Modern dental methods make for stress-free visits

Fear of the dentist has once again been in the media spotlight recently and the dentists at Drayton Dental Care would like to remind everyone that our modern dentistry methods make patients’ visits calm and almost completely pain free.

 

Overcome your dental anxiety

Around 50 per cent of our population does not visit the dentist – and a quarter of those fail to do so because they are too afraid. These statistics cause us great concern.

Our team is proud to have helped many dentally phobic patients overcome their dental anxiety – and even look forward to their dental appointments!

If you visit our website, you will find testimonials from once nervous patients who appreciate our friendly and gentle touch. Here are just a couple:

“I used to be a nervous patient but not anymore. If I have a dental problem I look forward to coming here because I know I will be treated with great care and skill. My dentist, Debbie, always puts me at ease, explains everything clearly and, together with her dental nurse, makes the whole visit calm and pleasant. I cannot speak highly enough of the treatment received here.” Carol Knock

“Best ever injection, pain free – I did not feel a thing. I was told step by step what was going to happen, so I was totally at ease. Great friendly service – I should have gone to them earlier. For all my treatment the cost didn’t hurt either. In the past I have paid more on the NHS and felt unhappy.” Beryl Hill, crown and fillings 

We all do our utmost to make dental visits as calm and stress-free as possible for nervous patients. We do this in a number of ways; by being patient, understanding, unhurried and genuinely empathic.

Overcoming fear in children

Trying not to pass on our fears to our children can be tricky. Our advice is to bring your child into your appointment with you from birth. That way they will grow up understanding that the dentist isn’t a scary place.

We will encourage them to sit in the ‘big chair’ and won’t ask to look inside their mouth until they are about two years old. By that time we hope they will be so comfortable in the dental environment they will race to get into the chair before you do.

 If you would like to feel less anxious about your dental appointments, please contact Drayton Dental Care. The door to our School Road dental practice is always open to new patients and we look forward to meeting you and your family soon.
