At Trinity Dental we understand that many patients are nervous about visiting the dentist. Fear of the dentist is the single biggest reason that patients in the UK give for putting off dental treatment.
People cite lots of reasons for their fear of the dentist, from a bad experience in the past to a phobia of needles. Whatever it is that makes you nervous, we are confident we can help you. Our team is empathic and caring, and we have a number of options available for nervous patients.
Our Treatment Co-ordinator can go through all the options with you in detail, and for some patients talking through treatment may be enough to allay fears. Dental techniques have advanced greatly in recent years, so you should feel no pain. You are also welcome to bring a friend or family member with you to your appointments for moral support.
At Trinity Dental we offer IV sedation, which is a small sedative administered into the back of your hand or your arm and will induce a state of deep relaxation.
You will feel sleepy and extremely calm whilst retaining the ability to respond during your treatment but with no recollection after the effect has worn off. With that in mind, you will need an escort to take you home and stay with you whilst you recover.
Our clinic has a comfortable, state-of-the-art recovery room attached to our first floor surgery, where you can take your time to recover from IV sedation.
If you suffer from any of the above conditions, IV sedation might be the perfect solution for all your dental needs.
"Needle free Injection? Oh Yes!!
Not many of us are happy to have an injection, whether we're needle phobics or we just don't like the feeling!
There is a solution! INJEX – The Soft Shot.
It works by delivering a gentle shot of anaesthetic onto the tissue, infiltrating the area required to be numb, completely avoiding a needle! The after effects of the anaesthetic don't last as long either so if you have an important meeting later that day and need a fully functioning mouth, INJEX is for you.
It is also ideal for children as a lesser dose is required and children are often wary of the dentist anyway, so anything to make their experience more positive the better. INJEX aims to take away the pain and fear associated with injection with needles so ask us about it today.
