Many of us are nervous about visiting the dentist. In fact research shows that one in four people in the UK dread seeing their dentist, so if you feel this way you are not alone. At Llanishen Dental Centre we understand that you may feel apprehensive about visiting the dentist so we do all we can to create a calm and welcoming atmosphere to put you at ease.
All staff are experienced in dealing with nervous patients, offering a sympathetic and professional service. Our practice although containing state-of-the-art facilities is a bright and comfortable space which has been especially designed to look as nonclinical as possible.
Our dentists offer special services for nervous patients. Those who haven’t visited a dentist for some time may be surprised to see how fast treatments are advancing. We have invested in the Wand technology, which allows us to deliver pain-free local anaesthetic. The Wand has been designed to look unthreatening, with the needle element disguised as a pen. Patients should not feel any pain when having their injection and this should help reduce any anxiety.
For those with dental phobias we can offer oral sedation where you will be given anti-anxiety drugs to help you relax for your dental visit.
We pride ourselves on keeping up-to-date with any new developments in dental care and we now offer acupuncture as an option for nervous patients. Research shows that having acupuncture before a dental appointment can reduce anxiety levels, enabling you to proceed with dental check-ups or treatment without feeling overwhelmed.
Your dentist will be happy to discuss which method will work best for you. To book an appointment please complete our booking form or call us on 029 2076 1476.
