Don’t let a fear of visiting the dentist stop you getting important treatment
What can you do if you’re scared about dental treatment? Being fearful of a visit to the dentist is commonplace, but quite often this fear subsides after a successful trip to the dentist. We are always happy to help you make this first step.
Initially a conversation with your dentist can be enough to allay any fears as you may have experienced what are now outdated practices. If you are still unsure, then sedation dentistry is an option in which you are given medication to help you relax enough to be able to receive treatment. Sedation (or sleep) dentistry has evolved significantly in recent years. Today you have the option of minimal, moderate and deep sedation, or even general anaesthesia, where you are completely asleep during your treatment.
