Anxiety over going to the dentist is incredibly common with quite a number of the population suffering in silence or putting off going, which often on stores up further problems for the future.
If you are nervous about going to the dentist, going to a private dentist could be of great benefit to you. While NHS dentists are getting better when it comes to anxious patients, they still have quite a way to go in many cases. The fact that you quite often find yourself feeling rushed, with very little time spent talking to the dentist, can make everything worse.
If this is all too familiar to you, you might want to take a look at a private dental clinic, especially one such as Harbour Dental Care, as they offer a specific service for anxious patients to help them relax before the consultation, to help minimise, and sometimes eliminate, the stress and anxiety they feel.
Harbour Dental Care's resident relaxation therapist can help you to relax ahead of your appointment in the dentist's chair. They don't promise to cure you of your anxiety, instead the aim is to leave you feeling calm, relaxed and ready to receive treatment without feeling quite so stressed or panicked.
The techniques taught to you by Sandra will help to focus your mind and help you to deal with the worry and anxiety felt, thus inducing a state of relaxation and a feeling of rest, rather than the ‘usual’ response of stress.
If you think you would benefit from having a dentist that really understands anxious patients and does all they can to ensure the visit is as stress free as possible, get in contact with Harbour Dental Care today!
