Easing Your Anxiety with our Dental Treatments
Dental Anxiety Explained
Do you get anxious when visiting the Dentist?
You are not alone with studies showing…
“1 in 6 Australian adults, and 1 in 10 Australian children feel the effects of Dental anxiety”
Dental anxiety is a condition in which you suffer any form of discomfort, nervousness, fear and even panic at the thought of going to the Dentist.
In more extreme cases, it can manifest into very real symptoms.
It is natural to feel a little bit anxious about visiting your Dentist.
However, when the situation gets out of hand, it can hold you back from keeping up with your oral health.
Over Time, The Effects of Dental Anxiety Can Become Overwhelming – Stop the Cycle by Talking to Your Dentist

One of the most important factors in overcoming Dental anxiety is good communication between you and your Dentist.
When you feel informed and in control throughout a visit, you are typically less anxious.
Not Only are we willing to discuss your anxiety and work out a series of hand signals you can use to help ease your concerns, but we also offer sedation techniques (discussed below) to help ease your fears about treatment.
My Gentle Dentist wants you to have every opportunity to feel comfortable and secure during your visit.
Whether it’s a routine cleaning or a more in-depth Dental procedure, we want you to take the time you need to ease your anxiety and maximise your comfort.
My Gentle Dentist encourage patients concerned about anxiety to schedule an appointment to discuss your worries and the ways we can help.
This appointment can be a stress-free occasion where you talk to us about the causes of Dental anxiety, as well as the methods we have available to help ease those concerns.
When you are prepared going into the Dentist’s office it:

Your 3 Options to Ease Anxiety During Dental Treatments
My Gentle Dentist provides all aspects of Sedation Dentistry care for different types of Dental treatments that are available at our Arana Hills practice to all patients.
Note: Not all patients are suitable for sedation Dentistry.
We will help identify if one of our sedation methods is a suitable choice for you.
1. Happy Gas
Happy gas (also known as laughing gas) can help you relax during your Dental treatment.
A mask is fitted to your face, and when you breath the happy gas it takes effect within a few minutes and wears off quickly.
You will feel relaxed but will still be awake.
Happy Gas Can Help You Relax During Your Dental Treatment
You can talk to the Dentist, and hear what they say to you, but you will not necessarily remember everything once the visit is over.
For most people, the relaxed sensation created by happy gas sedation is very pleasant.
Occasionally people do not like the sensation it creates, and other options can be considered.

We will provide all the advice you need and guide you as to whether happy gas is the best option to relieve anxiety for your next Dental treatment.

2. Penthrox Sedation
Penthrox Sedation is a self-administered inhaled analgesic handheld device used by My Gentle Dentist for relieving anxiety.
The Penthrox is very commonly used in ambulance services and is also looks like the whistle.
Penthrox provides immediate pain relief and decreases the anxiety levels for patients, when used by the Dentists during their Dental treatments.
Penthrox has been used in Australia for more than thirty years.
It contains gases, which allows the patient to breathe in those gases.
Its effectiveness depends on how much the patient inhales the gas.
With the Penthrox device the patient is in control of the device and the patient can use as required and feels relaxed.
Penthrox can be used in most cases of the Dental treatment in relieving anxiety.
If you are interested in Penthrox sedation for your Dental treatment, please contact us.

Managing Your Dental Anxiety
Fortunately, there is a solution for patients with Dental anxiety.
You do not have to live all your life, afraid of seeing a Dentist.
Here are some measures you can take:
- Talk to your Dentist about it – once they know you have fears, they are better placed at coming up with solutions for you. It is why oral sedation Dentistry at My Gentle Dentist exists for patients with Dental anxiety.
- Take a deep breath – even before you visit a Dentist that can put you to sleep near you, take several deep breaths as you await your turn with the Dentist.
- Distract yourself – listen to music, watch a movie, or jot in a journal
