How to Deal with Dental Anxiety

Does the very thought of seeing a dentist make you feel anxious? You’re not alone, and lots of people have dental fears that might initially seem hard to overcome. We can help you! Our dental team is extremely compassionate, and we will work with you to ensure you can successfully deal with dental anxieties. Common fears include fear of needles, being afraid of the drill, fearing pain, and being embarrassed about bad teeth. Some people simply feel overwhelmingly helpless in the dental chair.

Overcoming Dental Anxieties and Fears

When you come to visit us here at Complete Dental, we can talk with you to help identify your fears so we can begin working towards a solution. If you feel more comfortable, bring a trusted friend or family member with you. One way we can assist you is by ensuring treatment always progresses at a pace that feels comfortable, and we use plenty of anaesthetics, so you shouldn’t feel a thing. Also, you can stop treatment at any time just by raising your hand, and we will regularly check that you feel able to continue, so you are always in control of your treatment.

When you get in touch with us, please let us know how you feel so we can find the right solution to assist you.
