Being afraid of the dentist is both more common and more serious than you may think.
Unfortunately, it affects many patients and can cause them to avoid treatment and leave dental issues to progress until they become more severe.
At The Walden Dental Clinic, we try to help patients who experience anxiety or worry in whatever way we can. Our staff are trained to help you understand the treatment you are about to undergo and support you through it.
Whatever your fear, we are here to help. We will answer any questions you may have and treat you with empathy and compassion. There’s no need to be embarrassed or afraid of seeming anxious.
As health professionals with years of experience, it is our mission to help you to relax and feel at ease.
For patients who do not feel comfortable receiving dental treatment, we can offer different levels of sedation to make the entire process a more relaxing experience.
- Local anaesthetic, to relieve any pain or discomfort
- Oral medication to help you relax
- Inhalation sedation
- Intravenous sedation
These will help you to receive treatment in a calmer and worry-free way.
Speak to us for more information, we don’t want your fears to prevent you from having a healthy set of teeth and gums and are always happy to help.
