Many people are anxious about visiting the dentist; for some, dental phobia can be a serious problem. But with the right dentist helping and supporting you, it’s a problem that can be easily overcome.
Being afraid of the dentist is not uncommon, so don’t worry about being alone. We treat lots of patients who have a phobia about coming to the dentist. A phobia is an irrational fear, and we’re here to help cure that fear. At 32 Whites Dental & Implant Clinic, John, Peter and Shweta have built up many years’ experience treating people who are nervous about visiting the dentist, or are scared about dental treatments.
No matter how intense your phobia is, we can help you overcome it. We’ll reduce your fears, explain all our processes, and make you feel completely relaxed and at home in our practice.
If you feel anxious about having dental treatment, rest assured you’re not alone. It’s very common to be worried about going to the dentist, or even to experience dental phobia. At 32 Whites Dental & Implant Clinic we believe you deserve the best dental care possible.
We know that your dental health is intrinsically linked to your overall health, and that visiting the dentist as an emergency can be especially nerve-wracking. We recommend regular check ups to keep your visits stress-free, and to deal with any issues before they become a problem.
We ensure you have the best possible experience from the moment you step through the door. Our friendly team will put you at ease, and a comfortable reception, well supplied with magazines, complimentary refreshments and your choice of music, will help you feel relaxed.
There are a number of different reasons why people can develop unreasonable fears of the dentist. Understanding these causes is the key to addressing them. They may include:
There’s no reason at all to be scared of visiting the dentist. The reality of dental treatments is completely different from what you might imagine. Practices have likely changed in many ways since your last visit, and, at 32 Whites Dental & Implant Clinic, you may not even recognise our reception and waiting room as a dentists at all!
If you do not visit the dentist regularly, you could end up with all kinds of mouth problems and teeth complications. Living with dental issues like gum disease, mouth ulcers and tooth decay can also lead to all kinds of health problems.
