Many people have a fear of dentists. This may affect their dental health as they only attend the dentist when they have severe toothache or a complete breakdown of a tooth.
These patients only visit the dentist for emergencies and this increases the anxiety and sometimes results in them feeling too embarrassed to attend.
We have sedation available for these nervous patients. They will be seen by a qualified sedationist. Intravenous sedation can be arranged by appointment and this allows the patient to undergo treatment without pain or anxiety.
For patients that have a needle phobia, we have The Wand The Wand is designed to replace the traditional syringe and is a computer controlled anaesthetic delivery system that looks like a pen and is pain-free.
