At Westfund we understand that some people have had bad experiences with dentists in the past. Our aim is to try and rebuild your trust through gentle re-introduction to simple treatments. To date we have been very successful in restoring many patients’ faith in the profession.
It is important to know that you are in control of your treatment and that we will only move at a pace that you are comfortable with.
In some cases, nitrous oxide sedation is useful for managing dental phobic patients. It is more commonly known as “happy gas” or “laughing gas”. Prior to dental treatment a mask is placed over your nose and the nitrous oxide is administered until you feel sufficiently relaxed. Once you are relaxed your dental treatment will commence.
