At McCloy Dental Caboolture/Morayfield, we believe in pain free dentistry. This philosophy has stood us in good stead with our patients, it being one reason our practice has grown so fast. Our patients describe themselves as cowards, dental phobic, subject to panic attack, or just neurotic before we treat them, but develop confidence with us as the treatment progresses. We feel that theses apprehensions stem from events which have occurred in someone’s life time, and are real reasons for patients to be anxious. For that reason we treat each patient as an individual and work around their particular problems.
We have available to us Relative Analgesia (RA), and Local Anesthesia (LA) to treat each patient appropriately. We also believe that giving the patient control of treatment progression reduces their anxiety.
Caboolture Pain free dentistry starts with proper diagnosis. Appropriate treatment and maintenance to maximize the longevity of the restoration minimizes the overall work a patient receives. We start by discussing your needs and tailoring appointments to suit each individual. We make sure patients are sitting comfortably with dark glasses to reduce the glare from overhead lights. We have overhead television and headphones so patients can watch their favorite programs or listen to music, instead of being aware of the procedure around them.
An application of topical anaesthetic such as lignocane will numb the mucosa or gum so that pain free injection can be completed. We use the highest quality syringes which are engineered to deliver a dose of anaesthetic with minimal site trauma. The local anaesthetic is also of highest quality, to minimize chemical reactions at the injection site. We warm the solution to body temperature to ensure that there is no sensation felt by the patient. Injecting slowly means the first sensation felt is a tingling as the anaesthesia usually works.
Our practice of delivering pain-free dentistry allows our nervous patients to overcome their apprehension. Regular checkups then become an easy routine rather than the dreaded exception.
