At our dental practice in Swindon we understand the anxiety that many patients feel when they visit the dentist. For some, this anxiety may even begin long before their appointment is imminent, building up over time. We see this anxiety on a regular basis and, if you’re someone who experiences this kind of nervousness, we’d like to start our relationship with you with a simple message: don’t worry, it’s quite normal.
Whether these worries have a historical basis or are a lifelong phobia, the anxiety is a natural defence mechanism of the body to make you flee from what the mind sees as a potentially threatening situation. The only thing ‘wrong’ with this association is that, from our end, there is no threat. You can trust us.
Being nervous of the dentist does not make you ‘weak’ or ‘silly’ and neither should you feel ashamed. We believe that by listening to your worries and concerns and then helping you to understand your dental issues and treatments better, we can go a long way towards minimising an anxiety that may have made your visits to the dentist such an unpleasant experience in the past.
At your pace
This extra time spent talking through situations and options doesn’t come at an extra cost either. We believe that these needs should be met as part of standard best practice by modern dentistry. We’ll always go gently and work at your pace. With us, you can stop feeling nervous.
Create positive experiences
For many patients, the root of their anxiety around dental treatment may stem from an adverse experience in the past. We believe that by creating newer, more positive experiences, we can begin to undo the damage that these unpleasant events have caused. Having built that relationship and trust, we believe you will want to come back.
