I Want a Comfortable, Painless Experience at the Dentist

At Refresh Dental Care your comfort is our priority which is why we do whatever
possible and available to ensure your appointment is painless. We offer all of the
following

Needle Free Injection (Injex)

  • The INJEX System uses a specially designed spring loaded device held
    against the gum which has a micro opening of only 0.18 mm diameter
    through which the local anaesthetic is administered under dosed pressure to
    the underlying tissue – virtually painless and exactly where it is needed
  • The technique is useful on all primary (baby) teeth and most adult teeth
  • The result is an almost painless needle free local anaesthetic with almost
    immediate onset which also reduces the treatment time
  • Since only 0.3 ml of local anaesthetic is administered with each dose
    (compared to 2.2 ml in the traditional anaesthetic cartridge), the lips, cheek
    and tongue do not get numb, thereby reducing the chance of painful biting
    after the procedure .
  • There are also fewer risks of side effects due to lower doses of anaesthetic

 

Happy Gas (Nitrous oxide sedation)

  • Happy gas is a colourless non-flammable gas, with a slightly sweet odour
    and taste. It is used in dentistry for its anaesthetic and analgesic effects
  • Also known as “laughing gas” due to the euphoric effects of inhaling it, it is
    often used as a conscious sedative during a dental visit
  • The gas is administered with a mixture of oxygen and has a calming effect
    that helps phobic or anxious patients relax during their dental treatment
  • Because it is a mild sedative, patients are still conscious and can talk to their
    dentist during their visit

 

Twilight Sedation

  • Twilight Sedation is a form of anaesthetic in which medications are used to
    make you feel very relaxed and comfortable and oblivious to your
    surroundings
  • Unlike general anaesthetic that is used in large hospitals for major
    procedures, it does not involve having a breathing tube placed down your
    throat
  • The level of sedation in Twilight Sedation can be varied according to the
    needs of the procedure and the wishes of the patient
  • Patients find Twilight Sedation much more enjoyable than general
    anaesthetic
  • Most people find that they fall asleep while having Twilight Sedation – but are
    easily aroused
  • Twilight tends to make you forget what happens as well

 

Oral Sedation

  • Oral sedation is generally a prescription that is given prior to your visit
  • It usually will be an option of Valium or Halcion
  • This technique is generally used for many hours of treatment in one day or
    for anxiety control
  • You will be required to have a driver drop you off and pick you up the day of
    your appointment
  • The effects of this medication will hinder your ability to perform everyday
    tasks, so plan to have a clear schedule that day

It is our practices pleasure to also provide the following special touches for your
comfort;

  • Minimal to no waiting time when you arrive for your appointment

  • 3 treatment rooms with plenty of natural light overlooking serene courtyard
    gardens with tranquil water features
  • Our in-chair entertainment system allows you to watch TV or choose from our
    selection of DVDs, listen to a CD, radio or our extensive itunes library, with
    optional headphones, while receiving treatment
