Overcoming Dental Anxiety

Alleviating your fears around dental treatment

Learn How To Overcome Dental Anxiety And Keep Your AppointmentIs your fear of the dentist stopping you in your tracks when you need to book an appointment?

Here at Dental Excel, we understand and we can help you to get the dental care you need.

We help many nervous patients, often recommended to us by other previously-anxious patients, who say how pleasantly surprised they were during the entire experience.

Dental fear can affect men, women and children of all ages. It can come on with no warning,
even if you’ve previously been fine.

Not many people like attending the dentist, even for a routine examination. For some people, however, a dental appointment can cause severe anxiety and high stress levels. This is dental phobia, also known as dental fear, and it is something quite different to live with than a simple dislike of the dentist.

Dental fear can affect men, women and children of all ages. It can come on with no warning, even if you’ve previously been fine. It can be debilitating and prohibit you receiving even the simplest routine dental care.

Dental phobia and a fear of needles are two of the most common reasons why people do not attend the dentist. There are many different levels of dental fear and people who have severe anxiety often only consider attending the dentist during an emergency situation, when a problem has developed extensively and is causing pain.

When regular dental check-up opportunities are missed, this neglect can lead to development of tooth decay, onset of gum disease and other problems that can be dealt with simply and quickly if spotted early, often without another appointment or further treatment.

What else makes people nervous of attending the dentist?

Teeth in poor condition leading to embarrassment
Be reassured! The Dental Excel teams at all our locations are professionals and have extensive experience around all types of dental issues. Let us help you overcome your embarrassment.

Hearing about a bad experience someone else has had at the dentist
If you’re already nervous of the dentist, hearing about someone else’s negative experience can create anxiety. Likewise, if you’ve previously had your own bad dental experience, this is a common reason for putting off trying another practice.

Try to keep in mind that not all dentists are the same. Come and try us, we’re different!

Here at Dental Excel we pride ourselves on treating you as we would like to be treated ourselves. We want you not to fear the dentist, but to be happy to return and receive
dental health care for life.
We endeavour to make your experience at Dental Excel the best we can.
