ANXIETY REDUCING TECHNIQUES

Fear of dentistry is the greatest deterrent to people who seek dental treatment today. Fear of the needle, the drill, the sounds and the unknown are the main reasons.

In combating dental phobias we employ several proven techniques:

LAUGHING GAS

Nitrous Oxide sedation (laughing gas). Nitrous oxide is a gas you can breathe in and in combination with oxygen it provides relaxation and pain killing within 2-3 minutes. It is fed through a tube to which a nasal hood is applied and you breathe through it. The depth of sedation can be controlled by the operating dentist and is dictated by you. You remain conscious throughout the procedure, with a feeling of euphoria and relaxation. We found it works very well for individuals with dental phobias that would otherwise avoid going to the dentist.

THE WAND

Computer assisted anesthesia "The Wand". Dr. Kranias uses a computerized devise, called the Wand to provide efficient and almost painless dental anesthesia. The flow rate of the local anesthetic is controlled by a computer. This allows for the solution to be deposited "drop by drop" reducing the "sting" of the injection to a minimum. The injection is guaranteed to be slow and steady, therefore gentle and comfortable. The “Wand” is a great tool in combating dental fear.

PATIENT EDUCATION

Communicating and educating the patient is also a great tool in reducing anxiety. We will listen attentively and answer any questions you might have. We will use educational videos, pictures, pamphlets and hands on models to explain procedures and techniques and describe different treatment options. In this way, we make you part of the decision making and you feel at ease.
