Patient Care – Anxious and Nervous Patients Cheltenham

Fear and Anxiety

beating dental anxiety at captivate dental We understand that not all dental experiences are pleasant, and not all practitioners are as gentle and caring as we are.

Unpleasant past experiences can have a devastating effect.

Dental fear is usually triggered by certain experiences, and some of these are:

Loss of control – Some patients feel a loss of control when sitting on a dental chair and find it overwhelming when a dentist works inside their mouths. They usually associate the feeling with helplessness or being trapped.

Pain – Most people fear going to the dentist out of fear of pain, especially those with a low pain threshold.

Embarrassment – Some patients feel ashamed when dentists look inside their mouths and examine their teeth and gums. Discomfort can also result from the little distance between a patient and dentist during treatment.

Past Experiences – Most people develop fears due to bad experiences in the past. If a previous treatment was painful or resulted in complications, a patient may hesitate about going to the dentist again.

Dental treatments are more advanced now as compared to a few years back.

There are many methods to do things with as minimal pain as possible — from the administration of anaesthesia to surgery.

Your Cheltenham dentist recognises that people have hesitations about going to us, so at Captivate Dental, we continue to do our best in providing a relaxing and reassuring atmosphere for all our patients.

Dental visits are not as dreadful as you think because their goal is to keep your oral health in check.
