Nervous Patients

At Etwall Dental Practice, our compassionate team of dental professionals is trained to put nervous patients at ease and make your visit as comfortable as possible. Your oral health and wellness are important to us. Don’t let dental anxiety prevent you from getting the dental treatment you need.

Why am I nervous?

There are many reasons you may feel nervous about visiting the dentist.

  • A past bad experience
  • Fear of needles
  • Strong gag reflex
  • Dislike of the smell and sounds of the dental surgery
  • Embarrassment about the condition of your teeth
  • Dislike of not being in control

How can you help me work through my fears?

There are several ways we can help you overcome your dental anxiety such as

  • Visiting the practice and meeting our team, so you are familiar with the surroundings.
  • Communicate with us so we can help to alleviate your anxiety by ensuring you understand each step of your treatment and why we are doing it.
  • Wear headphones and listen to music during treatment.
  • Use calming techniques like controlled breathing.
  • Pause treatment for short breaks so you feel more in control.
  • Schedule your treatment so it is manageable and less overwhelming.

I’m still very nervous — what else can you do?

For our very nervous patients, we offer IV sedation to help you relax during treatment.

COVID-19 update

Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.

Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.

From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.

Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.

We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.

This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
