It’s very common for patients to experience nerves and anxiety when they’re faced with the prospect of having dental treatment. Dental phobia is one of the most common fears, and even those who don’t have a phobia can develop feelings of anxiety when they’re sat in the waiting room. At 24 Hour Emergency Dentist, we understand that many patients feel apprehensive, and we are committed to doing everything possible to eliminate pain and create a relaxing, calming environment.
How we provide pain-free treatment
Many patients experience nervousness because they have a fear of pain. Sadly, dental treatment tends to have a bad write-up, and people often feel anxious because of stories they’ve heard or read. If you go into an appointment thinking that it’s going to be really painful, it’s no wonder that you feel uneasy. We are here to allay your fears and help you to feel more comfortable. We use advanced treatments, technology and techniques to reduce pain, speed up treatment and help you to stay calm while you have treatment.
Our dental team is experienced in caring for nervous patients, and we can cater for your requirements. If you’re nervous about having emergency dental treatment, we can provide local anaesthetic to prevent pain, and we may also be able to offer sedation for more complex procedures. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to speak to your dentist. It is our mission to help you to get over your fear and make you feel as confident and calm as possible.
If you do have treatment under sedation, this will make you feel drowsy, but it will ensure that you don’t experience any pain during the procedure. Sedation isn’t the same as general anaesthetic and it is used widely in medicine and dentistry to alleviate anxiety and keep pain at bay. Your dentist will explain exactly what is going to happen, and they will be happy to answer any questions you have.
Dental anxiety can make patients avoid the dentist for long periods of time, which can often increase the risk of injuries and infections. If you find yourself in a situation where you need urgent help, don’t be afraid to get in touch. We are here to help you and we can provide pain-free, hassle-free treatments that will put a smile back on your face.
