It shouldn't! At North Brisbane Dental Clinic, our dentists are kind and gentle. We've all been on the receiving end of dental treatment and certainly remember how nerve wracking it can be, even when you have complete trust in your dentist. If you're in the hands of a dentist who doesn't really care if they hurt you or not, it's going to hurt. When you're in the hands of a dentist who cares, we take the extra effort to do things more gently. In the right hands (ours!) dental treatment can be completely pain free.
We take our time when preparing patients for their procedures – both in the consultation and treatment. We explain everything thoroughly and review medical history records for our patients to ensure that we can provide comfortable treatment.
Every patient receives dental work of utmost precision and excellence with a minimum of discomfort. Anaesthetic takes a bit longer to reach full effectiveness for some people than others. We make sure to leave plenty of time to achieve maximum comfort for your procedure.
We put our patients in charge. If you ever feel uncomfortable or like you need a break, you can simply let us know and we will stop and address your concerns. If you feel any discomfort at all, at any time, please do let us know so we can rectify that. For complex procedures, such as root canals, we use the latest equipment for faster and more precise treatment.
We understand that many people feel apprehensive about dentistry. Our friendly and professional team puts even our most fearful patients at ease. For patients who need a little help relaxing, we also offer nitrous oxide sedation. Nitrous oxide is a mild sedative that is safe for most patients. It leaves the system quickly so you will feel normal within a few minutes after your appointment.
