Easing your concerns
Dental anxiety can range from mild apprehension about attending a check-up, right through to a serious phobia, which can make even just sitting in the dentist’s chair an extremely difficult experience for sufferers.
We are very sympathetic towards patients who may feel nervous about visiting the dentist and aim to make appointments as relaxing as we can. We have plenty of experience in dealing with anxious patients and helping to allay their fears.
If you are particularly worried, some of our practices offer IV sedation, which can help you feel completely relaxed about receiving treatment but still allows you to communicate with the dental team. Following treatment, you will also remember very little about the procedure.
A fear of the dentist can lead to complete avoidance of appointments, but it is vital to see your dentist on a regular basis to maintain good oral health. If you attend routine check-ups, we can swiftly spot any problems and treat them before they get any worse. This will also avoid the need for more complex treatment.
