Compassionate Care for Anxious Patients at Kareela Family Dental

At Kareela Family Dental, we understand that dental anxiety is a common concern for many individuals. We are committed to providing exceptional care, tailored to the unique needs of each patient. Our patient-centric approach ensures that even those with dental anxiety can receive the dental treatment they require comfortably and with peace of mind. In this blog post, we will explore our options for anxious patients, including sleep dentistry with IV sedation, oral sedation, and the use of happy gas.

IV Sedation: A Relaxing Solution

Dental procedures can be daunting for those with severe anxiety. For such patients, we offer Intravenous (IV) sedation, a safe and effective method to induce a deep state of relaxation. IV sedation allows you to remain conscious but relaxed throughout the procedure. It’s administered intravenously by our trained professionals, ensuring you experience minimal discomfort or anxiety during your visit.

Oral Sedation: A Pill for Peace

Oral sedation is an alternative option for patients who prefer not to receive an IV. With oral sedation, you’ll take a prescribed medication before your appointment, which will help you feel calm and relaxed during your treatment. Our team will monitor you closely to ensure your safety throughout the procedure.

Happy Gas: The Gentle Approach

For those who have mild anxiety or just want a little extra comfort during their dental visit, we offer nitrous oxide, commonly known as “happy gas.” This odourless, colourless gas is inhaled through a small mask, inducing a state of euphoria and relaxation while keeping you fully aware. It’s an excellent option for those who want to take the edge off without the need for deeper sedation.

This is a great option for our Kareela children’s dentistry!
