Dental Care for Nervous Patients

For some patients, the prospect of having dental treatment can be a nerve-racking experience.

Being afraid of the dentist is different for different people. Maybe it's the fear that it will hurt, or that the smells and sounds bring back bad memories of childhood dental experiences.

If you haven't visited a dentist for years because of anxiety or fear, be assured that you will find the experience more pleasant today.

The good news is that our highly trained team understands your fear and is skilled at providing dental procedures for nervous patients in the Sutton area. With a combination of gentleness and kindness , they make dental treatment stress free for anxious dental patients.

Sensational Smiles has also improved dentistry to enhance nervous patients’ dental care. The prospect of having dental care delivered painlessly relieves anxieties. The dental wand looks like a pen and is an injection system that is computerized to deliver the anaesthetic slowly and painlessly. This is terrific for those with a phobia of needles. Topical anaesthetic can be applied to numb the gums before the injection, so you don't even feel the needle.
Here at Sensational Smiles, we offer high-end treatment in our area, offering services ranging from preventative treatment to cosmetic dentistry. As a leading dentist in Sutton, I offer the comprehensive services to bring you the smile of your dreams. Our experienced team will be on-hand to provide the top-quality treatment you need, and we pride ourselves in offering an exceptional standard of patient care at every step of the way.

Sensational Smiles offers a range of options to suit all patients’ needs:

Local Anaesthetic options to suit all patients

Local Anaesthetic:

For those patients who are slightly anxious, all you need is TLC and a caring, gentle dentist. Most patients who fit into this category will do well with a gentle dentist alongside local anaesthetic. The local anaesthetic is gently applied to the region where treatment is needed, and this will make the treatment pain-free. We always check to ensure you are completely numb before we start. If you are not, we apply more anaesthetic until you are.
Oral Sedation options to suit all patients

Oral Sedation:

Our dentists are aware that some patients are anxious and are trained to take your fears seriously and deal with them sensitively. This sedation requires patients to take a sedative tablet about an hour prior to your dental treatment. This makes you feel quite relaxed, happy, and a little drowsy while remaining conscious. Eat normally on the day of oral sedation. Don't drink alcohol before the treatment.
IV Sedation options to suit all patients

IV Sedation:

IV Sedation is the best form of alleviating anxiety. A sedative is administered into your vein by our specialist doctor. This makes you feel very sleepy, relaxed and comfortable – alleviating any anxiety you may have. Once the procedure is over, the anaesthetist will administer a drug that reverses the sedation, which wakes you up. Although you are pretty much back to normal, we recommend that someone look after you for the rest of the day. We recommend that you avoid driving, cooking and making any important decisions.

Sensational Smiles
Dedicated to Nervous Patients

Top 7 reasons to choose Sensational Smiles if you are nervous about dental treatment.
  • We allocate longer appointment times so you don’t feel rushed and have time to ask questions.
  • We clearly explain the procedures and steps involved, and continuously reassure you of the progress throughout the treatment.
  • We give you control; if you put your hand up we will stop treatment straight away.
  • We allow you to have breaks during the treatment because we recognize it can be very uncomfortable to keep your mouth open for very long.
  • We use topical anesthetic gel to numb the gum before administering the injection, if you like.
  • We always check that you are completely numb before we start the treatment.
  • Liaise with your GP if you feel particularly nervous and arrange calming medicine.
