Many people avoid regular dental visits due to stress or anxiety about some of the procedures.
Dental sedation is a method we can adopt to treat anxious patients who have a fear of visiting the dentist – often referred to as dental phobia.
Visit our surgery, have a look around, to meet the team and see the environment. Tell the dentist that you are anxious so they know beforehand.
Choose an appointment early in the morning to avoid having time to dwell on it.
Your first appointment at Aesthetika Dental Studio will simply be an oral health assessment and a chance to get to know your dentist.
On your visit it’s best to agree on a sign with your dentist that you need a break and want them to stop. It can be something simple, like popping your hand up and will help you feel more in control.
Most of our dental phobic patients start gradually with a scale & polish and then work up to more extensive treatment once they have built up their confidence and trust with one of our dentists.
If you would like further support or advice on any of the above, please do get in touch with a member of Aesthetika Dental Studio team – we’ll be happy to help.
Amazing dental practice. I am the worst, nervous, scared beyond belief patient and this team have been amazing each time. Dealt with my nerves and made what is a traumatic experience in the past with other dental practices a lot easier and calmer. All from the moment I step in and get greeted by Lynne (hope that’s right) to meeting with either Chris or George. Thank you to you all and I highly recommend you to anyone and everyone.
Very very good practice. All the staff I have encountered have been polite, friendly and professional. They have taken into account my dentistry phobia and kept me calmer than any of my previous dentists. I can honestly say that I don’t mind going to the dentist now.
