Don’t Let Dental Fear Prevent You from Having a Healthy Smile
Do you feel anxious or particularly nervous at the thought of visiting a dentist in Harrow? You’re not alone as dental fears are extremely common and we know that some people have such high levels of anxiety over the thought of even having a check-up that they will fail to visit a dentist regularly. They may only seek out an emergency dentist in Harrow when in substantial pain. Unfortunately by this time it is often impossible to save a badly infected tooth and this can reinforce dental fears even more. The good news is that if you haven’t visited a dentist for a while then you will be pleasantly surprised to find out how much dental care has changed and there is an increasing emphasis on making sure patients have a pleasant and relaxing time when visiting a dental practice.
This is certainly the case at Imperial Dental Care as our experienced and friendly dental team pride ourselves on our caring attitude and we are particularly sympathetic towards anyone who suffers from severe dental anxiety. If you have dental fears and anxieties then we can help you overcome them.
Taking the First Step towards Better Dental Health
The first step is to give us a call to talk to our friendly receptionist. Please let them know that you are a nervous patient so our dentist in Harrow can take appropriate action to help put you at ease. By chatting with you, we hope to discover the root of your fears as sometimes it is due to a previous bad experience while other times people will have learned their dental fears from their parents.
If you feel comfortable, we will want to gently examine your mouth to assess your current dental health. Afterwards we can put together your customised treatment plan detailing any procedures we feel will be helpful for you. If the thought of undergoing any sort of dental treatment leaves you feeling sweaty palmed then there is no need to worry, as we will sit with you to work out the best course of action. You might be amazed at how much we can do to help you relax and overcome your fears. For a start, your dental treatment will not be painful as we will make sure you have plenty of local anaesthetic to keep you comfortable. If you are already in dental pain then you will find your tooth feels much more comfortable once treatment is completed.
People who are particularly nervous may benefit from extra sedation and this can be quite useful if you need a substantial amount of treatment. With sedation dentistry you will feel extremely relaxed and afterwards you may have no recollection about your treatment. Once your dental health has been restored, we hope you will feel able to come and see us at regular intervals for check-ups and cleanings. The great thing about regular dental check-ups is that you are much less likely to require any treatment and gradually we hope that every positive visit to us will help to lessen your dental fears.
