Nervous Patients

Nervous Patients

At Smile Clinic Group, we understand that some of our patients are anxious about visiting the dentist.

For some people, it’s a fear of needles. Others worry about post-procedure discomfort. Whatever the reason, our friendly and caring team will listen closely to your concerns and help you relax throughout your appointment.

We will:

  • Openly talk about your fears and worries
  • Let you know what to expect, so there is no fear of the unknown
  • Schedule treatments only when you are completely ready- no rushing or pressure

Dental Sedation

We use a local anesthetic to numb your gums prior to beginning treatment, but some patients need special assistance to calm their fear, eliminate gag reflexes, and minimise the risk of other unpleasant reactions. In this instance, dental sedation is used to alleviate anxiety, control pain, and help you relax during the entire procedure.

At Smile Clinic Group, we have different sedation options available, with the effects ranging from mild relaxation to conscious sedation. A review of your concerns, preferences, and medical history will help us choose the one that works best for you.

If you suffer from dental phobia, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Our teams at Smile Clinic Group locations are committed to providing you with a relaxing and pain-free appointment each time, and will calm your fears no matter what it takes.
