You might think you are stuck between a rock and a hard place. On the one hand, you know your teeth are deteriorating, but on the other you are terrified of the dentist. You hide your smile from colleagues, friends and family, and the condition of your teeth might be making you depressed. You might be totally aware, unless you receive treatment, you could have decay, a painful infection or worse still, lose a tooth. However brave you might try to be, you still can’t pluck up the courage to make it over the threshold of the clinic and have a confident smile to face the world. You are not alone with your fears. Help is at hand with the Same Day Teeth Suite.  

1# Trust

The first thing you need to know is all our dentists are friendly and reassuring.  They will not rush you into making any decisions for treatment. With a dentist you can trust, you can start to let go of your fear.

2# Modern Clinic

Our clinics are peaceful, relaxing places, far removed from the medical surgeries of yesteryear.

3# Dental Phobia

Most importantly, our dentists are trained in sedation dentistry, understand all aspects of dental phobia; the fear of white coats, the fear of needles, the fear of the drill, claustrophobia and loss of control.  Whatever your particular anxiety, they can help.

4# Get to know us

To begin combating your nightmare, and start caring for your teeth, make an appointment to meet and get to know your dentist and come in for a friendly chat.

5# Let us take a look

Make an appointment for a diagnosis. At least you will know how much or how little work needs to be done. Nobody will hurry you into treatment. Take your time and schedule a date when you are ready.

6# You’re Not Alone

Perhaps you are more comfortable with a partner or friend to accompany you. By all means, bring along a trusted friend or relation.

7# The ‘Magic’ Wand

If you need a filling and are frightened of having an anaesthetic in the traditional way, with an injection and needle, we have a great alternative; the Wand.  A clever device, the Wand is a computerised needle-free method of delivering anaesthetic so you won’t feel a thing.

8# IV Sedation

You can have IV sedation to prevent you from feeling anything during any aspect of treatment. All you have to do is drift away into a dream-like state. You might be missing a tooth and need an implant, or you might need more extensive restoration. Everything is now possible with a trusted dentist by your side.

9# Deep Sedation with An Anaesthetist

And for more complex treatments, you can have a deeper for IV sedation administered by an Anaesthetist.

10# Confidence
