Do you have a fear of visiting the dentist? If so, you are not alone. According to National Smile Month, nearly half of all UK adults experience dental phobia, with 12% of those experiencing extreme dental anxiety. It is the number one cause of nervousness in the UK, more so than a fear of heights.
If you put off visiting the dentist because of anxiety, you could be creating problems for yourself further down the line. We can’t see the early signs of tooth decay and gum disease, only a dentist can spot these and treat them before they become an issue. Brushing alone won’t shift built up plaque and tartar. By the time we’ve registered a problem, it’s almost too late. And if our fear of the dentist means that we leave an issue until it’s become severe toothache, then expensive and time-consuming restoration work may be the only solution.
If things have gone this far, and you need to see the emergency dentist in Bournemouth, don’t worry! The Queens Park Dental Team is experienced in working with emergency appointments and we totally understand that some patients experience anxiety in the dentist’s chair. Our principal dentist, Hannah Neve, uses modern dental technology to make your visit to us as easy as possible.
One way she does this is by using the Vibraject injection method for administering local anaesthetic. This is an almost pain-free way of receiving an injection, as the vibrations lessen the sensation of the needle going in.
Hannah and the rest of our dental team work with compassion and understanding and can explain any treatment before you receive it so you know what is coming every step of the way. They are there to reassure you and put you at ease, as well as carry out your treatment with professionalism and care.
Visiting the dentist can feel difficult and no one wants to have to see the emergency dentist in Bournemouth – but if it has come to that, you can be assured that if you see the Queens Park Dental Team, we’ll make your experience as easy on you as we can.
