Anxiety Relief

  • Do dental visits cause you anxiety or a feeling of fear?

    Do not worry if you feel this way. We meet patients on a daily basis who feel exactly like you. It is quite common for the dental profession to hear that people hate going to the dentist. You may have had a previous bad experience, treated quickly or roughly, or genuinely do not like the sound of the drills or the cold water sprays that cause sensitivity during a dental clean appointment. We understand your anxiety and have designed Zen Dental Studio to help you.

  • What are the solutions for dental anxiety at Zen Dental Studio?

    At Zen Dental Studio, we try to take a humane approach towards dental anxiety. Anxiety is deep rooted and we have trained extensively in advanced techniques to help you reduce your anxiety levels.

  • How much does my health insurance cover?

    Majority of the times we can check your expected out of pocket costs on the day of appointment with our HICAPS instant claims machine so that you have peace of mind.

What is Nitrous Oxide?

Nitrous oxide is a gas, commonly known as ‘happy gas’ or ‘laughing gas’. Giving nitrous oxide is a way to help reduce a person’s pain and anxiety during dental treatment. You will breathe the gas through a small mask on your nose.

Do I need another person to drive me home?

No, Nitrous Oxide does not require you to be assisted for driving after your treatment .

The effect of the gas is diminished after the gas has been appropriately stopped and you feel normal after around 5-10 minutes of stopping the procedure. Both Dr. Priyanka and Jay are certified to provide Nitrous Oxide relative analgesia at Zen Dental Studio. However, if you feel more comfortable, you can bring along someone to help you home.

Is Conscious sedation and general anaesthesia the same thing?

Conscious sedation is a term that involves nitrous oxide, pills or twilight sedation. It is different to general anaesthesia and can be done at Zen dental studio. Even with deep sedation, you won’t be unconscious, as you would be with general anaesthesia.

What is Twilight Sleep Sedation?

This is different to general anesthesia. With twilight sedation, the recovery after a procedure is much shorter and quicker. This has to be administered to you by an anaesthetist which we will organise for patients looking for sedation dentistry solutions. This mild anaesthetic will allow patients to feel fully relaxed throughout the dental procedure, and even undergo a short nap throughout the procedure. You must organise for someone else to drive you home after sleep dentistry. Depending upon the procedure, the level of sedation may range from minimal (you will feel drowsy but be able to talk) to deep (you probably wont remember the procedure)

Why is twilight sedation much more expensive than Nitrous Oxide laughing gas?

Twilight sedation is administered by an anesthetist. The fees are paid directly to the anesthetist for their time, part of which can be claimed via medicare. We organise their visit and times and they will be present throughout the procedure.

We give you all the options:

At Zen Dental Studio we believe in providing accurate and detailed information of the procedure and the options available along with the risks, benefits and the financial costs.
