It is quite common for patients to come to us after many years of not going to dentist, as they have been too scared to make an appointment. Don’t worry, you are not alone! We have found that a bad experience as a child (or even as an adult) can often lead to a life long fear of going to the dentist. Dentistry has come on in leaps and bounds over the years and we are able to offer modern day dental treatments that can be carried out in a painless and enjoyable way, giving you the treatment you deserve.
To begin with, we are always happy to see new nervous patients for a free consultation where we can discuss potential treatments in a non-clinical and non-scary environment. We find that once patients meet our friendly dentists in this sort of situation, they are much more comfortable to get to the next stage, which does help to overcome their fear.
We find that one of the most popular treatments we are able to offer is dental sedation. Sedation allows us to put our patients into a deep relaxed state where they will be awake, but not consciously aware of their surroundings and more importantly, the treatment that is being carried out. You will be able to respond to our questions and talk, but you will not remember the actual treatment afterwards – allowing for a very easy and stress free way to receive treatments.
If you are worried about your teeth and even more worried about the thought of having dental treatment, please do not hesitate to call us today and book your free consultation. We will go at a slow pace to suit your needs and will always be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
