Dental Treatments for Nervous Patients

Overcoming Your Anxiety in the Chair

Dental anxiety is a common issue that prevents many individuals from seeking the dental care they need. The fear of dental procedures, often stemming from previous negative experiences, can lead to neglected oral health and more significant problems down the line. However, at Tonbridge Gentle Dental, we understand these concerns and offer tailored solutions to ensure every patient’s comfort.

What Our Dentist Says

Dental anxiety can manifest in various ways, from mild unease to paralyzing fear. It often stems from a fear of pain, the dental chair, needles, or the sounds and smells associated with dental clinics. These fears can cause individuals to avoid dental visits, even when they are aware of underlying dental issues.

Understanding Dental Anxiety and our approach towards it

Dental anxiety can vary from mild unease to paralyzing fear, often triggered by fear of pain, needles, or dental environments. These fears may lead individuals to avoid dental visits despite underlying issues. At Tonbridge Gentle Dental, we prioritise patient comfort with a personalised approach to treating nervous patients. Through thorough consultations, we understand each patient’s fears, triggers, and concerns, ensuring a tailored experience for their well-being.

Further Support

Many people have a fear of dentists. This may affect their dental health as they only attend the dentist when they have a severe toothache or a complete breakdown of a tooth. These patients only visit the dentist for emergencies and this increases the anxiety and sometimes results in them feeling too embarrassed to attend.
