It is completely understandable that some people are scared of seeing the dentist. We appreciate that dental phobia is something that affects a lot of people. Fear can manifest itself differently for each person. Some may just feel anxious at the thought of having dental treatment, whilst others are scared of injections in the mouth, the sound of the drill or even the smell of a dental practice.
Fear of the dentist is nothing to be ashamed of. You may have had a bad experience in the past, or may be worried or embarrassed because you haven’t been for a while and know that you need some work doing. We are not here to judge you in any way, we are only here to help you, taking the stress and worry out of seeing the dentist.
We understand that some people are anxious about their treatment and need a little support to help them overcome their apprehension.
Whether this is for a prolonged course of treatment or a particular procedure, we find our sedation techniques allow us to treat the majority of patients at the practice without the need for external referrals.
We pride ourselves on our experienced staff providing caring treatment to our patients, or other dentist referrals, in a relaxed and friendly environment.
What is Sedation Dentistry?
Sedation, or sleep dentistry, is an effective way to treat the most nervous patients. The effect is relaxing and calming, but doesn’t prevent communication between the dentist and you, the patient, so treatment can still be carried out easily.
We offer a thorough assessment of your physical condition, such as weight, age and medical history, before suitability for this kind of treatment is determined. But don’t worry, all this will be discussed during your stress free consultation with us.
This is a prescription of medication that can be taken as one tablet the night before, one in the morning and another one hour before treatment. You will be a bit drowsy, so it is very important that you do not drive and are accompanied to your appointment.
This is available in our practice. This is a very safe form of sedation which is suitable for children and adults. Recovery is quick and you are able to drive afterwards.
This is very popular if you are really nervous or phobic of dental care. The sedation is provided by a trained professional and can be deep or light. Many of our Same Day Smile cases have this form of sedation, as with this you are really unaware of having had treatment.
In certain cases, we can also use other medications with the sedation which can provide enhanced pain relief and reduce any post-operative swelling. Again, a chaperone is essential and we can provide this service if required.
There are many ways to combat pain, and we follow guidelines from fearcentral.org – one of the world’s leading websites dedicated to ‘fear free dentistry.’
Our claims are based on fact and our patients provide the proof. We are so convinced that you will feel no pain, we will refund your money if you do.
No matter what cosmetic dental treatment you have in mind, there is always a pain free method that will help gain your confidence back painlessly, easily, quickly, and affordably.
