According to a survey from the British Dental Health Foundation, there are still large numbers of people who have an irrational fear of seeking dental treatment.
Speaking to more than 2,000 people, it was found that 33 percent believe a routine check-up was scarier than the common phobia of interacting with other people, while dental visits were also deemed scarier than open spaces, blushing, driving, animals and confined spaces.
Of those who saw dentists as intimidating 31 percent said needles and injections were the factor that influenced their fear most keenly, while 25 percent suggested pain was the main cause for concern.
Here at Dental Elements delivering gentle dentistry is at the heart of what we do, as we understand it’s important to our patients.
Our ethos is to always take our time:
-We listen and never rush our patients.
-All our clinicians are trained and very experienced in gentle injections
-We have a super digital injection system called THE WAND® which delivers pain free anaesthesia just to the tooth which is being worked – which means no numb faces. As a caring practice we will be passing on just the costs of the technology which is a tiny fee of £10. You can be assured of a pain free and relaxed experience at Dental Elements
-We have invested not only into the lasted technological advancements but also award-winning materials to achieve great results. Our patients can rest assured they are in safe hands.
-The reality is our modern dental centre is much friendlier and we welcome new patients who alert us to their anxieties.
