Relaxation Techniques for Anxious Patients

Sunday, August 23rd, 2015

944335_blogAt City Dental Leeds we recognise that going to the dentist can be an anxiety-provoking experience for some of our patients. We are a Dental Phobia certified practice and always help our patients feel calm, relaxed and comfortable. Our modern clinic is kited out with the latest equipment and we have designed soothing, peaceful spaces to help you de-stress and relax.

What causes dental anxiety?

There are many reasons why people suffer from anxiety when faced with a session in the dental chair. For many people, more specific fears such as a fear of the drill, needles or injections are to blame, while others feel nervous due to negative experiences in the past. In patients who haven’t been to a dentist for a long time, there is often a worry that something will be wrong or a feeling of embarrassment about the state of the teeth and gums.

At City Dental Leeds, our dentists work with nervous patients on a regular basis and use a variety of techniques to help patients to overcome their fears and ensure they feel much more confident and comfortable the next time a dental appointment comes around. From a warm, friendly smile on arrival to the use of the latest dental techniques to minimise discomfort, we are always here to help. We are happy to meet patients for a consultation prior to an appointment for treatment so that they can have a look around and meet the team. We also provide treatment under sedation.

Sedation for nervous patients

We often find that even the mention of sedation can help to make patients feel more relaxed. Sedative medications induce a feeling of calm on the body and mind and when you’re under sedation you can undergo treatment without any anxiety. With sedation, you’ll feel drowsy, but you will still be conscious. you won’t feel anything and you probably won’t remember much about the procedure afterwards.

If you would like to find out more about dental services for nervous patients, don’t hesitate to call us, get in touch via our website or pop in and see us.

Overcoming your Dental Anxieties in Central Leeds

Monday, January 21st, 2013

If you have reservations every time you pay a visit to your dentist in centralLeeds, you feel uncomfortable and get the sweats- it could be that you are suffering from dental anxiety. Though you will turn up each time, which is admirable considering you need to for your oral health, it doesn’t make the visit smooth and comfortable for you. But there is a simple way to help ease your session; you can talk to your dentist beforehand and express your anxieties. By doing this, you have already started to purge yourself and are getting things off your chest, which will make you feel a whole lot better. It will also give your dentist an idea of how to treat you- something that they may not have been aware of before. Now, by you putting your case forward, your dentist can treat you a lot better than ever before. Your dentist can offer you better sedatives, they can employ aromatherapy to put you at ease and make you feel more relaxed and they can give you the power to stop the treatment at any point it becomes uncomfortable for you. If you have the power to have the say in what happens, the anxiety will disappear into the dark and distant past and your dental visits will become something to look forward to, as opposed to being something to be concerned about.
