Sensitive care for patients with dental anxiety

It is estimated that up to 1 in every 10 people avoid dental visits due to anxiety or a dental phobia. The roots of these fears can often be found in unpleasant childhood experiences and the related stress can be overwhelming for those affected.

It is crucial that patients do not let this prevent them from receiving necessary dental care or achieving the smile they desire. Many individuals endure discomfort or settle for a smile they are unhappy with unnecessarily.

We are well aware of how challenging the issue can be for some patients. We always listen carefully to our patient’s concerns and will go the extra mile to help them feel more comfortable and reassured.

Conscious IV sedation

Conscious IV sedation is a great option for those who feel anxious or apprehensive about visiting the dentist. It places patients in to a very relaxed state so that they feel more comfortable during treatment.

This significant reduction in stress and anxiety is achieved while still maintaining consciousness, allowing the patient to communicate with the dentist.

How we can help nervous patients

Nervous patients FAQs

Why is it essential not to avoid dental treatment?

Neglecting dental problems can result in their progression into more severe issues over time, which may require more extensive and costly treatment in the future.

Those who delay seeking dental treatment are at risk of developing gum disease. Initially, this may cause discomfort in specific areas and result in halitosis, but ultimately it can result in the loss of teeth.

Will it impact my overall health if I don’t go to the dentist?

The condition of a person’s oral health is now widely recognised as having a significant impact on general well-being. Avoiding dental visits can negatively affect overall health, and has been associated with heart disease, lung disease and shorter life expectancy.

Are there any other factors to be aware of?

Emotional and mental health can also be affected by ignoring dental health issues. People with stained, misshapen or missing teeth can become very self-conscious about their appearance, particularly when talking or smiling.

This can lead to a loss of confidence, both socially and professionally.
