For Nervous Patients

For Nervous Patients

Going to the dentist today is a far cry from the medieval torture chambers that some patients may be imagining. Today, dental clinics are warm and welcoming places. Compassionate dental professionals ensure that patient comfort is of the highest priority.

But we do understand that many are scared to go to the dentist. The fear of dentists is not something that is exclusive to children. Many adults also struggle with this fear.

Fear of the dentist?

Get results you love

Fear of the dentist is the number one reason that adults put off seeking out dental treatments. This often results in a once simple-to-treat concern only being seen to once it becomes an emergency. Seeking early treatment and attending regular dental checkups can help to protect many dental emergencies.

We offer a number of solutions for our nervous patients so that we can ensure you get only the best in dental care, while ensuring that you feel calm and collected throughout the procedures.

What are some of the reasons people have fear of dentists?

There are any number of concerns that could have led to both a child and an adult to be scared to go to dentist clinics.
Perhaps the most common reason is that there is the fear of the unknown. There is so much seen in television and in films about poor dental practices. It can lead anyone to have a fear of what they may experience when they go to the dentist.
Painful or traumatic dental experiences in the past can definitely cast a cloud over seeking dental treatment today. Perhaps a previous dentist didn’t listen to your concerns, and you felt uncomfortable during treatment?
The sound of the dental drill can also be frightening to some patients.

Some patients are also self-conscious about the current condition of their teeth and gums.

What are some solutions for nervous patients?

The solution for those who are scared to go to dentist clinics will depend greatly on the individual patient. Our compassionate dentists have a world of experience treating nervous patients. Our clinic practises gentle dentistry. Each of our dentists offer a kind and reassuring nature that has helped many of our nervous patients work through their fears.

  • Patients who have a fear of the unknown will be fully educated on what they can expect from their experience in the dental chair.
  • Patients will have the option to be referred for sedation.
  • If there is nervousness felt due to the sounds of the dental drill then music can be offered to help relax and distract a patient from the sounds going on.
  • There is a solution that will ensure the comfort of each patient. We believe in being open and honest with our patients, and believe in keeping the lines of communication open.
Overcoming a fear of dentist clinics with some help
dublinThere are some useful tips that can be put into practice when you’re in the dental chair. First and foremost, be sure that you talk to your dentist. This is the best step to help you overcome your dental fears. Quite often our fears are larger than reality. If you speak honestly and openly with your dentist about the anxiety that you’re struggling with, you’ll be able to release some of that tension you’re also feeling. This will also allow your dentist to understand your needs. Controlled breathing will help to relax your body. It can help to reduce stress and shift your attention to other focal points. This is helpful when you are at the dentist as you can avoid a lot of discomfort and anxiety. When we are stressed, we tense up without even realising it, which can sometimes make us even more sensitive to discomfort than if we were relaxed. The easiest breathing techniques simply involve inhaling and exhaling through your nose for a slow count of three – so three seconds breathing in followed by three seconds breathing out. This technique is particularly useful as it also overcomes the breathing issues many of us feel when things are in our mouth. There are a number of relaxation techniques that may work for you. You could bring music into your appointment with you, ask to have your favourite radio station on or just have the nurse chatting to you about something. Different relaxation and distraction techniques work for different people so try and find something that will work well for you. Your dentist can offer you diazepam or a similar drug to calm your nerves before a dental procedure.

  • Very responsive to my emails, very informative too. Based on really good reviews I booked my first visit there and I could not be happier. Erika was really nice and the treatment went very smooth.

    I have been attending Crown Dental for over a year for general dentistry care, and most recently, the fitting of a Post and Core and Crown, under the excellent professional care of Dr. Erika Barta, Principal Dentist. Dr Erika is very thorough, meticulous and experienced, and explains each stage of the treatment at each visit, having first carried out a detailed examination (including X-Ray, where necessary), and explaining the treatment required. Her primary focus is on conservation and restoring the health and functioning of the teeth at minimum cost, and she does not suggest unnecessary additional treatment. She uses high quality and health-compatible dental materials and components in the treatment of her patients. The clinic is equipped with sophisticated and high-tech equipment. The clinic is bright and very hygienic, with extra Covid measures being adopted to provide maximum protection to patients and staff. Dr Erika's fees are very competitive. I highly recommend Dr Erika for her high quality, professional and caring treatment of her patients, where the patient feels reassured and completely at ease.

  • I just had a visit with Dr Joanna today for a routine clean and to ask about veneers . during the consultation she noticed something more sinister with an infection that's been going on for over 15yrs . she was so informative,caring and really listened to all my questions and worries. most dentists I find are just there to make money but I found wirh joanna that she really wanted to help and not rush into veneers when there was concerns with my gums I may have a longer road then expected but I know I'm in good hands 🙏

    Getting an Invisalign treatment done here. Erika and her assistant are extremely nice people, not once did I ever feel pressured into forking out lots of money like at other dentists. I would 100% recommend family and friends to at least have a check up here and you'll see that it's a positive and professional experience all round.

  • I was very lucky to come across Crown Dental 8 years ago. While other dentists were offering extremely complicated and unaffordable treatments, Erika came up with a much simpler and affordable solution to my issues. I have been going to Crown Dental all these years and have got all my dental work done there: crowns, extractions, cleanings and check-ups... I would definitely recommend Erika and her team in Crown Dental to anyone looking for a top quality, reliable and friendly dentist.

    I went to Crown dental after my old dentist had run out of Options so I looked online and checked out other dentist even looked at going abroad my issue was I'm missing a few teeth from what I believe was a bad brace when I was young other dentist wanted to put metal braced false teeth in and I also needed some crowns so a lot of work!! Crown dental 1st of all fixed my teeth few fillings had to redo a root canal and even a chipped tooth and then some crown's!! and after all that offered me a valplast?? (Not sure if I have the right name)denture no metal! My teeth are now in brilliant condition and after years of no smiles I have mine back two years and love it. This is a long overdue review I found the staff and dentist all friendly and professional a very well run dental practice I have and I would recommend Crown dental! Cheers Garry

  • Done, two teeth filling here. Second one they had to redo because of their fault. During that second time I had to ask to stop drilling several times, because my jaw started uncontrollable spasms. After this rework pain became unstoppable and I had to remove nerves during vacation (spent 3 days for that). That doctor admitted that both fillings were made without the cofferdam, for cavities under them to grow and need to be redone. Also they've missed a big smelly cavity next to that tooth even while having 3!!! X-rays of that area. I don't recommend doing fillings there, because you will need to return soon for their upsale of veneer or expensive nerve removal. Also they are not cheap by any means.

I always recommend the clinic to my friends.
