Nervous Patients

At Appleton Park Dental, we understand some of our patients may be anxious about their visit. Our team of dental professionals is highly trained to help our nervous patients address and overcome your anxieties.

Our comfortable chairs, inviting waiting and treatment rooms, and friendly staff will do everything we can to put you at ease.

Why do people experience dental anxiety?

There may not be one specific cause of your dental anxiety. Sometimes, a person develops a fear during childhood which continues into adulthood.

Some people have more sensitive teeth than others. Others may have a strong gag reflex or perhaps a fear of needles. Dental phobia can develop for a variety of reasons, but there are also many ways to overcome it.

How can I overcome dental anxiety?

Nervous patients often find it helpful to discuss any treatments or procedures at length, so they know what to expect. We will explain everything in detail, allowing you to prepare yourself for the procedure mentally. Other ways you can overcome your anxiety include:

  • Arriving at your appointment early
  • Bringing a companion for moral support
  • Wearing headphones to listen to music
  • Structuring your treatment in a way that is manageable for you

What about children?

We urge you to make regular appointments for your children from an early age. Not only is this important for their oral health, but it also familiarises them with their dentist, the practice environment, and all its sights, sounds, and smells.

Early familiarisation has been proven to help reduce the risk of developing a dental phobia. These patients are more likely to have regular check-ups and seek treatment in the future, significantly improving their oral health.

If you are nervous about visiting the dentist call us on 01925 266 488 and speak to a member of our team about any concerns you may have so that we can get you on the road to good oral health.
