Nervous Patients

Our Goal

We will always try to make the surgery atmosphere as relaxed as possible, and all our staff are sympathetic and cheerful. However we do realise that dental treatment will always be a difficult experience for some people.

Tips from the NHS to ease dental fear

Arrange your appointment for early in the morning so you have less time to dwell on it Arrange a simple check up for your first appointment so you can meet your dentist and get to know him/her. If you do need extensive treatment consider staring with a teeth cleaning to ease yourself in. Bring a friend with you to your appointment and they can sit in the treatment room with you Bring an iPod with you to your appointment so you can listen to music. It will relax you.

Treatment under sedation

If you are extremely nervous we do offer RA sedation. We are one of 2 practices in the region that offers this. Mr Peacock has been providing treatment with sedation for over 20 years and is highly experienced with dealing with anxious patients. Some people find simple inhalation sedation very helpful to relax them for dental treatment. This is like the gas and air given during childbirth, but instead of it been given through a mask it comes through a nose piece. This must be planned in advance so please speak to your dentist if this is something you wish to consider.
