Nervous Dental Patients
We appreciate that dentistry is not most people’s favourite pastime. We also appreciate people are not all the same and that a variety of approaches is necessary. This may involve gradually building confidence in the dentist or hygienist, giving the person control to stop treatment at any time, allowing the patient to watch what is going on, listening to music or relaxation recordings on headphones or watching movies or favourite television programs on video headsets. Sometimes the answer is referral for NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) or hypnotherapy. At other times we use medications such as pre-operative sedatives or we organise a qualified doctor to administer sedation during treatment.
In short, we work with you to find the right solution for you as an individual. There is a solution to your fear. We will take the time to help you find it.
