Making Nervous Patients Feel Comfortable

21st April, 2015

When you are frightened of visiting your dentist we understand it can’t be easy for you if you suffer from nerves whenever you attend an appointment. It can be terribly hard for you to settle and stop fidgeting in the chair. More over, it can also make it very difficult for your dentist to get to work on you.

The only way to get the best treatment you need is to find some common ground between yourself and your dentist and the best way of doing this is to talk about what it is that makes you nervous.

Get to the bottom of this and it will give your dentist a better idea of how to calm you down before being treated. A local anaesthetic will stop any pain during dental procedures.

If you are really nervous about a difficult treatment, you can ask for sedation, There are clinics you can pay privately or you can be referred to the hospital. However, by doing a little research beforehand, you will find that modern dental techniques cause very little discomfort. Talking things through can be very therapeutic, We also have a television above where you are being treated which we find very helpful for taking your mind off treatment.
