How I can help

Scared of treatment discomfort

Dentistry is a very intimate experience and when you are lying in the chair, thoughts often turn to "is this about to hurt?" Quite often its this fear of the unexpected, the unknown. Especially when its a new dentist and you havent got a track record with them yet.

 

There are some great ways we can get round this for you, starting with the simplest:

An emergency panic button!

When there are things going on in your mouth, its difficult to talk and us Dentists love to ask questions when you cant answer back!  We have an emergency stop button, if you are finding things difficult, experiencing any discomfort, need suction or a rinse, just press the button and we will know.

 

Optragate

Its so easy to get jaq ache when your mouth is open for a while. We use a very comfortable flexible silicone ring that fits behinds your lips and holds you gently open, preventing the jaw ache, you can just lie there and relax.

The optragate is great as well because it holds a suction tube to keep the back of your mouth dry.

 

Sensitive teeth when visiting the hygienist

This is extremely common, the situation where the hygienist or dentist uses the Ultrasonic tool to remove the tarter deposits. Its a great device for cleaning teeth and helping you achieve great gum health health, but it can be sensitive sometimes.

A few ways round this -

we can use ORAQIX, a numbing gel placed around the neck of the teeth to reduce sensation

Laser therapy 5 mins before can desensitise really nicely

Densitising pastes, even Colgate ProRelief toothpaste is very useful beforehand

Happy Air can numb the teeth really well and make you feel nice too - we have a hygienist trained in Relative Analgesia

We can of course numb with a short acting anaesthetic which really makes things easier.
