At Time Dental we realise that going to the dentist can be a daunting experience and dental anxiety is very common. We aim to make all our patients feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible when they walk into our practice, to ensure that they receive the treatment they need without any unwanted stress or anxiety.
Creating positive associations
People often associate the dentist with pain, whether it is due to injections, the dentist drill or prior negative experience, but the truth is that if you leave going to the dentist until you are suffering from an unbearable pain, this will ultimately be detrimental to your oral health. Regular check-ups with your Time Dental dentist will allow an eye to be kept on your oral health, treating any unseen or developing conditions, and we can work together to create a more positive image of a visit to the dentist.
We recognise that going to the dentist can be a big step for some and our caring dental team will do all they can to make your time with us as pleasant and stress-free as possible. We have designed our practice to be a calming oasis, with soothing music, a selection of DVDs to choose from and even the choice of a blanket to help you relax during treatment. Other remedies available to ease any anxiety include relaxation breathing exercises and the assistance of a team that is happy to go the extra mile.
Need a helping hand?
Treatment can be carried out under local anaesthetic if you are worried about a particular procedure. Also, if you are worried about the initial pain of the injection we will apply topical anaesthetic to numb your gums and prevent any unnecessary pain. We want to make sure you enjoy your time with us and we are committed to changing your perception of the dentist.
Gentle dentistry is a way of life at Time Dental and we will be happy to assist you throughout the treatment process.
