How nervous dental patients can overcome their fears to get back to oral health

Are you a nervous dental patient? Adams Dental in North London can help. We believe that everybody deserves a smile that is happy and healthy, and while we fully understand and empathise with the fears of those who are anxious or phobic about visiting the dentist, we also believe that in the modern day and age anxiety needn’t be a barrier to treatment. Our whole team is committed to working with you to help you get back to oral health – and stay there.

nervous-dental-patientsFear of the dentist has numerous causes, and we are confident that we can help you overcome all of them. Some people have had a negative experience of treatment in the past, whilst others have specific triggers such as the sound of the drill, the sight of a needle, or the sounds and smells of a practice environment. Others think they will be judged because their oral health has fallen into poor condition.

You need not fear judgement at our North London practice; all we want to do is help you get your oral health back. Our practice environment is modern and relaxing, and our principal dentist, Dr Ricky Adams, is Dental Phobia certified to recognise his work with nervous dental patients.

We have a number of options for nervous dental patients in North London, and will be happy to talk you through all of them in a relaxed and informal chat away from the dentist’s chair. Every nervous dental patient’s needs will be unique, so we will work closely with you to find the best way to assist you in overcoming your fears.

North London nervous dental patients: your options

Hypnotherapy

Hypnosis can help you to get treatment, and can furnish you with techniques to manage your condition going forward. We have a qualified hypnotherapist at our North London clinic.

Sedation dentistry

Dental sedation induces a very relaxed state. You will be awake, so able to cooperate with your dentist, but will feel no pain, just peace. You are likely to remember little to nothing about your procedure when it is complete.
