A visit to the dentist can be daunting and we want you to feel comfortable during your stay. If you feel anxious about having treatment or seeing a dentist, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we can help to make your visit as stress-free as possible.
We endeavour to provide all our clients with a positive experience and will do all we can to help you relax. As part of anxiety management is the option of sedation therapy. This is not general anaesthetic but does induce a complete state of relaxation. The patient will not lose consciousness and the procedure is much less risky than general anaesthetic. Sedation prevents pain and anxiety and the patient will have no recollection of the procedure.
Anyone who suffers from anxiety or dental phobia would benefit from this treatment, as it is often these people who leave oral problems to get worse. Many come to us with tooth decay and gum disease because they are too fearful to get treatment. The treatment also works for people who have sensitive teeth and are unable to sit through treatments that cause a lot of pain and discomfort.
Hypnotherapy sessions are also available at the practice (by appointment only), so why not try a different approach to your fears and anxieties and make your visit to the dentist stress free.
