Nervous dental patients: your treatment options in North London

Our principal dentist, Dr Ricky Adams, is Dental Phobia certified, and our whole team is committed to working with nervous dental patients, treating you with care, dignity, and respect at all times. If fear about treatment has caused your oral health to be less than perfect, let us help you to get it back into tip-top condition; we promise you we will never be judgemental.

Here are some of the ways we have helped nervous dental patients just like you at our North London clinic:

Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy is a very effective method for many nervous dental patients to get treatment. It furnishes you with self-management techniques that enable you to keep up your progress after your initial course of treatment is complete.

In-chair entertainment

With milder forms of dental anxiety, many people benefit from being able to watch a film or listen to their favourite music or audiobook during treatment.

Intravenous sedation

Intravenous or IV sedation uses sedative drugs to induce a feeling of deep calm and relaxation. You will not be asleep, so can cooperate with treatment, but you will remember little to nothing about it afterwards, and most importantly will not experience pain.
