Here are some of the common questions and fears that we hear about visiting the dentist.  

Question or fears:

The dentist does not have time for people who are nervous like me and who need a lot of encouragement and support whist having treatment.


Answer:

At Bridge Street Dental Surgery we are all specially trained to support and work with patients who are nervous and about to undergo any treatment. We are here to make sure you feel comfortable and happy with your treatment throughout all of your experience.

Question or fears:

The dentist will be completely shocked and appalled by the state of my mouth. 

Answer:

Robert Eades is a trained medical professional who has seen lots of people with extremely poor oral health. You will be absolutely nowhere near the worst that they we have seen. Even if your mouth is in a bad condition, we are trained to help you and will go about your treatment in a professional manner. 

Questions and fears:

There is nothing that I can do to help myself overcome my fear.

Answer:

There are loads of things that we can do to help yourself visit the dentist and overcome your fear! There are lots of practical methods and techniques that can be used to help you.

Questions and fears:

Going to the dentist and having an injection into my gum will be excruciatingly painful.

Answer:

This is not the case with Robert Eades. We use distraction techniques to try to take our patients minds away from what is happening. Modern advances in technology mean that there are new ways to make painless injections into the gums, the most common of these is topical anaesthetic.

Question and fears:

When I go to the dentist I have no way of knowing what is going on, and have no control whatsoever.

Answer:

This is a common source of fear for people who are nervous about visiting the dentist. Before you undergo any dental treatment you will make a pre visit to see Robert Eades and the team and ask them to explain in detail about the procedure that you are going to undertake. We will be more than happy to help, and we can even explain what we are doing whilst carrying out the surgery itself. This is no trouble to the dentist and we will gladly help you in this way. 

Question and fear:

As long as my teeth seem okay, and I’m not experiencing any problems, I don’t need to visit the dentist. 

Answer:

Regular check ups at the dentist are extremely important. You may think that your teeth are fine, but a visit to the dentist to make sure is always advisable. If you do find that you need treatment, it is much easier to treat early. Leaving it could result in having much more lengthy surgery.
