Here are some helpful tips in finding dental phobia treatment:
- Injections shouldn’t hurt if done patiently.
- Schedule a consultation instead of a procedure. Sometimes just having a chance to talk to the dentist without the pressure of an exam or procedure can help rebuild the trust that may have been lost during a dramatic procedure.
- Look into dentist anxiety medication. A light oral sedative can put you at ease before a procedure and can be budget-friendly. Dr Helen can recommend some medications.
- Remember that Dr Helen can do twilight dentistry, also known as sleep dentistry, under general anaesthetic at her practice for the most phobic patients. Cleans, fillings, and crowns can all be done under general anaesthetic and are as simple as falling asleep and waking up with a perfected smile.
