Dental Anxiety

Managing Dental Anxiety

You are not alone. There are many who fear dental visits and procedures, and this can sometimes be difficult to overcome. It can have a great impact on your health, as regular dental visits are a key component of dental health. Dealing with dental issues before they begin can only be achieved with regular visits to our Kew dental practice.

The primary cause of dental anxiety is typically a bad experience that someone may have had in the past that has resulted in a negative emotional response. A single bad experience can have a serious impact on a patient. At Kew Dental, our main focus is to ensure that your experience is as pleasant ad relaxed as possible in order to avoid any negativity that could create dental anxiety.

There are many ways to effectively deal with this anxiety. One of the most effective is us making sure that you are well informed from the moment you walk in the door. We carefully explain every step and answer any questions you may have before, during, and after treatment. Another option is sedation dentistry, which has a calming effect but does not put you to sleep completely. This allows you to relax during the procedure.

If you are looking for a new dentist and have questions, don’t hesitate to ask any questions about concerns or fears that you may have.
