If you’re feeling nervous about an upcoming dental appointment, you’re not alone. Many people experience some level of anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist. Here at our dental practice, we understand this and are committed to making sure all of our patients have a comfortable and positive experience. We offer a variety of treatments and services specifically designed for patients who get anxious or nervous in the dentist’s chair.
It is Normal to be Nervous
Dental treatments can be nerve-wracking for some patients. If you suffer from dental anxiety, you’re not alone. According to the ADA, “approximately 30% of adults in the U.S. report feeling anxious about visiting the dentist.” If you’re one of those adults, there’s no need to worry. There are a variety of dental treatments that cater to patients with anxiety.
We are here to help you through the treatment, to explain in detail what we will do, how, and why. We will never hurt you, and will do our best to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
There are three common versions of dental bonding available to patients, resulting in similar results.
Oral sedation involves taking a pill before your appointment to help you feel more relaxed during treatment. The pill is usually taken about an hour before your scheduled appointment time, and it will help you feel drowsy and calm during your visit. You will need someone to drive you home after your appointment because the effects of the medication can last up to 24 hours.
Sedation dentistry is a safe and effective way to help patients relax during dental procedures. There are several different types of sedation that can be used depending on the patient’s level of anxiety and the type of procedure being performed.
At our dental office, we understand that some patients may feel anxious about coming in for their appointment. Whether it’s a fear of the unknown, a bad experience in the past, or something else entirely, we want to do everything we can to make sure you feel comfortable and at ease. Here are some of the dental treatments we offer for patients who may be feeling nervous.
Also called “sleep dentistry,” this type of dental treatment involves using medications to help patients relax during their procedure. There are different types of sedation dentistry, and the type that’s right for you will depend on your level of anxiety and your medical history.
I registered with Frederick Dental Clinic towards the end of 2011, when I arrived in Dublin, and have found the service to be consistently outstanding. The clinic is relaxed and comfortable, the staff are friendly and professional, and the treatment is excellent. I had been considering orthodontic treatment for a number of years previously, but had never found a dentist where I felt sufficiently confident to take the plunge. I was so impressed with the expertise, technology and overall service at Frederick Dental Clinic, however, that I embarked upon orthodontic correction within months of registering, and now - part way through my treatment - I am immensely glad at my decision. Highly recommended.
