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.

  • "Having been anxious for years about dental visits, I visited this practise after suffering dental pain was immediately felt reassured by the staff. Ended up having to get root treatment. I received first class care, felt no pain and had nothing to be worried about."

  • "Phobia of the dentists that's me. Never trusted a dentist until now. I've had problems with my teeth most of my life. Feared the dentists and never found a dentist I could trust until now. Thanks to my neighbour who told me about Whitecart, she wasn't wrong, they actually treat like you like family. Margaret who is the receptionist makes you feel at home and not at a dentist. Makes you feel comfortable and at easy. My whole experience at whitecart has been one of the best experiences of my life, in fact it has changed my life and I actually love going to the dentist now. Massive thank you to my Dentist Carol and also Alexis for helping me achieve my smile back again."
