We understand that some people may feel frightened of the dentist and suffer from anxiety but whether this is due to a bad experience from the past, a fear of needles or a genuine phobia of dental treatment; we are here to help. We always encourage nervous patients to visit our practice for an informal chat first, to enable us to understand their concerns and anxieties. We will make you feel calm and relaxed and we hope our calm and sympathetic approach, developed over many years of experience, starts the process of rebuilding any lost confidence.
Oral sedation is available to patients with an extreme dental phobia. With oral sedation the patients don’t fall asleep, they just become relaxed enough to receive dental treatment they need without having a traumatic experience. Referral to a hospital for general anaesthetic can also be arranged.
