Don’t Let Dental Fear Prevent You from Having a Healthy Smile
Has it been a while since you visited a dentist in Clacton? Perhaps you feel too anxious or too nervous to seek dental care. It is a very common problem and is something that we have a great deal of experience with here at Clacton Dental Care. We pride ourselves on being able to help nervous or anxious patients overcome their dental fears and there is a great deal we can do to ensure treatment is comfortable and easy to cope with.
We Will Work with You to Help You Overcome Your Dental Fears
If you do feel anxious about dental visits then please let us know when you first contact us as we will be more than happy to help you. You will find our dental team is extremely easy to chat to and once we know you have anxieties then we can take the appropriate action to help you. We are all extremely gentle but we take extra care with nervous patients. It’s likely our dentist in Clacton will want to have a quick chat with you to try to find out why you feel nervous so we can decide how best to help you.
With some people it can be a previous bad experience at the dentist while others may have learned their fears due to anxieties passed on by their parents. Whatever the cause, there is always a solution. Quite often one thing we find very helpful is to make sure people know they are fully in control when sitting in the dental chair. Just being able to know they can stop dental treatment at any time can be enormously comforting. For people who feel more nervous, we are able to offer additional sedation.
About Sedation Dentistry
We offer an extremely safe form of sedation called intravenous sedation. By administering a sedative intravenously, we can ensure you are kept comfortable right throughout your treatment. With intravenous sedation you will feel extremely relaxed and possibly quite sleepy but you will still be able to talk to us. After your appointment is over, it’s highly likely that you will remember little if anything about what is happened. It can be an excellent way to receive more treatment during one comfortable appointment and can be great for anyone who needs quite a bit of dental care to restore dental health. Our dental team has been specially trained to administer this type of sedative and you will be continually monitored at all times during your appointment to keep you safe.
Lots of people have already benefited from intravenous sedation and once you have restored your dental health, then we hope you’ll gradually begin to feel more comfortable about visiting our dental practice. We aim to make sure that every single appointment provides you with a positive experience and hope eventually you will be able to overcome your dental fears. Once you have a healthy smile then it should be quite easy to maintain it and we can show you how. That is the really nice thing about having good oral health and hopefully it will just be a matter of seeing you every six months for regular check-ups and hygiene appointments to keep your teeth and gums in great condition.
