Nervous Patients

We understand that many people are worried about visiting the dentist. Some common reasons for being anxious are:

• Being scared that treatment will hurt
• Had a bad experience in the past
• Feeling vulnerable and out of control
• Don't like the sounds or smells

We have had great success at the practice in helping patients overcome their fears and worries associated with dentists. We will listen to your concerns, so please discuss any anxieties you have.

If you feel uncomfortable during treatment, the dentists are happy to stop - just signal by raising your hand. Injections can be made more comfortable by using a topical anaesthetic gel that is rubbed into the gum before giving the injection.

Whatever your worry, be sure that when you come to the practice you will receive a friendly and sympathetic welcome.
