What Are the Pain Management Options Available at Royal Park Dental?
One in six Australian adults are afraid of going to the dentist. This fear often stems from the pain that is commonly associated with dental work. However, with the advancements in modern dentistry and the various dental pain management options available, experiences for patients in the dental chair are now as pain-free as possible.
At Royal Park Dental, our patient's comfort, safety and satisfaction is always at the forefront of our priority list. We will always aim to do anything possible to remove the worry and fear surrounding your dental appointments. Through this commitment to our patients, we pride ourselves on being able to provide a number of pain management options to help make your experience at Royal Park Dental an activity that is comfortable, gentle and thorough.
We have listed the range of different pain management options available at Royal Park Dental below:
Numbing Gel for Painless Injections
For some, majority of their dental fears stems from the needle used to administer a local anaesthetic.
To help alleviate this fear we offer our patients the option of having a topical anaesthetic applied to the injection point beforehand. By doing so, we are able to numb the gums allowing the local anaesthesia needle to be administered freely and without any pain.
Our team will always work alongside you to ensure that you are feeling safe and comfortable throughout the entire procedure. Therefore, resulting in a more relaxed and enjoyable dental experience for you.
There are a number of examinations that don’t require any anaesthetic at the dentist. However, some procedures will require you to numb the affected area to ensure that you are not experiencing any discomfort throughout your appointment.
We understand that the needle used to administer local anaesthetic can present anxiousness in some individuals. This is why our dentistry team will work alongside you to acknowledge your fear of needles and find the best solution to ensure you are as comfortable as possible. Our expert dentists use distraction techniques and gentle administration of the local anaesthetic to calm you and ensure that the process is as pain-free and comfortable as possible.
Nitrous Oxide Gas
In some cases, it is necessary that the patient is sedated with the use of Nitrous oxide, more commonly known as ‘laughing gas’.
Nitrous oxide gas is administered through the use of a nose mask. As a patient, you are left coherent and still have the ability to hear, see and respond to actions happening around you minus the anxiety.
This safe and commonly used sedation system can be used on patients of all ages with little to no side effects. This pain relief approach will minimise severe gagging and will leave you feeling back to normal within 5 minutes of the gas supply being switched off, allowing you to drive home without the need for supervision.
