Dental fear is a real and paralysing barrier to seeking help and advice. It is a negative cycle that without the right support and encouragement, is impossible to break. We have a wealth of experience and are here to help with a variety of techniques at our disposal.

Let us help you overcome your fear of the dentist at our Lovesmile clinic. We are very good at treating patients for whom dental treatment induces anxiety, stress, fear and worse! We like treating nervous patients because getting the nervous individual through their dental treatment is immensely satisfying. It makes us feel special!

A caring and sympathetic approach are often sufficient to establish trust between the dentist and patient and alleviate fears sufficiently to allow patients to have treatment in the normal way with careful support and consideration from the dental team, and this is one of the great strengths of Lovesmile. Our treatment is always delivered gently with careful consideration of your comfort in a relaxed and stress-free environment. Dental implants are routinely provided under local aesthetics.

Why are people so anxious about visiting the dentist?

There are many reasons why people are nervous about visiting the dentist. These are the most common reasons we come across at Lovesmile:

a. Previous negative experience

b. Not being in control

c. Unsympathetic dentists

d. Embarrassed about the condition of teeth and gums

e. Fear of dental instruments being placed in the mouth or gagging tendency

f. Fear of the unknown

g. The noise of dental instruments

We understand that dental anxiety is common and affects people of all ages. There are varying levels of dental anxiety which patients can experience ranging from slight nervousness to a severe phobia. We have a relaxed atmosphere and a friendly team to help you overcome your fears. Dental anxiety affects people in many different ways.

If you’re reading this, you’re interested in looking after your oral health, yet the thought of dentistry makes you nervous.

What would it feel like to be able to have all of your work done and not remember any of it? Sedation will put you into a dreamlike state and make you feel completely relaxed whilst you have your treatment. This means no stress as you have your treatment done. Sedation allows your dental procedure carried out in a comfortable and stress-free way. It allows you to visit us without any pre-visit nerves and allows us to complete your treatment in fewer visits than we would normally be able to do so. Almost any procedure can be done using sedation.
