The best way to manage your dental phobia is to face it head-on. That does not mean diving straight into a plethora of dental treatments but making an appointment to discuss your fears with a dentist is a great way to start.
It is best you mention any dental fear as soon as possible so our dental and healthcare professionals can work with you to put you at ease.
Aside from seeing a dentist, relaxation, counselling, and behavioural techniques such as positive reinforcement are all known to alleviate dental phobia successfully.
The atmosphere inside any dental practice is as much about the environment as it is about the people. Our treatment rooms and waiting areas are quiet, relaxed, calm, and comfortable.
Our dental practitioners are highly experienced in dealing with nervous patients and on-hand to discuss your anxieties with compassion and understanding. You can discuss treatment in detail with your dentist before your appointment, and we can help you work through your fears at your own pace.
You are in safe hands at Mint Dental Clinic. Our team is highly trained, professional, caring, and always ready to greet you with a friendly smile. We strive to make every aspect of treatment as quick and stress-free as possible.
Learning you need to undergo a dental treatment such as a filling, a root canal treatment, or a tooth extraction can exacerbate a phobia, especially if you have never experienced the treatment before. It may be the image of the anaesthesia process that scares you or the idea of enduring a potentially uncomfortable procedure.
We can assure you that the comfort and well-being of our patients is our top priority. During treatment, your dentist will continually check you are comfortable.
Dentistry has evolved massively over the past 50 years due to improved procedures, and advanced technology.
The modern technologies we use to carry out treatments are designed with the patient’s comfort in mind, which is of huge benefit to nervous patients.
At Mint Dental Clinic we use the iTero scanner to take accurate and highly detailed colour images of your teeth and gums to produce a digital impression of your mouth. This process is quick, eliminates sticky moulds and produces a simulation of your future smile for Invisalign® orthodontic treatment.
