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.

    5 star review  Great dentists and friendly staff! I had bone augmentation, 2 implants and 3 crowns done. The whole process took about a year due to the complexity but it certainly was worth it. I am delighted with the results and will happily recommend the clinic to my friends and family.

  • 5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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.

    5 star review  Both myself and my husband have been Dr Erika's patients for over a decade. Crown dental is the cleanest, most equipped dental practice I have ever been to. Both dentists and the nurses are highly qualified and are brilliant with nervous patients. My husband had a dental implant done here with A+ results. Their prices are highly competitive but without compromising on quality. We cannot recommend them highly enough.

    5 star review  I've been a patient at Crown Dental for over 6 years. When I was younger I played professional Rugby and lost a good number of my front teeth due to a freak-accident (knee in the face). For years I had a denture, which was a hassle to eat with. It also made me self conscious in social interactions, until I could bare it no longer. Crown Dental was recommended to me and it literally changed my life in so many ways! Over this period I had 4 implants, 5 crowns, 1 bridge and several root canals done, along with a couple of fillings and cleanings. I now have an amazing smile that all my friends and family are complimenting me about, it restored my confidence and gave me a brighter outlook on life. Thank you Dr. Erika for changing my life.

And also got implants and bridges done by Crown Dental. The staff is very helpful and professional. The environment is very relaxed, you don't feel going to the dentist 🙂 . I always recommend the clinic to my friends.
