Nervous Patients

We understand how nervous dental treatments can be for some patients. That is why at Healthy Dental we can offer various methods to make your appointment as comfortable and as relaxed as possible.

Happy Gas

Happy Gas, also often called "laughing gas" has been used in dentistry for many years and is very effective in promoting relaxation in the nervous patient. It is a mixture of Oxygen and Nitrous Oxide that is administered via a mask placed around the patient's nose. It has a quick onset of action and also wears away quickly after the procedure.

Sleep Dentistry

For more extensive procedures or for the highly anxious patients we offer sleep dentistry. Sleep dentistry is where the patient is asleep for the duration of the treatment so that you do not feel or remember anything. It is performed under the care of an experienced and qualified anaesthetist who works along-side the treating dentist for maximum patient comfort.

Penthrox

Also known as the green whistle it has a quick unset of action to achieve relaxation and patient comfort. It comes as a handheld device which the patient inhales before and during the procedure. It allows the patient to control how much and how often they inhale to achieve the level of relaxation they are comfortable with and works affectively for most routine dental procedures.
