Pain Free Dentistry
QuickSleeper 5 is an interesting new dental anesthesia technique, of which patients and dentists could only dream – up until now. We're delighted to be among the first users of this highly modern and comfortable form of dental anaesthesia.
QuickSleeper 5 with it's numerous advantages can be used for all dental procedures, enables us to anesthetize a single tooth or several teeth with small amounts of anesthetic serum. Numbness of lips, tongue or cheek does not occur, only the tooth in question becomes completely sensation free. The anaesthesia is completly pain free and immediate, there is no need to wait for numbness to set in. This reduces overall time spent by the patient in the dental chair.
Dr. Naghibi has been trained to apply this newest and most modern form of anesthesia in dentistry, making traditional injections obsolete.
Our patients can immediately take advantage and avail of this new modern acquisition in our surgery.
Fear of injections is now, finally, a thing of the past.
Is there anything that can help me with my fear of the dentist?
Yes. Some people are so frightened of the dentist that they will not go for dental treatment. They can overcome their fears with relaxation or sedation. Our dentists are sympathetic about these feelings, and you can ask our dentists about these ways to help.
What is sedation?
We offer an intravenous or IV sedation. This is given by injection, either in the back of your hand or in your arm. The dose will depend on the amount of treatment needed and the length of time it will take to complete.
How will IV sedation in the surgery affect me?
You become drowsy and unaware of any treatment, but you are still able to co-operate with the dentist. The effects of sedative medicine take some time to wear off and your dentist will tell you how long the drugs will take to clear from your body. You won't be able to drink alcohol, drive or work machinery during this time.
How does relaxation work?
When we are faced with a challenge or something we're afraid of, such as a visit to the dentist, our bodies produce substances, which raise our anxiety. However, we can train our bodies to work against this anxiety, by learning to relax. It's not possible to be anxious and relaxed at the same time, so learning relaxation helps control our anxiety.
