Hate going to the dentist?

Hate going to the dentist? Don’t worry, you are not alone…

Here at the Rock Dental in Tettenhall, Wolverhampton we often meet patients that tell us about their fears regarding dentistry. Many patients have grown up fearing the dentist – but I promise you, this really shouldn’t be the case.

Dentistry should not be scary. However, we are all individuals, and everyone has a right to be anxious about certain things. I am no different. I have two major fears, heights, and believe it or not hairdressers. Totally irrational, I know, but we all have own specific fears.

Visit the Dentist Regularly

The main bit of advice is to our patients is to visit our dental practice in Tettenhall, Wolverhampton regularly. Prevention is better than the cure. If we can empower you to look after your own teeth, as a result, we won’t need to treat you. A simple pain-free dental examination is all you will need. Therefore, there is no need to hate going to the dentist, keeping on top of any dental issues you may have is the key.

Dental Sedation at Rock Dental in Tettenhall, Wolverhampton

Conscious sedation is an excellent option for patients who are scared of the dentist, whatever the cause. Dental sedation is a tried and tested technique to relax patients. A sedative agent is given to the patient to take the edge off dental treatments, therefore leading to total relaxation. It’s so good that many patients feel like they are ready to drift off to sleep. Commonly patients don’t even remember having the dental treatment.

Specialised pain free-anaesthetic treatments

Lots of people hate going to the dentist. The latest Adult Dental health survey showed 41% of the population suffer from dental anxiety. A big cause of this is the fear of injections. The dental syringe has not changed since the 1800’s, however, now technology has received an update!

As a result, we now use two amazing gadgets for needle phobics. The Wand, and The Vibraject. Both of these devices allow us to painlessly administer local anaesthesia, therefore resulting in a better experience for patients. 100% of patients that we use these on are amazed by the results. Painful injections really are a thing of the past!

“The Wand” is “a computer-controlled dental injection” and it helps to gradually deliver the local anaesthetic to the gums prior to the treatment. It doesn’t even look like a syringe at all, more like a pen. It is an electronic device (which is the computerised base) with a tube that delivers the anaesthetic through a pen-like ending. This is a pain-free injection device that removes the fear of dental injections.

The Vibraject causes the needle to vibrate masking any discomfort from the injection. You hear a buzzing sound and feel the vibration and that’s all. This small device is based on the Gate Control Theory of nerve function. In short, the theory suggests that nerve endings sense vibrations first and then cannot transmit feelings of dental injections. Or, to put it another way, it is difficult for you to feel two things in the same area at the same time. So the vibrations essentially mask the discomfort, putting you at ease during even the most dreaded injections.

Hate going to the dentist? Don’t let fear of the dentist hold you back!

Come and pay us a visit. Talk to our treatment coordinator about the options for your treatment. I guarantee you will be surprised by the results that we can provide you with. Our goal is to help you overcome your fears – we ultimately want you to enjoy your visits to the dentist.
