At Gosnells Dental Centre we treat anxious patients on a regular basis. We understand that each patient is different, and some patients can be anxious when receiving treatment. As we have our own personal phobias, we can relate to patients who have phobias of needles, metal instruments, the sounds of a dental practice or dentists themselves.
We approach anxious patients with care and patience. By taking procedures at your pace and by explaining the procedure in detail, we work as a team with patients to achieve the end goal of good oral health.
For our patients who do require a little extra to help achieve that goal, we offer in-house Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) to help relax anxieties. This can also be used on children as young as 7 years of age.
We can also organise for twilight sedation in our practice with an anaesthetist. Please call 9398 4786 to book a consult with our dentists.
