Better oral health
Don’t avoid the dentist any longer.
Many people are scared of the dentist, so the important thing to remember is that you aren’t alone. It’s important not to let your fear of the dentist stand in the way of your oral health. When you’re ready to overcome your dental phobia, we’ll be here to help you.
There are lots of steps we can take to make a trip to the dentist less scary for our patients. The first thing to remember is that procedures should never hurt. If you have had a painful procedure in the past, let us know so we can pay close attention to your local anaesthetic. Some people need more local anaesthetic to block the nerves, so we can work with you to find this balance.
Communicating with your dentist is one of the best ways to overcome your fear. Let them know what you are concerned about so they can adjust your treatment according to this information. For example, if you just want to know what is happening, our team can communicate throughout the treatment to let you know what to expect. But if you'd rather switch off and think about something else, you could wear headphones during the treatment to help you to relax.
