For many of us, going to the dentist is a terrifying experience – if you’ve ever been phased by the idea of visiting the dentist, you are suffering from dental phobia. According to a study by the British Dental Association, as many as 25% of dental patients suffer from nervousness before visiting the dentist.
The jury is still out there as to what exactly causes dental phobia – it can be the dentist themselves, a fear of the instruments that are being used, past experienced or even just a simple un-founded fear. Whatever the reasons, dental phobia is a real thing for many people and it is something that we can help with at Dental Health for Life.
Your dental health can be directly linked to your overall health, which is why regular dental appointments are so important. When you come to see Dr. Jannie Tromp, we want it to be a relaxing experience, knowing that you are being looked after and that we only have your best interest at heart.
Regular visits will help you to prevent and avoid any serious dental health concerns.
Because our entire team are caring and understanding toward patients who suffer from dental phobia, we have taken it upon us to train ourselves to use technology and techniques that are designed to help patients who suffer from this condition.
Here are some of the ways in which Dental Health for Life’s staff can assist you:
Our team will always do their best to help you with your fear of going to the dentist, but here are some ways in which you can minimise your own anxiety:
There’s no rush at Dental Health for Life – we will give patients with dental anxiety extra time to make sure they are as comfortable as possible.
When we sense a patient might be suffering from dental phobia, we take great care in understanding their concerns on an individual basis. We take the time to talk to each client and act according to their specific needs.
We always make sure we maintain a relaxed atmosphere in the practice, complimenting our gentle approach to dentistry as a whole – we want every patient to feel safe and secure.
The key factor here, is communication – we chat to our clients and talk them through every step of the procedure. This way, the patient can ask us questions and we can set their mind at ease.
If you are ready to get over your dental phobia, please contact us to book a FREE CONSULTATION – Dr. Tromp looks forward to meeting you.
