If you worry about visiting the dentist, you’re not alone. It’s quite natural to have concerns but for some people these can develop into dental phobia. This can stop you from getting the care and treatment you need (meaning that potential problems are not picked up and your dental health put at risk).
At Shine Dental Care in Mansfield, we have a wealth of experience in treating nervous patients and have successfully encouraged many people to put their fears behind them. If you feel very nervous, we can help manage your anxiety so that you can attend check-ups and go ahead with treatments. The first step is often the most difficult – but all it really involves is walking through our doors and talking to us.
Shine Dental Care is a calm and relaxed practice
If you haven’t visited us before, the first thing you’ll notice is how our reception doesn’t look like a dental waiting room at all. It’s bright and welcoming with large, plush sofas where you can sip a coffee, read a magazine or listen to ambient music. The treatment rooms are just as cheery – they’re even scented to avoid the clinical smells people often associate with a trip to the dentist.
When you sit and talk to our team, it’s clear you’re in safe hands. Our dentists will talk through every aspect of treatment so you understand what is happening at all times, and our nurses are always happy to hold your hand if you feel uneasy during treatment.
We invest in technology such as The Wand (a new anaesthesia system that’s virtually pain free) to make your experience as comfortable as possible. All of our dentistry is pain free and we’re happy to make an early appointment so you don’t need to worry during the day and welcome a friend or family for moral support. You can even bring your own music with you if you feel it will help.
If you have any worries at all, please do get in touch as talking to us can make all the difference.
