5.0

We understand that for some, the thought of visiting the dentist fills them with nerves and anxiety. If that’s you and you are reading this page, then we here at TWDC congratulate you on taking this first important step.

We would like to invite you to call us to arrange a time to visit the practice to meet the team – not for a consultation – but as a chance to get to know us. It takes a lot of courage to do something you genuinely fear, but you have already started on the road to improving your dental health.

For some patients it may be that you have been putting off visiting a dentist for so long that you are
embarrassed by the condition of your teeth. This is something we hear a lot and, in our
experience, it is never as bad as people think it is.

Whatever your concerns are we are here to listen and work with you to build your confidence and improve your dental health. Our mission at TWDC is to empower all our patients to take care of their oral health and feel good about their smile, and that includes any nervous patients too.

If you’re feeling particularly nervous about a particular treatment, we may well be able to offer you sedation options. We can also help our patients overcome their fears and anxieties through the use of CBT. You can find out more about all these options below, or please feel free to ask us any questions you may have.

Sedation

For some, receiving any dental treatment causes feelings of nerves, anxiety, and even dread, while for others it is specific treatments that they are worried about. We can offer intravenous (IV) sedation to make treatment more comfortable and to reduce anxiety.

Whether it is a simple scale and polish or multiple implants, sedation may be the answer to helping you through your treatment feeling comfortable and at ease.

CBT

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a highly effective way of managing dental fear. It is a talking therapy that highlights barriers to dental treatment and works through solutions. It helps link thought patterns, beliefs and emotions and from there, to develop positive coping strategies in order to overcome dental fear.

Having trained in CBT for dental fear our dentists at TWDC use their skills to help patients achieve their goals. Whilst we can offer special CBT sessions for patients, we also tend to incorporate CBT into our daily practice to make the experience more comfortable for every patient who visits us.
