It’s nearly Halloween and we know that many of our patients fear the dentist far more than ghostly ghouls or wicked witches.

We strive to make every patient feel relaxed and comfortable. If you’ve been putting off going to the dentist or you need treatment and you’re dreading it, we’re here to show you that there’s absolutely nothing to worry about.
How we can put your mind at ease
If you suffer from anxiety when faced with a trip to the dental clinic, or you’re nervous about having a particular procedure, we can put your mind at ease. Our team is always here to answer questions and make you feel more confident about having treatment and we can also discuss options with you such as using The Wand or having treatment under sedation. The Wand is a magical device, which enables us to offer painless injections. Many people are anxious about having treatment because they don’t want to have an injection due to painful experiences in the past. This is usually the result of fluid flowing through the needle too fast or in sporadic bursts. The Wand controls the flow of fluid, so there’s no risk of any pain at all.
Sedation could be an option worth considering if you suffer from severe dental fear or you need a complex procedure. When you’re sedated, you won’t feel any pain and you’ll feel completely relaxed.
If you’re anxious about going to the dentist, we promise you that there’s nothing to fear. Call us today to arrange a consultation.
