How can we help you?
Choosing a family dentist is an important part of your healthcare. We will address all enquiries in a personalised and friendly way when you contact our clinic directly. In the meantime, here are a few of the most common questions we hear from patients.
When you seek dental advice at Dentist in the Park, we feel it is our responsibility to inform you of any dental conditions and offer all of your treatment options. Of course, the choice is yours to make. Since we offer a number of alternatives to address most oral health issues, we hope you will find one that provides you with a solution.
If you choose not to follow through with any treatment, we will respect that as well. It is important to remember that minor dental conditions can progress when left untreated. While we cannot predict the future, we have seen dental decay develop into an infection that requires an extraction and a broken tooth split down the middle.
Prevention Is Key
Our goal is to treat oral conditions early when they are easier and less expensive to treat. To make it easier and more manageable, we can prioritise treatment in a way that allows you to address the most immediate needs first and phase out the remaining treatment procedures over the next months or even years.
At Dentist in the Park, we believe all dentistry can be a painless experience. By using some of the most advanced anaesthetic delivery methods and sedation with nitrous oxide, we can perform nearly any procedure with little to no discomfort.
The Wand® Anaesthetic System
We begin by applying a topical anaesthetic to the area for improved comfort.
The pain from anaesthetic comes from delivering it into the tissue. The Wand® uses computer assistance to warm anaesthetic at the right temperature and speed for comfortable injections. It also vibrates, soothing the nerves during application. The result is an injection that is easier than ever to tolerate. Most patients don’t even realise that we have completed the process because it is so comfortable.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
For patients who feel a little nervous about visiting the dentist, we offer nitrous oxide sedation. Nitrous oxide is the mildest and safest form of sedation. We deliver it through a small nose mask in a blend with oxygen. Dr. Quill controls the sedation level throughout your procedure to ensure you stay relaxed.
One of the big benefits of nitrous oxide sedation is that it enters and leaves your system quickly, making it possible for you to resume normal activities within minutes after we stop delivering the sedative.
