Fear of Dentistry
Millions of people are afraid to go to the dentist, preventing them from getting the dental care they need.
Dental Phobia is a real condition categorized by anxiety and psychological concerns. Common concerns are feeling not in control, being worried about diagnosis, fear of injections, anxiety caused by noise, fear of gagging or choking during treatment.
We at the British Dental Clinic understand these fears and anxieties. Our clinic is designed with your comfort in mind and we offer a number of techniques to make your dental experience as pleasurable as possible.
For those who do have dental phobia, sedation dentistry is a wonderful option to ease anxiety and fear. Depending on the patient, dental sedation is administered through nitrous oxide (laughing gas) . Sometimes called “sleep dentistry,” patients remain awake and conscious throughout the procedure for safety and cooperation.
Learn more about sedation dentistry and schedule your consultation with us so that we can hear your concerns and address your dental anxiety before you begin treatment.
