Dental Phobia Or Dental Anxiety

Dental Phobia or Dental Anxiety

Lots and lots of patients suffer from a fear of the dentist. However, if you have a dental phobia or dental anxiety, do not worry, you are not alone.

Tell us if you are nervous about dental treatments. We understand that people are reluctant to visit dentists either out of a fear of pain or needles or just general dental anxiety. Furthermore, some people are so scared to go to the dentist that they avoid at all costs. However, this only leads to future dental problems.

At Rock House Dental Practice, our team is sympathetic to these feelings and will, therefore, do absolutely everything in our power to help you overcome your dental phobia.

Often these worries disappear when you talk the treatment through in detail with your dentist. Consequently, our team is always willing to take the time to explain procedures to you in detail and go at your pace. We also offer video demonstrations of a procedure or 3D animations, which give you a clearer idea of what to expect. Time is taken to help you clearly understand your treatment options and find a solution that works for you. After all, everyone is different, hence, our treatments are bespoke and tailored just for you.

How does relaxation work with regards to dental phobia?

When faced with a challenge or something we're afraid of, such as a visit to the dentist, our bodies produce substances, which raise our anxiety. However, we can train our bodies to work against this anxiety, by learning to relax. It's not possible to be anxious and relaxed at the same time, therefore, learning relaxation helps control our anxiety and overcome your dental phobia.

    Excellent. Needed emergency treatment after breaking a tooth/filling. Could not get in at NHS emergency surgeries.
    Staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. A very good service, though it comes at a price.

    These guys have proved time and again for me that they care more, when I needed emergency care they performed miracles and then repeatedly rang me to check how I was. Then they coached me to make sure it didn't reoccur. They've repeatedly told me not to have treatment if... read more - 3/13/2019

    Excellent first visit to the Rock Dental Practice. All the staff are friendly and professional. Particularly liked the 'real time' discussion about the Xray results - shown on a screen in the surgery a few minutes after they were taken. Can't get much better than that for patient care. - 2/01/2019
