If you are scared of the dentist you’re not alone. If shame, embarrassment and guilt are keeping you away from seeing a dentist, you’ve got plenty of company!
Dental techniques have much improved over the last few years. Modern dental treatment is now more comfortable. If you haven’t been to see a dentist for some time, you’ll be happy to know that things have probably improved a lot since your last visit. Our general attitude is more relaxed, dental techniques and safety procedures are better, and the equipment has advanced.
We do have a number of special 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
Unfortunately there’s a vicious cycle with being scared of the dentist. Whatever caused the phobia initially, (be it a painful or traumatic experiences, hurtful remarks, or nothing at all), leads to avoidance of seeing the dentist, which in turn means no access to professional dental care, resulting in poor oral health. At some stage this can results in dental problems that patients are embarrassed to see a dentist about – even when in pain.
First of all – it’s highly unlikely that any dentist hasn’t seen teeth which aren’t as bad as or worse than yours.
Everyone on our team has experience with years in the Dental Industry, both Interstate and within Queensland, so as our patients rest assured that you’re receiving quality treatments and great advice.
