Phobic and Nervous Patient Care Options for Treatment

Worry-Free Dentistry for Phobic and Nervous Patients at Wanstead Dental

Dealing with dental phobia, or the fear of going to the dentist, may make it very difficult for you to get the dental treatments. We understand how challenging it is for you to worry about upcoming dental treatments, so we give you a number of options to make the experience a lot more pleasant.

At Wanstead Dental, we understand how hard it is for nervous and phobic patients to have dental treatments. We will listen carefully to your concerns to make the entire experience as convenient and comfortable as possible for you, and we will make sure that you will have a worry-free treatment.

When Would I Need Phobic and Nervous Patient Care?

Phobic and nervous patient is ideal for you if you feel anxious or afraid whenever you go to the dentist, or when the thought of having a dental treatment makes you panic. Our goal is to make the dental treatments as worry-free, and as pleasant, as possible for you.

Put Your Mind at Ease with Worry-Free Treatments, at Wanstead Dental

Our phobic and nervous patient care treatments will help you have an easier time dealing with dental treatments – from simple procedures like routine dental visits, to the more complicated treatments such as oral surgery or a dental implant treatment.

What’s Involved in Phobic and Nervous Patient Care?

We offer the following nervous and phobic patient care treatment options:

  • Oral Sedation – The technique of administering sedatives orally (through the mouth), so that you can have a dental treatment experience that is free from worries, fear, or anxiety.
  • Intravenous (IV) Sedation – The technique of administering the sedatives through the veins (intravenously), with the sedative quickly taking effect to bring you to a completely relaxed, worry-free state for the dental treatment.
  • General Anesthesia (available in our Berlin clinic) – Under general anesthesia, your mind will be put in a deep sleep state, while your body will be numbed. This allows you to go through a pain-free, and worry-free, dental treatment. We offer general anesthesia in our Berlin clinic, and will take care of the details of your trip (flight and accommodation reservations, travel fees) to make the experience a hassle-free one.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy – Wanstead Dental proudly offers some of the best cognitive and behavioural treatments – without the use of drugs to individuals who suffer from dental fear and anxiety. We are one of the select places in the UK, and the rest of Europe, to offer such treatments, allowing nervous patients to undergo dental treatments with ease and comfort.
