Anxiety Management


At Irwin & McCabe Dental Group we understand the experience of going to a dentist or undergoing dental treatment can be nerve-wracking.

As part of our commitment to providing an exceptional level of care we hope to make your dental experience less stressful.

Several techniques are available for easing anxiety associated with dental work, including:

  • Sleep Dentistry– Intravenous sedation administered by a specialist Anaesthetist is available for those people who are particularly nervous.
  • Systematic Desensitization– The gradual removal of fear by making the patient aware of their success in coping with small increases of treatment complexity.
  • Distraction– TV and headphones are available to provide an alternative focus.
  • Laughing Gas– A relaxant and mild anaesthetic which is inhaled during the dental procedure to alter perception.

It is our intention to help wherever we  can, so please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your experience with us more comfortable.
