For different people being ‘afraid of the dentist’ has different meaning.
Some people have definite fears about pain or certain types of treatment, others don’t like the idea of being out of control, some people find the smells and sounds upsetting and others worry about stories that they’ve heard from friends and family.
The good news is that our dentists comprehend their patients’ fears and can do a lot to make dental check-ups and treatment an acceptable, normal part of life. We get that nervous patients above all want to be listened to and not rushed or pressurised, that’s why we take our time and explain all aspects of suggested treatment.
We offer patients both types of sedation: Intravenous Sedation or Inhalation Sedation. Both treatments leave you feeling relaxed, even though you are still awake. You are unconcerned by your surroundings and recovery time is quick.
