NERVOUS PATIENTS

If you’re nervous, anxious or afraid of the dentist, you can relax at Ringley Park Dental Practice, safe in the knowledge that our caring team is highly experienced in offering dental treatment in a kind and gentle manner. Treating nervous patients is something we deal with on a daily basis.


At the first consultation, we will discuss your concerns in full and tailor your treatment accordingly. Your first appointment is intended to be a consultation without any treatment being carried out whatsoever. It can sometimes be a good idea to bring a friend or family member with you if you need some extra support.

  • THE WAND ANAESTHESIA SYSTEM

    If you're worried about injections given to numb the area around your tooth, you needn't worry any longer. Our new computer-assisted anaesthesia system is called The Wand because it almost magically eliminates any pain associated with injections.

    Not only is The Wand virtually pain-free, but it's extremely precise, which means it numbs only the area the dentist will be working on, and you won't leave the practice unable to speak or drink properly.

    We're so pleased to be able to introduce this dental revolution to our patients - it truly transforms the dental experience!

    If the thought of treatment still seems daunting, we have experienced anaesthetists available who can sedate you to make the experience more comfortable. Using this technique, you can fall into a deeply relaxed, but conscious state, while you have your treatment.

  • TWO TYPES OF SEDATION

    Conscious RA sedation

    Inhalation sedation (also known as relative analgesia, RA, happy gas, or nitrous oxide) is a very pleasant form of sedation that can be used during dental treatment.

    The nitrous oxide/oxygen mixture is given by means of a small mask that is placed over the nose for you to breathe. Once the treatment is stopped, the gas is eliminated from the body within three to five minutes. Thereafter, you should feel normal very quickly.

    Intravenous Sedation (IV)

    IV sedation is designed to take away your anxiety and is given by an injection, either in the back of your hand or in your arm.

    IV sedation makes you feel relaxed, drowsy and unaware of the treatment, although you are still awake and able to co-operate with the dentist. The effects of the medication can take some time to wear off and therefore you will need to have a friend or relative to take you home afterwards.

    To ensure complete patient safety, an experienced physician closely monitors the administration of IV sedation.
