Nervous Patients Maghull

Feeling apprehensive before you see the dentist is unfortunately quite a common occurrence. However, most patients relax and feel more at ease once they’ve met the dentist and understand the procedure ahead.

Nervous Patient Dentist in MaghullBut what about those patients who have a real phobia of dental treatment and visiting the dentist? Known as odontophobia, some patients are so phobic of dentists they avoid visiting at all.

At Northway Dental Practice we can empathise with such fears and will work tirelessly with nervous or phobic patients to ensure they receive the treatment they need. We do this in the following ways:

  • Invite you to visit the practice before your appointment so you can see the surgery and meet your team
  • Explain the reason for treatment and the steps ahead
  • Encourage you to attend the practice with a friend or loved one for additional support
  • Offer you an early appointment so you don’t have to spend the day feeling unduly anxious
  • Start with a simple examination and move to treatment (if required) at a later date
  • Agree on a hand signal so that your dentist knows if you need to take a break during the course of treatment

For certain treatments, we can also offer a mild inhalation sedation. This is taken in through a face mask and will help you feel more relaxed.

It’s important to us that you feel confident and comfortable with your dentist prior to treatment. Please let us know your thoughts and feelings so that we can provide all the support you need.
