Anxious Patients

Anxious Patients

Our goal at Baldivis Family Dental Care is to make your dental experience and treatment as comfortable and relaxed as possible. Our team has created a caring environment in our modern practice to help you feel at ease.

Our dentists are gentle, understanding and will work to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible.

A previous negative experience can often cause a trip to the dentist to evoke feelings of anxiety and fear, and that is why our team has a special interest in anxiety free dentistry. There is no longer any need to dodge a scheduled consultation and risk missing out on necessary treatment. At Baldivis Family Dental Centre we can help those who suffer a dental phobia to receive quality dental care in a comfortable, anxiety free environment.

In addition to our caring team, we offer the following service to help alleviate anxiety as well as for those who have to undergo lengthy appointments:

Penthrox
Patients can also be offered Penthrox inhalers for self medicated, rapid pain relief. These easy to use inhalers give you, the patient, full control over pain relief.

Intravenous (IV) Sedation
Commonly known as Sleep Dentistry, IV sedation is frequently used in dental treatment for those patients suffering from specific medical conditions, phobias, anxiety or just generally don’t like the sounds and smells associated with dental treatments. IV sedation is also a commonly used option for patients requiring particularly complex treatments or multiple treatments in a single session.

Under IV sedations patients will experience a feeling of deep relaxation, where time passes very quickly. Upon awakening patients will remember very little, if any of their treatment.

We ask that patients who request IV sedation notify our friendly team when booking your appointment to ensure that a qualified professional can be booked to visit the practice upon your appointment.

General Anaesthetic
For those that require something more than our other options we can also provide General Anaesthetics through our local hospital.

Our dentists support anxious patients throughout their entire dental journey by taking time to listen to their concerns and thoroughly explaining each procedure and all options before treatment is commenced.
