Anxious about dental treatment.
However for some patients fear is a real barrier to seeking or receiving dental care.
At the practice we have considerable experience at treating anxious patients.
When we examine the previous dental history of ‘phobic’ patients we often find that theirs is not an irrational fear. Patients often relate that they have had a bad experience; for example the tooth was not fully numb during treatment.
By discussing their concerns and what the cause of the bad experience was we can deliver the most appropriate care. This may simply involve providing a relaxed environment with television screens above the treatment chairs and a patient lounge. There is constant assurance that the patient is in control of the treatment at all times.
We apply topical anaesthetic gel to the gum prior to an injection.
We have the option to use articaine local anaesthetic which offers a deeper longer lasting numbing than the traditional lidocaine.
Please don’t let your nerves get in the way of a healthy happy smile, please call our Reception team on 01457 837361 who will arrange your initial free consultation.
