Dental anxiety is a very common type of anxiety that affects many people around the world. Most people don’t like going to the dentist, but a few of them find the thought of dental visits unbearable. Whether they are afraid of needles or they are afraid of the drill, nervous dental patients who avoid going for check-ups and treatment put their oral and overall health at risk.
Today, sedation dentistry is more popular than ever and many dentists use different techniques to ensure that dental treatment is as comfortable as possible. Dr Bashar Al-Naher, your London dentist for nervous patients at Care Dental Platinum, has developed an innovate technique that employs applied relaxation and conscious sedation in three stages.
The Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™
Dr Bashar Al-Naher developed the idea for the Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™ when he realised that many people were in pain during dental treatment. Pain is very subjective and while some people can sustain pain and discomfort through most dental procedures, others cannot even have their teeth thoroughly cleaned without local anaesthesia. The biggest advantage of the Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™ is that it is quite versatile and can be adapted to a number of different dental problems.
Your London dentist for nervous patients will administer a combination of oxygen and nitrous oxide prior to the treatment, which will gradually make you feel more relaxed. Once this state of relaxation is achieved, Dr Bashar Al-Naher will guide you through a series of mental images, enabling you to create scenarios that will help you forget about your dental operation. Through guided imagery, your London dentist for nervous patients will also communicate with you through the treatment, giving directions and any other information if needed. It is important to note that you will be awake throughout the procedure and you will be able to communicate with the dentist if needed.
Last but not least, another important aspect of the Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™ is pain-free dental technology. At Care Dental Platinum, we have invested in pain-free dental tools and equipment and we ensure that all noises and odours are eliminated when you are undergoing treatment.
