One of the biggest problems confronting dentists in the south east of London today, is dealing with a nervous patient- simply because they can seriously hinder administering the treatments that the patient requires. It’s no party if you suffer from dental phobias either. However this problem has arisen, maybe out of personal dental experiences to you or others around you, it needs to be confronted and overcome to keep your mouth healthy. It’s important to build a rapport with your dentist so that you both gain each others trust. Expressing your fears to your dentist will build a bond between and allow you both to plan a way forward for your treatments. Ignorance to dental procedures is a big factor here, because if as a patient, you are aware of what’s involved with your treatments, you can have a say in how they are carried out. Many dentists are versed in the art of relaxation techniques and sedation dentistry and will be able to offer you anything from hypnotherapy to drugs to quell any anxieties you may have and to make your visit as comfortable and as painless as possible. Most dental problems arise from people’s fear of dental procedures and getting the correct treatment they require, hence they tend not to, until a real emergency arises.
