In some cases, the fear of the dentist can arise from poor childhood experiences. For that reason, it is likely this ingrained fear will always surface in the run up to a dental appointment.
However, we strongly urge you not to delay an appointment. Do not let the pain worsen – this is usually a sign the situation is deteriorating. Once your teeth reach a certain level of decay, they will become infected. This may mean you require more invasive treatment.
Delaying treatment due to fear will only lead to further pain but, rest assured, our caring staff will always take care of your mouth.
Our approach is to let you be in control but, at the same time, we will lead you through a pain-free and comfortable experience.
You may dictate the speed of the procedure and we will offer you a break when you feel overwhelmed.
One of the best methods to alleviate fears is to ensure you are fully informed, which is why we will take time to keep you informed every step of the way.
If you are particularly nervous – or wary of dentists – please schedule an obligation-free visit to our clinic where we will take you through the steps at our caring and comfortable practice.Back to treatments
