Anxious or scared about visiting the dentist?
Do you avoid dental work for fear of pain? Do you know that if you delay dental treatment, a simple issue can potentially develop into a major one? The good news is, you don’t have to live with this dilemma.
Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way for patients to overcome their anxieties in order to receive much-needed dental care. At Kilmore Dental & Specialist Centre, we offer different forms of sedation.
Happy Gas (Nitrous Oxide)
Nitrous oxide, commonly known as ‘happy gas’ or ‘laughing gas’, is a time of sedation that leaves the patient conscious yet unable to feel pain. Administered through a small nosepiece that sits on the nose, this is a simple sedation method with a speedy recovery time.
Penthrox™ is the leader in immediate pain and anxiety relief. Penthrox™ is a revolutionary inhaled pain relief product which will provide you with immediate relief.
The combination of an inhaler device and a pharmaceutical agent, Penthrox™ has been used by Australian healthcare professionals for the provision of immediate pain and anxiety relief for over 30 years. When used as directed, it’s safe, effective, and quick. Penthrox™ will provide you with strong pain relief while at the same time helping you feel more comfortable. You are in control of the level of your relief simply by inhaling Penthrox™ through the Penthrox™ Inhaler.
