Does the thought of a visit to the dentist fill you with fear so much that you constantly put off making that call? You may feel worried like many of our patients have felt in the past. Sometimes, just one bad experience or listening to somebody’s bad experience is enough to put you off for life but rest assured, we’re here to help you.
At Eccleshill Dental we try our very best to make sure your experience is a relaxed and pleasant one. Our Dentists take your care and feelings very seriously and take pride in finding solutions to ensure your visits are as relaxed and as comfortable as possible.
We want you to be involved in the decisions regarding your treatment as much as possible and will explain everything to you in as much depth (or not!) as you want.
If the thought of particular treatment takes you out of your comfort zone please don’t despair. We can offer dental sedation which is a pleasant and relaxing way to overcome your nerves and anxiety.
We use a medicine in a vein in the back of your hand or in the crease of your elbow which can help you cope with your treatment. It works by helping you enter a state of deep relaxation while you can sit comfortably without worries whatsoever. It isn’t a general anaesthetic where you go to sleep. Whilst you’re sedated you will still be conscious and will be able to talk to the dentist and nurses and they can chat back with you when needed. The majority of patients experience some amnesia and don’t remember much about the treatment at all.
If you are interested in taking that first step to visit a dentist in a long time or you wish to chat about sedation for treatment that you may be worried about, please call us on 01274 633406 and we will happily book you in for a relaxed consultation.
