Pain Management and Anxiety Reduction

We employ various techniques to minimise pain and discomfort during dental procedures. Where needed, we use local anesthesia to ensure patients feel little to no pain during treatments.  Of course, needle phobia is part of dental phobia – we also use anaesthetic gel before any needles to help reduce any stinging. Additionally, we have a gentle touch and provide breaks during procedures, allowing you to rest as needed. Our proactive approach significantly reduces pain-related anxiety, providing you with a sense of control and comfort.

Gradual Desensitisation

Gentle dentists understand that overcoming dental anxiety may require gradual desensitisation. We work with patients to develop a step-by-step plan, starting with simple and non-invasive procedures, gradually progressing to more complex treatments. By allowing patients to become comfortable with the dental environment and procedures at their own pace, we’ll help reduce fear and build confidence, fostering a positive dental experience.

Our care extends beyond the dental chair. We understand that post-treatment support is crucial in maintaining patients’ trust and reducing future anxiety. We provide clear instructions for post-procedure care, answer any questions or concerns, and offer follow-up appointments to monitor progress and address any issues. You’ll feel supported and reassured, and encouraged to continue seeking dental care without excessive anxiety in the future!
