Are you afraid of the dentist?
Over 50% of the British public claim they are anxious about a visit to the dentist, with almost 12% having such high levels of anxiety, it is classed as a phobia.
Those with dental phobia will often avoid a visit to the dentist, unless in an emergency situation. This often means phobic patients have poorer oral health and higher rates of tooth decay, this can result in the need for more complicated treatment when they do attend.
Thankfully, here at Smile Studio Penarth we can offer several solutions for finding peace of mind in the dental chair.We help by using a variety of methods such as relaxation techniques, slowly introducing you to the practice, your dentist and treatments. If you require an injection then numbing gel is always used first and we work at a pace that suits you, you are in control at all times.
We can also provide sedation for our patients and are always sympathetic to your needs and fears.
