Treatments - Nervous Patients

Can I alleviate my fear of the dentist?


Some people are so frightened of the dentist that they avoid dental treatment altogether but today’s dentists are sympathetic and in recognising that some patients experience real anxiety, they have developed new techniques and approaches to help. In fact if you check the Yellow Pages or dental websites you will find dentists who specifically mention treatment for anxious patients.

Modern dentistry is very customer focused and as such, a range of sedation and relaxation techniques have been developed to help anxious patients overcome their fears.

Our dentists have a wealth of experience working with anxious patients. They will take the time to discuss your specific concerns and address them one by one at your own pace. A number of our patients avoided visiting the dentist for over 20 years, but with the time and patience of our experienced dentists, they are now regular attenders with healthy mouths and a confident smile.

Will I ever feel differently about visiting the dentist?

It is highly likely! As you get to know and trust your dentist, hygienist and other members of the dental team at your practice, your fears will dampen. In time you will come to see your regular visit to the dentist as just another part of your normal life.
