Care for Anxious Patients

woman in dental visit scared of dentistAt Exceptional Dental Care, we’re proud to work with patients of all needs and walks of life. Here, we want you to know that you’ll be cared for and looked after, with your best interests always coming first.

We regularly see nervous and anxious patients in our care. When they come to us, it’s not uncommon for them to feel hesitant about receiving care with us–and that’s ok. It’s our job to put you at ease, and we’ll do everything possible to help you relax and be comfortable.

How We Can Help

Keeping up with regularly scheduled dental care is important to your oral health and your overall health, as it can help reduce the need for complex care down the line. While some patients may be nervous, we can help.

We’re happy to offer different sleep dentistry options including:

  • IV Sedation – involving a third party, a medical professional administers effective sedation through an IV so the patient remains calm and comfortable.
  • Green Whistle (Penthrox) – This gentle inhalation anaesthetic is self-administered, allowing patients to receive rapid, fast-acting pain relief.
  • Oral Sedation with Diazepam – During oral surgery, this medication helps provide anxiety relief by calming nerves and relaxing patients.
  • Pre-appointment prescriptions – In some cases, anxiety relief may be needed before your visit. In these instances, though limited, we can provide a prescription for anti-anxiety medication prior to your appointment.
