-being when you inhale the gas. You may feel light-headed and dizzy, and your mouth will feel numb.
Once the gas is turned off, the effects will wear off quickly, and you will be able to drive yourself home and resume normal everyday activities.
