  • Anxiety in dentistry and what can be done about it

    Don't panic!

    You’re sitting in the waiting room, your palms are a little sweaty and your heart is beating a little faster than normal. You’re waiting for someone to call you through for your dreaded 6 monthly appointment at the dentist. The room, the smell, the person poking around in your mouth. You like your dentist, you have nothing against them but you hate what they do!

  • Dental Sedation Methods in Depth

    White pills and a bottle

    We recently discussed anxiety in dentistry and the options to provide anxiety relief in the dental clinic. In this article, we’ll describe the methods in greater detail and discuss which types of procedures would be suitable for the form of sedation available.

    The most common medications we use for light sedation are Diazepam (Valium) and Penthrox (Methoxyflurane). Valium falls under the medication class of “benzodiazepines” and has been used safely for over 50 years.
