For Nervous Patients

At Jones Dental we understand that some people don’t look forward to dental appointments and can find the thought of visiting the dentist daunting. This feeling is not uncommon, with many patients telling us their fear of the dentist comes from a poor dental experience when they were younger.  

If you are ever feeling nervous or anxious about seeing the dentist please let us know.

Jones Dental specialises in the tretament of nrevous patients

Our whole team is here to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible. Our staff, dentists, therapists and hygienists are highly experienced and are here to help you throughout your dental journey, from booking an initial appointment to following up with you afterwards.

We understand that when you’re worried about going to the dentist, even picking up the phone can be difficult. That’s why at Jones Dental we’ve made sure our dental practice is as welcoming as possible. Here are some of the ways we can help you to relax:

Taking time to listen to your concerns and explaining all treatment options, specific procedures and expected outcomes from your treatment. If you need extra time to decide on your preferred treatment option that’s ok.

Wireless headphones and music system for use during treatment to cancel out any external noises so you can focus on relaxing to the music.

Our dentists use numbing cream before administering a local anaesthetic injections to make your experience as pain free as possible.

In chair gas sedation known as ‘happy gas’ can be provided to make you feel calm and relaxed during treatment.

If you would prefer not to be conscious during treatment we can arrange treatment under general aesthetic while you ‘sleep’. Your dentist can determine if you are a suitable candidate for this type of treatment at your initial consultation. We also understand visiting the dentist for the first time as a child can be a little daunting so we have a dental therapist on staff who works specifically with children to make their time at the dentist as positive as possible. Having a fun and easy first experience at the dentist can make a lifetime of difference for your child.

Gas Sedation or ‘Happy Gas’

At Jones Dental we understand some patients can find dental treatment stressful, even with normal local anaesthesia. For this reason we offer other options to help make our patient’s dental experience more comfortable.

Gas Sedation or ‘Happy Gas’ (relative analgesia) – where the patient is fully awake but very relaxed.

Gas Sedation can be used during treatment at all four of our dental clinics. Gas Sedation can help relax patients of any age and is used frequently at our surgeries to make the dental experience more comfortable.

If you are ever feeling nervous or anxious about seeing the dentist or our oral health therapist please let us know. Our whole team is here to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible.

General Anaesthesia

At Jones Dental we understand some patients can find dental treatment stressful, even with normal local anaesthesia. For this reason we offer other options to help make our patient’s dental experience more comfortable.

General Anaesthesia – where the patient is asleep.

Treatment under General Anaesthesia is carried out at Wollongong Private Hospital or Shellharbour Private Hospital and is available for all ages. It is used with adults who may choose to have their treatment under General Anaesthesia or in more complex surgical procedures. It can also be very useful when children are too young or too nervous to cope with extensive dental treatment.
