How we soothe dental phobia
We are proud to have an experienced team, which has expertise in caring for nervous patients. It is incredibly important to us that our clients feel comfortable when they’re with us, and we use a range of techniques and treatments to try and minimise pain and encourage patients to relax. Our dentists have training in treating anxious patients and we also invest in the latest technology.
We offer treatment under sedation, which is suitable for patients who require more complex courses of treatment. Sedation is not like general anaesthetic, as it does not make you lose consciousness. You will simply feel relaxed and a little bit drowsy and you won’t feel any pain. Sedation can be beneficial both during and before treatment, as you’re likely to feel calmer if you know that you won’t feel any pain during the procedure.
We also offer drill-free dentistry and painless injections for patients who have specific fears of needles, injections and the dreaded dental drill. With drill-free dentistry, you can get the treatment you need without having to worry about the feel or sound of the drill. If you’re scared of needles, this is usually due to a negative experience in the past. With The Wand, we can guarantee painless injections and hopefully, enable you to undergo treatment without any anxiety. The Wand is a computer-controlled device, which regulates the speed of the flow of fluid through the needle. As well as preventing pain, The Wand also looks a lot less menacing than a conventional injection.
If you’re anxious about going to the dentist or you’ve been putting off having dental treatment for a long time, don’t suffer in silence. Our friendly, experienced team is ready to help make scary dental trips a thing of the past.
