Have you ever felt anxious before visiting the dentist? Or perhaps you have decided not to book your annual check-up because you feel nervous about sitting in the dentist’s chair.
If either of those scenarios sounds familiar, you, like many other people may suffer from a form of dental anxiety which can be harmful to your general oral health.
At Moorside Dental Practice, we have worked with many nervous patients over the years and have successfully treated them in our calm and relaxed surgery environment.
Our preventative approach to dentistry means that by seeing us regularly, you can hopefully avoid the need for the treatments that may cause further anxiety.
If you find these routine appointments difficult, we suggest the following steps to make your experience more endurable:
- When you call us to book an appointment, please let us know about your dental anxiety so we can develop a treatment plan to suit you
- You can attend the appointment with a friend or family member for additional support
- We can arrange an early appointment so you don’t have to feel anxious all day
When you attend our practice, our dentists will take the time to show you the equipment that will be used and explain what its function is – helping you to prepare for treatment.
We want to help you enjoy a positive dental experience.
