Here at Sparkle Dental Boutique we try to make our patients and clients feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible, but the simple truth is that no-one really enjoys going to the dentist. For some people, however, their dislike of the dentist’s chair goes even further than that and they actually suffer from a dental phobia. Sometimes this can be related to a fear of needles, a fear of dental tools or simply just a fear of the pain they may feel. Of course, the longer that patients with a dental phobia stay away from their local clinic, the more likely it is that they will develop serious oral health problems, requiring major treatments and perhaps even cosmetic dentistry to fix their smiles.
Many dental clinics serving patients from Hounslow will do their best to make nervous patients feel at ease, allowing them to have a friend or family member accompany them or letting them see the room ahead of their appointment, so they can familiarise themselves with their surroundings and ask any questions. Patients at Sparkle Dental are more than welcome to do both and we also allow you to bring in your own music to help you relax and serve calming drinks like camomile tea in our reception area.
Aromatherapy candles in the clinic itself can help create a calming mood, while comfortable pillows and blankets help make sure that the dental phobic is as still and comfortable as possible during the treatment.
Even these measures are not enough to help some patients, whose quality of life would benefit enormously from cosmetic dentistry but who simply can’t bring themselves to sit in the dreaded dentist’s chair. Really nervous clients will be glad to know that one of the practitioners at Sparkle Dental has a special interest in IV sedation. A small amount of sedative is administered ahead of your treatment allowing you to have your smile transformed without feeling any fear or stress at being in a dental clinic.
