Dental Anxiety / Phobia
Some people are extremely anxious about dental treatment, to the point that they will completely avoid it until they are in pain. This is know as Dental Phobia.
At Whitecart we have a lot of patients who feel this way. We have several different ways of helping people with this. Sometimes, all it takes is for your dentist to listen carefully to what your worries are and understand them. In other cases, patients may need additional help to get treatment.
We offer IV sedation to patients, where you have a sedative which relaxes you enough to get your treatment carried out. This is very successful with phobic patients.
We also offer hypnosis as another way to help relax people and treat their anxiety.
We will take the time to discuss fully with each individual and consider which option suits you best before agreeing on a treatment plan.
