Nervous Patients

Nervous Patients

Are you a nervous patient?

Many people suffer from anxiety when they think about a trip to the dentist.

Whilst we appreciate that a visit to us isn’t always top of your wish list, if anxiety stops you visiting the dentist then it can lead to problems and not just gum disease and tooth loss. We regularly scan for mouth cancer and we can also see other general health issues that manifest themselves in the mouth.

So, why visit Gerrards Cross Dentist if you are nervous?

We take the care of nervous and phobic patients very seriously and offer special attention. If you or someone that you know suffers, then we suggest that you call us for a friendly chat. If it is the sight, smell and sounds of a dental practice that you find off-putting then we invite you to visit us and talk and become comfortable with the surroundings even before any treatment.

Intravenous (Conscious) Sedation

Sedation dentistry involves performing dental treatment on a patient in an environment that’s stress and anxiety free. It’s a way for dentists to help patients overcome common dental phobias.

Conscious sedation is a procedure that makes use of sedative medications to produce a relaxed experience for the patient, Unlike General Anaesthesia where a patient is completely unconscious, asleep, and unable to respond, patients under Conscious Sedation, are able to respond to commands. We have specially trained dentists at our practice to carry out sedation.

They can help you tolerate dental treatment to restore your oral health. In many cases we have been able to help patients overcome their dental anxiety and receive treatment without sedation after having their trust restored.
