Dental anxiety is a common phenomenon, affecting people of all ages. It can stem from various factors, including fear of pain, past negative experiences, concerns about invasive procedures, or a general sense of unease related to dental visits. We recognize that dental anxiety is valid and can prevent individuals from seeking the dental care they need.
At Merton Dental, we are committed to providing compassionate and gentle dental care for nervous patients. Our experienced dental team understands the unique needs and concerns of anxious individuals and strives to create a safe and comfortable environment. We believe that open communication is key to easing dental anxiety. Our team takes the time to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and explain each step of the dental procedure. We aim to build a relationship of trust, ensuring that you feel heard and understood throughout your dental visit.
We offer various relaxation techniques to help you feel more at ease during your dental appointment. These may include deep breathing exercises, guided imagery, or listening to calming music. By incorporating these techniques, we can help reduce stress and promote a sense of relaxation. Our dental team is trained in providing gentle care to nervous patients. We take extra care to ensure minimal discomfort during procedures, using gentle techniques and appropriate anesthesia. Our goal is to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible, helping you overcome your dental anxiety.
For patients with severe dental anxiety, we offer sedation options to help you relax during your treatment. These options may include oral sedation, where you take medication to induce a state of relaxation, or intravenous (IV) sedation, where sedatives are administered intravenously. Our experienced professionals will discuss the most suitable sedation option for your specific needs.
