Dental Anxiety, Fear, and Phobia

Is dental anxiety, dental fear, and dental phobia essentially the same thing? That's what I want to explain here in more detail, there are some slight differences. 

Anxiety involves apprehension about a situation, it is not usually about something that is happening, but about something due to happen in the future. For the majority of the population, a visit to the dentist does invoke some feelings of anxiety regarding your upcoming appointment.

General Anaesthetic

There are times when even the excellent forms of sedation we can offer in the practice are not suitable. We understand that each person’s phobias and medical conditions are unique, after our initial consultation with you (and your medical physician if required) we may recommend that a general anaesthetic might be the most suitable way to complete the majority of your dental work.

Wisdom Tooth Pain

Wisdom teeth can often be the unseen cause of pain in the jaw, the gums and surrounding teeth.  Wisdom teeth can become stuck under the other molars, causing inflammation and infections in some instances.  While they can be painful when they start to cause problems, they can sometime be causing unseen long term damage with no pain present.  

Relaxing environment

Are you a little apprehensive?  We treat you with dignity and try to make sure you are relaxed.  The Dental Lounge was designed right from the start to be a relaxing place.
