Help for nervous patients

It is widely accepted that dental phobia and fear is something that puts many people off visiting the dentist and it is not uncommon for us to treat patients who have not visited a dentist in the last 30 years due to their phobia. We are here to help you overcome your fears of visiting the dentist and the fact you are reading this means that you have taken your first step towards this.

At Town Hall Dental, we have lots of experience of helping nervous patients. Our friendly, understanding and compassionate manner, together with our modern, pain-free techniques, are often all that is needed to put anxious patients at ease. We are here to listen to your needs and concerns, answer all your questions and explain every step of your treatment in a language that is easy to understand.

Intravenous sedation

We appreciate that some people need an extra helping hand, and so we offer intravenous (IV) sedation. This can also prove beneficial for patients who are undergoing a lengthy or complex procedure. This is a very straightforward procedure, which allows you to obtain the treatment you want in comfort with no anxiety.

Intravenous sedation involves a small injection, usually in the back of the hand. This is not uncomfortable, and will quickly make you feel drowsy and calm. You will be conscious throughout the treatment and will be able to co-operate with the dentist, although usually patients remember very little of this afterwards.

"Prior to visiting the Town Hall practice my only experiences had been with the school dentist many years previously and these had left me with some very difficult memories which prevented me from seeking any treatment whatsoever. Unfortunately, this left me with teeth that I knew needed some work but over the years I grew to accept the gradual degradation and periodic toothache. However, when I developed an abscess and felt the unbelievable pain that goes with it I knew that something had to be done.

I trawled the internet looking for recommendations and advice which led me to a local dentist who seemed to be the right one for me. Sadly, I didn't get the attention and support that I wanted so couldn't take it to the next stage of getting some work done. Nevertheless, the abscess was still with me and the pain hadn't gone away, so back on the search for the right dentist I became aware of Town Hall.

It was with some trepidation that I walked through the practice doors but I soon began to get reassurance from the reception staff who were very friendly and helpful. I was then seen by the practice manager Rachel, we sat down and talked about my past experiences and it was clear she wanted to know more about me as an individual. She then went on to give me a guided tour of the practice and introduce me to various staff members including the hygiene therapist and one of the dentists themselves. I felt a strong 'family atmosphere' which further reassured me this was the right place for me ! Incidentally, the refurbishment of the Town Hall has been carried out tastefully and within the character of the building which to me, as a born and bred local, is very important and pleasing to see.
