Why visiting the dentist doesn’t have to be a chore

If it’s been a long time since your last dental visit, your oral health may be at risk. No matter how careful you are with your daily oral hygiene routine, plaque can hide in hard-to-reach places in your mouth and, if not removed properly, it will lead to gum disease and tooth decay.

Regular dental visits are a vital part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. If you are skipping your dental appointment because you are afraid of the dentist, we have good news – at Care Dental Platinum, your London dentist for nervous patients, you can get the treatment you deserve without feeling any pain or discomfort. In 2017, we received the award for the best treatment of nervous patients in the Private Dentistry Awards, thanks to the Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™.

Why are people scared of the dentist?

It’s natural to be a bit scared of the dentist, and usually this mild fear ™can be easily conquered. What makes some of us more afraid of dental visits than others are fear of pain, loss of control, needle phobia and bad past experiences. People who are afraid of going to the dentist are more likely to have many dental problems, including gum disease and tooth decay. Fear and avoidance of the dentist are also triggered by pain. Luckily, your London dentist for nervous patients can help with the Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™.

A pain-free dental experience?

The Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™ is an innovative approach to painless dentistry that combines three basic elements: conscious sedation, relaxing imagery and pain-free dental technology. Whether you are having a filling or dental implants, Dr Bashar Al-Naher will use happy air – a combination of oxygen (70%) and nitrous oxide (30%) – prior to the treatment you help you relax and feel more comfortable in the dentist’s chair. Then, guided imagery will be used as a distraction method and in order for the dentist to communicate instructions about the procedure to the patient. The last component of the Enjoyable Dentistry Technique™ is pain-free dental technology. At Care Dental Platinum, your London dentist for nervous patients, we use state-of-the-art dental tools and technology to avoid any discomfort.
