L&R Dental

I am afraid of the dentist and needles. Will it hurt?

Many patients have anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist. If you are nervous about your procedure, we believe you will find our Toowoomba dental clinic a friendly and comforting environment that puts you at ease.

Our dentists care deeply for our patients and prioritise comfort. As a private dental clinic, we are free to take our time helping patients develop trust with our team and to cater to your needs in a personal way.

Looking after patients’ health and wellbeing are all part of our commitment to outstanding dentistry.

Many patients who fear pain had a negative experience in the past. We have learned so much about how different people react to anaesthetic and the time it takes people to become fully numb. Before we even use a needle, we apply a topical anaesthetic to numb the area before we inject the medication that completely numbs the area.

If you need a little additional help relaxing, we also offer sedation with nitrous oxide, or happy gas, to take the edge off. It wears off quickly so you can return to work without worry.

Let us know if you are feeling on edge about your procedure so we can help put your mind at ease while we care for your smile.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
COVID-19 UPDATE: Following government and ADA guidelines, we can now offer routine dental treatment whilst ensuring we continue to address the level of risk of transmission in our practice. We will continue to take extra initiatives to ensure we keep our patients and team members healthy. We thank you for your cooperation with these protocols including answering pre-appointment screening questions, use of alcohol based hand rub and temperature check on arrival and EFTPOS payments.
