Why do I get nervous?

So many people feel anxious about visiting the dentist – some avoid visiting altogether. Our friendly and caring team have extensive experience in calming nerves and phobias. By combining our skill with the very latest modern techniques – from The Wand™ to full sedation – we guarantee that you will have a positive and pain free experience from start to finish.

It is natural to be anxious when undergoing any major treatment at the dentist. The main thing is to have trust and confidence in the dental practice and your surgeon as well as research all your options as well as the treatment you are undergoing. Research also shows many patients don’t like the smell, the sounds and the memories of a dentist from childhood – although private dentistry has now moved on dramatically and much of the anxiety is from past memories. Don’t worry, we can still help you gain your smile.

How can I reduce my nerves?

Some of the top dental anxiety techniques and methods for coping with dental anxiety and dental phobia include:

  • Meditation - a relaxation of mind and body musculature.
  • Audio distraction - For many, wearing headphones can help to block out much of the dental noises that increase their anxiety.
  • Visual distraction – watching television or a movie to take your mind off things.
  • Be Prepared - asking your dentist in advance what you can expect during your visit and how procedures are handled so that you are prepared.
  • Relaxation Techniques - The key here is to place focus on your body parts, relaxing them one at a time.
  • Take A Mini Vacation In Your Mind! - to help ease your nerves, imagine yourself in a relaxing and enjoyable setting.
  • Breathing Exercises - deep breathing can be a great technique to relax your mind and body with slow deep breaths allowing oxygen to flow easily.
  • Take Breaks – during dental procedures, when anxiety builds up, just ask your dentist to take a break who will gladly stop to give you the time.
