People of all ages are affected by anxiety related to visiting a dentist. If you are nervous or afraid of the dentist, it is likely that you haven’t been to the dentist in a while and you may be worried that you will need a lot of treatment. Rest assured that you will always be in control and you will decide what you can cope with at any one time.
Nervous patients no longer have to suffer through a nerve-wrecking dental appointment since IV Sedation was introduced. This type of sedation dentistry is ideal for extremely nervous patients who not only dread the thought of going to the dentist but who have avoided making an appointment as a result. For some patients, treatment under sedation is the best and most appealing offer.
But first, call your dentist and book a check-up with him, and please tell them that you are nervous and ask any questions you feel are important in order to put your mind at rest.
Our dentists, dental Nurses and receptionists are trained to understand and support nervous patients and to help you through your whole journey from booking your appointment to finishing your treatment.
Your check-up appointment gives you the opportunity to meet the dentist and discuss your fears, without the worry of having treatment carried out. Once the dentist has had a look in your mouth and perhaps taken some x-rays, he or she will discuss what treatment, if any, you require.
If you have not visited a dentist for a long time, other issues may come into play. We believe everyone has the right to be pain-free, and to have the confidence to show off their smile, do the first step and call your dental practice, we are waiting for you to help you to get more confident on your smile.
