If you are scared of the dentist you are not alone.
This is the vicious circle of dental phobia“Scared Of the Dentist “: whatever caused the phobia initially (be it painful or traumatic experiences, hurtful remarks, or something else) leads to avoidance, which in turn means no access to professional dental care, usually resulting in poor oral health, and at some stage the results of this “neglect” are perceived to be so embarrassing that it’s totally impossible to see a dentist, even when in pain. If shame, embarrassment and guilt are keeping you away from seeing a dentist, you’ve got plenty of company!
First of all – it’s highly unlikely that any dentist hasn’t seen teeth which aren’t as bad as or worse than yours.
Dental techniques have improved so much over the last few years, that modern dental treatment can now be completely painless. Despite this, most people still feel a little nervous at the thought of going to the dentist.
If you have not been to see a dentist for some time, you will probably find that things have improved a lot since your last visit. The general attitude is likely to be more relaxed, the dental techniques and safety procedures will be much better, and the equipment will be more up to date.
Our dentists have a number of techniques for treating patients who are scared of the dentist.
Treatments can be carried out by:
- air abrasion technique ( a quieter, less emotionally stressful approach),
- sedation such as Nitrous or happy gas,
- general anaesthetic
- numbing gel and
- using the wand instead of the traditional needle
