Modern dental methods make for stress-free visits, says Evesham dentist

by Evesham Dental, on 12th October 2016 | Comments Off on Modern dental methods make for stress-free visits, says Evesham dentist

Fear of the dentist has once again been in the media spotlight recently and Evesham Dental Health Team would like to remind everyone that modern dentistry methods make patients’ visits to the dentist easy and pain free.

In the UK as a whole, more than 80 per cent of adults suffer from dental decay and 90 per cent experience a degree of gum disease at some time in their life. Regular visits to the dentist are a big factor in preventing this but very often it is dental anxiety that keeps patients away.

Overcome your dental anxiety

Around 50 per cent of our population does not visit the dentist – and a quarter of those fail to do so because they are too afraid. These statistics cause us great concern at Evesham Dental Health Team in Worcestershire.

Our team is proud to have helped many dentally phobic patients from across Evesham, Pershore, Alcester, Stratford, Cheltenham, Worcester and beyond overcome their dental anxiety – and even look forward to their dental appointments!

If you visit our website, you will find testimonials from once nervous patients who appreciate our friendly and gentle touch. Here is one taken from our comments book in the reception lounge:

“The most professional, considerate and empathetic practice to come to. Richard and the team have helped me confront and overcome a major personal issue, leaving me with confidence and a perfect smile. Cannot thank you all enough. Absolute Angels xxx”

Our dentists, hygiene team and dental nurses all do their utmost to make dental visits as calm and stress-free as possible for nervous patients. We do this in a number of ways; by being patient, understanding, unhurried, genuinely empathic and investing in technology that helps relieve anxiety.

Many people, anxious or not, dislike having injections and so we work hard at making these as painless and effective as possible.

We want you to be in control, and ask you to raise your hand whenever you wish to rest.

We have sedation if you’d prefer to snooze and NuCalm, which is a technique using natural processes to relax your body, bringing you to a state of calm.

Overcoming fear in children

Trying not to pass on our fears to our children can be tricky. Our advice is to bring your child into your appointment with you from birth. That way they will grow up understanding that the dentist isn’t a scary place.

We will encourage them to sit in the ‘big chair’ and won’t ask to look inside their mouth until they are happy for us to do so. By that time we hope they will be so comfortable in the dental environment they will race to get into the chair before you do.

If you would like to feel less anxious about your dental appointments, please contact Evesham Dental Health Team. The door to our Broadway Road dental practice is always open to new patients and we look forward to meeting you and your family soon.
