At All About Teeth in Townsville we understand that undergoing dental treatments can often cause some patients high levels of dental anxiety and fear. This can often cause patients to skip their dental appointments and increase their risk of oral diseases like tooth decay.
We aim to make each dental treatment calm, comfortable and anxiety-free with our pain management options.
Diazepam is a prescribed medication in the benzodiazepine pharmaceutical family. This medication works by altering the chemicals in your brain that cause you to feel anxiety.
When a patient is feeling jumpy, on edge or anxious and the neurons in their brain are over-firing, diazepam comes in and gives these excited receptors a hug. This will then calm these receptors down and give you a feeling of relaxation.
For many procedures in our All About Teeth practices, we use a topical numbing gel. This topical anaesthetic is sufficient for a wide range of treatments to make the experience much easier.
Topical anaesthetic compounds will often have much higher strengths than injectable local anesthetics so they can be effective when applied to mucosal barriers in the mouth.
Penthrox sedation is available on request.
