Dental Anxiety & Pain Control Warrnambool

Are you afraid of visiting your dentist?

Are you afraid of needles?

Are you dreaded to pick up the phone to book the appointment?

These might sound ridiculous – but they are real.

Studies have found that patients fear three things in the dental office — loss of control, embarrassment, or pain.

Dental anxiety and fear are common and potentially problematic, both for the patient and for the dental team in managing such patients. Furthermore, dental fear still presents a major barrier to the uptake of dental treatment.

The definition of being brave is doing something that scares you. So, your best course of action is to visit a dentist as soon as you can.

Avoiding a visit will make dental health issues worse and may result in the kind of treatment that is causing the fear.

Anxiety & Pain Control Plan

What is needed is a plan, which starts with a simple visit to your Warrnambool dentist.

This will involve an examination, and several X-rays of your teeth and jaw to help identify holes, tooth decay under existing fillings, possible wisdom teeth issues and bone levels of the jaw.

Your Warrnambool dentist will discuss any concerns with you and your options for correcting what is wrong. It needs to be a plan that suits what you want to achieve and your budget.

You will then decide together the best way forward that will help you conquer your fear and restore your oral health.

We will:

  • Start with the simple things and gradually work towards the larger issues as we help you overcome your fear.
  • Consider methods to alleviate anxiety and fear, such as happy gas and sleep dentistry.
  • Talk you through everything that is going to happen so that you understand the oral health benefit that will result from the treatment.
  • Listen to you and your concerns.

We have helped hundreds of patients work through their fear.

For most, the treatment required is not as bad as they initially thought, and by the end of it, they are happy to continue with regular examinations.

In the end, you will have a smile that you can be proud of and be confident that you won’t have to wait until it’s too late to visit the dentist again.
