Articles Why You Should Tell Your Dentist When You’re Nervous
Most people feel slightly anxious before a dental appointment, but if you suffer from severe dental anxiety, it can be a frightening ordeal. We have extensive experience in caring for patients who suffer with dental phobia and are able to use the latest techniques to ensure you feel comfortable and help you gradually overcome your nerves.
What to do if you feel nervous
Dental phobia is very common, especially in those who’ve had negative experiences in the past. However, we’re here to help and it’s beneficial for us to know if you’re feeling even the tiniest bit worried. If we’re aware you suffer with nerves or anxiety, we will adapt your treatment process to take this into consideration and ensure you feel relaxed at all times. Our team is incredibly friendly and we will always help you feel calmer when you visit our practice.
How we can help
Our team work with nervous patients on a regular basis and are able to use various techniques to make going to the dentist a less daunting experience. We’ll take time to answer your questions and offer in-depth explanations about treatments and procedures.
We also offer no-drill dentistry, which is of great benefit to those with a fear of drilling or needles. At Harley Street Dental Studio we are also able to carry out treatment under sedation, which means you’ll have a calm, serene experience from start to finish.
Sedation is a technique commonly used in medicine and dentistry and involves carrying out treatment under sedative medication. This won’t make you lose consciousness, but it does induce a profound state of calm. You’ll be conscious, but you won’t feel any discomfort and it’s likely you won’t remember much about the procedure afterwards.
If you’re a nervous patient, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Please don’t hesitate to pop in or call us for more information on how we can make your dental experience a positive one.
