F.E.A.R. Forget everything and run. Face everything and recover. These 2 acronyms get bandied about in certain circles as a way to name that horrible feeling that can stop us achieving so much in life.
Our teeth are so important to our quality of life, and yet, many people, who are scared of going to the dentist, would rather their lives diminished than receive the help they need to have healthy teeth and gums.
If you are one of those people and are now at the point of needing to replace your teeth, please don’t let your fear of the dentist stop you reaping the enormous benefits that come with dental implants in North London.
At Adams Dental in North London, we firmly believe that fear should never be allowed to stop you, but we also understand that dentophobia is a very real condition that affects many people.
Here to help
If you are a nervous dental patient, please don’t let that put you off having dental implants in North London with us. We have been trained in helping nervous patients and have created a practice environment to help soothe you from the moment you step in the door.
We have various ways to help you overcome your fears, from being able to talk to us about them, to hypnotherapy and coaching, to oral and intravenous dental sedation.
When you have dental implants in North London, they are fitted under local anaesthetic. This helps numb any pain. However, it’s still oral surgery and you may choose to have sedation.
Oral sedation is a tablet that you take in the morning before you come to the surgery for your procedure. It will relax you but not fully sedate you, and you will be able to leave under your own steam afterwards.
Intravenous sedation delivers the drug straight into your bloodstream, either into your arm or the back of your hand. This fully relaxes you almost instantly, and while you will be able to respond to the dentist, you will find you don’t remember much about the procedure afterwards. You’ll also need someone to drive you home.
