Being scared of the dentist is nothing to be ashamed of. At Harley Street Dental Clinic we recognise that dental fear and phobia is very real, causing anything from mild anxiety to full-blown panic attacks in people who suffer from it. However, we also think that in the 21st Century, fear shout not be a barrier to having the treatment you need, and the smile you deserve.
Dental fear and phobia has numerous causes. It could be that you had a bad experience with a dentist as a child; you may have specific triggers that set you off, such as the noise of a drill or the sight of a needle; or you may be ashamed if your teeth are in less than perfect condition, and worried about being judged.
Let us reassure you that at our Harley Street clinic we will never judge a patient whose oral health needs attention. Instead, we will work with you in a relaxed, calm, and professional manner to get your teeth and gums back to healthy condition.
Modern dental techniques have improved a lot, and at Harley Street Dental Clinic we have a unique collection of dentists and specialists, all of whom are committed to providing you with the highest quality of care – pain free.
When you come to see your dentist, they will take the time to talk you through any treatment required, including analgesia requirements.
Your dentist will also work with you to develop hand signals so that you can let us know easily if you need a break during treatment. We will also build ample time into your appointments to enable you to have a breather – there is no need to fear that you are holding your dentist up.
We also offer treatment under inhalation and intravenous sedation, ensuring you are relaxed and pain-free.
