Nervous Patients

Feeling nervous about visiting the dentist is not uncommon, especially if you've had an unpleasant or painful experience in the past. But if you're putting off much-needed dental treatment because the thought of being in a dental chair makes you anxious, rest assured – we do things differently at Dentalcare West.

Whether you're just a little nervous, or you're feeling highly anxious, we understand and we can help. In fact, we have developed a range of relaxation techniques and pain relief options to help change the way you feel about visiting the dentist. Above all, we take the time to make you comfortable and 'in control' of your treatment.

We listen, care and offer genuine support. Some of the techniques we use include:

  • Relaxation Appointments with your choice of music or DVD to help keep your mind focused on the things you enjoy
  • Friendly team who take their time and listen
  • Private treatment rooms
  • Nitrous oxide or oral conscious sedation
  • Sedation dentistry
  • Time-line therapy
